The international posters for the critically acclaimed satirical comedy “The Big Short” has just been released by Paramount Pictures, bearing the tagline, “If You Can't Beat the Banks, Make Them Pay.”

Based on a true story, the financial crisis-themed movie stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo, Hamish Linklater, John Magaro, Rafe Spall, Jeremy Strong, Marisa Tomei and Finn Wittrock.

In the film, when four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.

With its fresh, irreverent take on one of the most widely covered stories of the century, “The Big Short” transforms a dark chapter of American history into a riveting cautionary tale shot through with black humor and quirky characters.

Castmember Steve Carell hopes the film rattles a few cages. "If I were at a cocktail party and someone asked me what this movie is about, I'd say, 'Do you remember when subprime mortgages went bust and all these companies went out of business and not one person went to jail? Do you remember that? Do you remember how everything just exploded? And then the government came in and bailed everybody out and everything seemed okay? That's what this movie is about. It's a horror movie and way scarier than the way I just described it.'"


Directed by Adam McKay, the screenplay is by Charles Randolph and Adam McKay, based upon the book by Michael Lewis.

Opening across the Philippines in January 2016, “The Big Short” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
