Last year “All the Money in the world” movie came into the limelight all because of the wrong reasons. First, it was because of the Kevin Spacey who was accused of sexual abuse and then gender pay gap as Mark Wahlberg received vast chunks of money for reshoot as compared to his female co-star. However, the film got released and received decent feedback from the audiences. The story of the movie revolved around the actual incident when John Paul Getty’s grandson was kidnapped.
Now, FX is ready to represent their take on the same events with acclaimed director Danny Boyle at its helm. Ridley Scott version of the story had a serious tone and showed the story from the different perspective. Whereas Boyle’s take on the story is unique and has all the necessary elements of his signature style. The center plot is still the same, but in this rendition, we see John Paul Getty III(grandson) himself planned his kidnapping to get the money from his wealthy grandfather.
The trailer is captivating one and way it has been edited surely sparks an interest in the audience to give it a try for once. From the trailer, it looks like we understand the story, but at the very end it asks “Yes, you may think you know the story, but you haven’t seen it like this.” With this epic series, Brendan Fraser makes a comeback, and we hope he stunned us this time as he did in The Mummy.
You can check out the series on March 25 as it premiers worldwide on that date. Soon we will review it and till then keep reading!!
