The First Trailer for ‘Dumb Money’ Brings an Improbable True Story to Life

The first trailer for Dumb Money has been released online. Directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo, who based the film on Ben Mezrich‘s The Antisocial Network, the movie stars Paul Dano, Pete Davidson, Vincent D’Onofrio, America Ferrera, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos, Sebastian Stan, Shailene Woodley, Seth Rogen, Dane DeHaan, Myha’la Harrold, and Talia Ryder.

Here is the plot synopsis:

Dumb Money is the ultimate David vs. Goliath tale, based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop (yes, the mall videogame store) into the world’s hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich – until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down.”
