Christian Bale, Brad Pitt’s ‘The Big Short’ Gets Release Date, AFI Fest Premiere.

There’s nothing terribly sexy about the crash of the housing market, but putting Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale together in a movie about the crash of the housing market kinda is. The two-and-a-half minute clip reveals that some serious Hollywood star power is on board for this project, including Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling.Paramount Pictures opted for “Good Morning America” Tuesday morning to announce that Adam McKay’s “The Big Short” — with an all-star cast featuring Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Marisa Tomei and Melissa Leo — would be getting a December 2015 release.

According to Vulture, Paramount and Pitt’s production company Plan B Entertainment began adapting the novel back in 2010 shortly after the father of six signed on to Moneyball, which was also based on one of Lewis’ books and later became an Oscar-nominated film. The film, based on the book by Michael Lewis (“The Blind Side”), tells the story of bond and real estate derivative geeks who saw the housing crash of 2008 coming and bet against the collateralized debt obligation bubble, thus striking it rich.

These guys, who were really just trying to stick it to the big banks (which themselves would of course be bailed out), hit the jackpot while the American dream was being flushed down the toilet for regular Joes in the real world. The announcement comes on the heels of a wave of successful test screenings and at a time when the studio could really use some more fodder for the awards season. Bale plays Michael Burry, a former neurology resident and a self-taught investor who obsessively pores over prospectuses to uncover the looming mortgage apocalypse. It’s a potential power player for New Regency, already riding a one-two best picture punch in “12 Years a Slave” and “Birdman.” Like David Gordon Green’s “Our Brand Is Crisis,” it tackles current events from a dark humor angle and that could resonate amid other, deadly serious contenders like “Black Mass” and “The Danish Girl.” The AFI Fest premiere will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Nov. 12.

As one incredulous guy in a suit puts it in the trailer: “Mike Burry, who gets his hair cut at Supercuts and doesn’t wear shoes, knows more than Alan Greenspan?” “Doctor Mike Burry,” replies Mr.
