Marina Antunes [Celluloid 08.18.10] France movie trailer news drama

The only thing better than Oliver Stone making a movie about Wall Street is having a French dude make a film about trading and casting a very unlikely character to fill the shoes of the bad guy.

In truth, the story for Fabrice Genestal’s Krach feels a tad out of date (though considering the current state of the world economy not exactly out of touch) as though it’s a left over from the late 80s/early 90s but it has one thing none of its predecessors had going for it: Michael Madsen. Yes, Madsen as a big wig on the trading floor of a bank, facing off against the dude he fired for losing truckloads of money. Can you imagine it? I sure as hell can’t but thankfully I don’t have to because the trailer features lots of Madsen at his office job.

What’s best is that there’s a quick scene in this trailer where Madsen really looks like the badass he usually plays. Maybe they’re going for the meta element here? I’m not sure but it’s both amusing and entertaining.

Will it be good? Chances are highly unlikely but I’m willing to put my money with Madsen playing power hungry corporate big wig yelling at his peons. Wonder if he ever pulls out a real gun when he loses his cool?

Trailer after the break.
