This movie is a true story adapted from the book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine written by Michael Lewis, who also wrote MoneyBall, The Blindside, Liar’s Poker and Flash Boys.
Because of the content matter in the book, this movie should give a very good glimpse into the reality of the stupidity and greed that a few players took full advantage of by betting against the banks and markets during the 2008 financial crisis.
Essentially the book features a few individuals who took a a few hundred thousand dollars and turned it into over a hundred million betting against the stock.
On the flip side the book features the largest losses in investing history in the multi billions of dollars which sunk into a black hole of unsustainable debt.
We’ll give a full review of the movie when it comes out this Christmas.
