George Clooney gets taken hostage on live TV in first Money Monster trailer

We can all relate to losing money in some fashion, be it the result of ill-advised investments or the washing machine, but I doubt that there are many of us who would dream of escalating to the next level by taking George Clooney hostage on live television. In the Jodie Foster directed MONEY MONSTER, George Clooney plays Lee Gates, a financial guru who "uses his whiz-bang television show to tout stocks to viewers who can’t tell their bulls from their bears." However, a young man (Jack O'Connell) then hijacks the live broadcast and takes Gates hostage after becoming distraught over losing his family's life savings on a failed investment.

I was hoping to be a little more impressed by this trailer for MONEY MONSTER than I ended up being, but it still feels like it could be a worthwhile thriller, especially with George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Jack O'Connell leading the film; unfortunately, the trailer also seems to suffer from the annoying trend of revealing more than it should. Can't win them all I suppose, what do you folks think?

MONEY MONSTER  is set for a May 13, 2016 release.
