George Clooney, Julia Roberts Are Hostages Taking on Wall Street in 'Money Monster'

Pushed to his limits, a furious investor who has lost it all takes a TV Wall Street analyst hostage in “Money Monster.”

“I might be the one with a gun here, but I am not the criminal,” says Jack O’Connell, who plays a character gone mad–taking George Clooney’s newsman character Lee Gates as his hostage on live TV while demanding answers for the financial hit that has left him ruined.

Julia Roberts plays the producer from behind-the-scenes, who manages to capture every angle perfectly for broadcast amid the chaos.

The drama, directed by Jodie Foster, unfolds in real time and opens on May 13.
