Ridley Scott is a cinematic master when it comes to directing epic narratives (Blade Runner, Alien, Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven), so it comes as no surprise that replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in All the Money in the World was a seamless transition. Scott’s impressive feat, however, was to cut Spacey’s scenes as John Paul Getty, reshoot them with the revered Plummer, and also have this film ready by its December 22nd release date!! Scott, who celebrates his 80th birthday today, also released Alien: Covenant earlier this year (he also executive produced Blade Runner 2049)!!
The new trailer for the movie, which deals with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) is below. Michelle Williams co-stars as Getty III’s understandably distraught mother and Mark Wahlberg is the man tasked by Getty at handling the situation.
Check out the trailer, which features the new scenes with Plummer, and tell us what you think!
