It’s hard to believe that Michael Lewis’ The Big Short was published well over five years ago. At the time I really enjoyed the book and wrote a post about it. However if you had asked me whether anyone could make a movie from the book I would have been skeptical to say the least.

Today a trailer for the The Big Short movie starring Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt and directed by Adam McKay just hit. It looks good. From my Twitter feed:

I haven’t been this excited about a financial movie since Margin Call or The Wolf of Wall Street. The Big Short hits at Christmas 2015.

PS I recently revisited an earlier post on lessons learned from Wall Street-related movies and really enjoyed it.
