All the Money in the World – Official Trailer

About ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD:

Rome, 1973. Masked men kidnap a teenage boy named Paul. His grandfather, J. Paul Getty, is the richest man in the world, a billionaire oil magnate, but he’s notoriously miserly. His favorite grandson’s abduction is not reason enough for him to part with any of his fortune. All the Money in the World follows Gail, Paul’s devoted, strong-willed mother, who unlike Getty, has consistently chosen her children over his fortune.

Her son’s life in the balance with time running out, she attempts to sway Getty even as her son’s mob captors become increasingly more determined, volatile and brutal. When Getty sends his enigmatic security man Fletcher Chace to look after his interests, he and Gail become unlikely allies in this race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

The film is inspired by historical events. Some scenes, characters and dialogue have been fictionalized for dramatic purposes.

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD was directed by Ridley Scott. The film stars Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Romain Duris, Charlie Plummer. Based on the book by: John Pearson

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD releases in Australian cinemas on January 4, 2018.
