Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Romain Duris, Charlie Plummer and Timothy Hutton make up the all-star cast for upcoming 2018 release All The Money In the World, focusing on the real-life story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Plummer). This past week, a brilliant new clip and featurette from the film have been revealed, with both of them now available to watch below:
Inspired by true events, but of course with some fictionalisation for dramatic purposes, All The Money In The World follows the desperate attempts by John Paul Getty III’s mother Gail (Williams) in convincing the teen’s billionaire grandfather (Plummer) to part with some of his wealth, paying her son’s captors before they become increasingly violent and brutal.
With the life of her child hanging in the balance, Gail becomes unlikely friends with Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg), racing against time in a journey that exposes the truth behind how valued love really is when put against the incomparable lure of money.
The film isn’t one that has been smooth sailing since it got off the ground, and unfortunately became embroiled in the scandals making their way through Hollywood right now when former lead star, Kevin Spacey was accused of a string of sexual assaults and misconduct.
Following the accusations, the decision was made to scrub Spacey from the movie entirely and bring the great Christopher Plummer into the fold, taking over the role and becoming a part of some of the quickest organised reshoots the movie world has ever seen.
Now though, the film looks set to impress and leave that controversy behind upon its debut in January. We can’t wait to see it!
All The Money In The World comes to cinemas across the UK on January 5, 2018.
