One of the most eagerly awaited films of the season, Dumb Money, is gearing up for its U.S. theatrical debut on October 20, 2023! Directed by the talented Craig Gillespie, the biographical comedy-drama takes its inspiration from Ben Mezrich’s book, The Antisocial Network: The GameStop Short Squeeze and the Ragtag Group of Amateur Traders That Brought Wall Street to Its Knees.
With a star-studded ensemble cast including Paul Dano, Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogen, and Pete Davidson, Dumb Money tells the captivating true story of ordinary individuals who turned the tables on Wall Street, amassing fortunes by taking on one of the biggest hedge funds in the industry. As the David-vs.-Goliath GameStop short squeeze unfolds, fortunes are made and lost overnight, potentially reshaping the world of finance forever! The official synopsis, via Sony Pictures Entertainment, reads:
"“Dumb Money is the ultimate David vs. Goliath tale, based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop (yes, the mall videogame store) into the world’s hottest company.”"
