Columbia Pictures released the first trailer for the interesting looking baseball themed Moneyball, the latest Brad Pitt movie also starring Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Chris Pratt. Directing is Bennett Miller who made Capote back in 2005 with Hoffman.
Moneyball is the story of Oakland A’s general manager Bill Beane’s (Brad Pitt) successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer generated analysis to draft his players.
Besides the great cast and director, Moneyball also has academy award winner Wally Pfister (Inception, The Dark Knight) in the director of photography chair, so expect great looking shots. Considering I ain’t really a baseball fan, Moneyball has me intrigue so I am looking forward to seeing more from it . On a side note, this has come a long way since this piece of news.
Moneyball opens September 23rd in North America and November 4th in the UK.
