Being a Wall Street investment expert has never looked so dangerous.

George Clooney and Julia Roberts star in Jodie Foster’s latest directorial project Money Monster as Lee Gates, the “Wizard of Wall Street” at the helm of a TV show called Money Monster, and Gates’ producer, respectively.

Disaster strikes when Gates is taken hostage on-air by Jack O’Connell‘s disgruntled antihero, and is forced at gunpoint to put on a bomb vest. This first trailer highlight’s Clooney’s charisma as an investment banker wiz, and Roberts’ canning ability to take charge from behind the camera whilst under pressure.

Watch the first intense trailer for the political drama in the video above.

Money Monster is set for a May 13, 2016 release date.
