For the second year in a row, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has found itself in hot water for failing to nominate a group of diverse individuals for the 2016 Oscars. Despite the Academy's apology, everyone from Jada Pinkett Smith to Don Cheadle to director Spike Lee has taken a stand, whether by simply tweeting about the blatant inequality or boycotting the award ceremony entirely. The latest actor to offer their perspective on the issue is George Clooney, who shared his thoughts on how Hollywood is "moving in the wrong direction" during an interview with Variety. "I don't think it's a problem of who you're picking as much as it is: How many options are available to minorities in film, particularly in quality films?" he said. "I think we have a lot of points we need to come to terms with. I find it amazing that we're an industry that in the 1930s, »

Director Jodie Foster's "Money Monster" is totally feelin' the Bern, giving an angry investor (Jack O'Connell) a chance to rail against Wall Street and the 1 percent by taking a financial show TV host hostage. George Clooney plays Lee Gates, "the wizard of Wall Street," who apparently gives crappy investment advice to the suckers who watch him on "Money Monster." Foster's thriller plays out in real-time as Lee and his producer, Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts), are taken hostage and have to try and stay alive while also uncovering the truth behind some big-money corruption.
Here's the first trailer:
It looks like a tense one. It could also, potentially, be a preachy one. But Wall Street angst is all the rage these days, and real-time thrillers/hostage situations tend to make for gripping drama. Just don't try this at home, angry people with guns!
"Money Monster" is scheduled for release on »

Jodie Foster‘s last directorial effort, The Beaver, made less than a million dollars domestically. That’s unfortunate, because the 2011 drama, starring Mel Gibson, is a very good film that deserved more love than it got. The Beaver isn’t a movie for everybody, but Foster’s newest film, Money Monster, looks far more accessible. Watch the Money Monster trailer after the jump. George Clooney plays […]

The trailer for Money Monster is here, and it's kind of like somebody saw The Big Short and decided to do something extreme about it. (Not a union thing, though.) Directed by Jodie Foster, the thriller really tells the story of a bamboozled investor (Jack O'Connell) who turns Julia Roberts's finance show into a hostage show, maybe makes an unlikely friend, and definitely gets to see George Clooney do some powerful problem solving. See some of that above, and get all the answers everybody's yelling about on May 13. »
