The fall movie season is here, which means we’ve got some really great films to look forward to. One such flick is Bennett Miller’s Moneyball. Based on the non-fiction book of the same name, the film tells the story of how Billy Beane looked to change the way baseball teams are created by using statistics instead of salaries to judge players. Brad Pitt stars as Beane, with a stellar supporting cast that includes Jonah Hill, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright. Steve saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival and said it’s fantastic.
Hit the jump to watch the clips and look for video interviews with the cast next week. Moneyball opens September 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Based on a true story, Moneyball stars Brad Pitt as Billy Beane, the general manager of the Oakland As and the guy who assembles the team, who has an epiphany: all of baseball‟s conventional wisdom is wrong. Forced to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane will have to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. It’s more than baseball, it’s a revolution – one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he’s tearing out the heart and soul of the game.
