The movie adaptation of Michael Lewis’s smash hit book The Big Short – the gripping tale of the fund managers who spotted the looming unwinding of America’s financial system in the GFC – comes to Australian theatres on January 14th.

When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
