George Clooney and Julia Roberts are once again reunited onscreen in the upcoming thriller, “Money Monster.” The first international trailer for the film looks intense and it’s immediately obvious that the filmmakers are trying to make a statement about Wall Street.

“Money Monster” is directed by actress Jodie Foster (“The Silence of the Lamb,” “Elysium”) with a script by Alan DiFiore, Jim Kouf, and Jamie Linden. The film also stars Jack O’Connell, who last year starred in Angelina Jolie’s film, “Unbroken.”

You can read the synopsis and watch the full trailer below! “Money Monster” will open nationwide on May 13, 2016.

Synopsis: In the taut and tense thriller Money Monster, Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (Jack O’Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) hostage live on air. Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive while simultaneously uncovering the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.
