Jodie Foster’s latest directorial work opens at Cannes this year, and with George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Jack O’Connell heading up an impressive cast Money Monster has the makings of a box office hit.

We have an exclusive clip from the film for you today, showing the interplay between Clooney and Roberts before everything goes dramatically wrong. The film is out in the US on the 13th of May, in the UK on the 27th.


Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (Jack O’Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) hostage live on air.

Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive while simultaneously uncovering the truth behind a tangle of big money lies.
