Arbitrage trailer led by Gere
Arbitrage stars Richard Gere doing what Gere does best but more than that he looks like he's in a strong and dramatic thriller and he's also alongside Tim Roth, Susan Sarandon, and quite a few other recognisable names including William Friedkin.
The trailer does, once again, tell us a little too much from the actual film but on the other hand it's a really good trailer that has sold me on the film and the performance of the lead. Why can't we get great trailers that don't give things away from the film?
Here's the blurb for Arbitrage:
Arbitrage, the feature-directing debut of writer Nicholas Jarecki, is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. When we first meet New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) on the eve of his 60th birthday, he appears the very portrait of success in American business and family life. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Brit Marling), Miller's also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Cote (Laetetia Casta). Just as he's about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a face from Miller's past. One wrong turn ignites the suspicions of NYPD Detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth), who will stop at nothing in his pursuits. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of even his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?
Another financial thriller, well it's certainly the time for them and if you keep going to the trailer you'll see it's more than you might think. This is looking really strong, and with Tim Roth chasing down Richard Gere how can you not be interested?
The film is written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki who you might have known from writing The Informers or directing The Outsider documentary. It's his first feature and he's grabbed a strong cast and delivered a strong trailer.
