Everyone wants a cut of the new posters for All the Money in the World

After Ridley Scott replaced ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD star Kevin Spacey, who's battling a series of sexual misconduct allegations, with Christopher Plummer in the role of J. Paul Getty, it soon became time to re-think their promotional material for the film. Which is unfortunate, because by the time the news of Spacey's alleged behavior began making the rounds, a full-length trailer and poster for the project had already been making the rounds. With Spacey out, and Plummer in, the studio is going to have to conjure some mighty movie magic as well as a handsome sum in order to keep the film's December 22nd release date.

The posters, which were exclusively revealed by Entertainment Weekly can be seen below:

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s adviser (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

While I don't care much for the poster featuring the ravenous crowd, I find the image depicting the severed ear made of cash to be quite chilling – particularly when you consider that the kidnappers had sent the boy's severed ear back to his mother, played by Michelle Williams, in an effort to encourage them to pay for his "safe" return).

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD is somehow still on track to arrive in theaters come December 22nd, despite Spacey's egregious scandal and post-production setbacks.
