It's not everyday you get a cast like this.

Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Christian Bale on set together is one thing, having Adam McKay's sitting in the director's chair just tips it over the edge for us.

McKay's 'The Big Short' is based on the 2010 booked of the same name, and is centered around the group of men who bet against the banks during the global financial crisis in 2007. Yep, the guys who made money from the bubble bursting. 

The trailer looks great, as they all do these days, but it's already got us excited for a film that from it's synopsis would usually put us to sleep. It's McKay's first dramatic work, with most of his career spent directing hit comedies like Anchorman and and Step Brothers, so we're interested to see the transition. Our guess is that it'll be seamless.
