I always remember the time about 3 years ago I worked with an American in Scotland and during breaktimes he used to boast the Americans are best at all Sports, which is untrue, (been Scottish our expectations are low as were not the best but not the worst) but popular American sports like baseball I would agree. MONEYBALL stars Brad Pitt as Billy Deane the man who re-invented Oakland A’s from a loosing team to a successful one using a using a modern analytical sabermetrics system. Basically the new trailer combines the footage of the first trailer with a lot of brand new footage, its an anticipated movie probably in the running for awards when they come around at the start of next year. Fans of rags to riches sporting movies like The Fighter will certainly enjoy this even non baseballs fans should like this as well .
MONEYBALL also stars Jonah Hill,Kathryn Morris, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robin Wright. The movie is directed by Bennett Miller, with Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin wrote the script from a story by Stan Chervin with the movie coming out in UK&Ireland on November 25th with the movie making its debut at Toronto Film Festival before making it to USA on September 23rd.
MONEYBALL is a movie for anybody who has ever dreamed of taking on the system. Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland A’s and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball’s conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. It’s more than baseball, it’s a revolution – one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he’s tearing out the heart and soul of the game.
