The new footage is being released just nine days after director Ridley Scott started re-shooting Spacey’s scenes with Plummer. Sony is sticking with its planned Dec. 22 release date.
“All the Money in the World” is the story of the 1973 kidnap in Italy of John Paul Getty III — the rebellious teenage grandson of oil billionaire John Paul Getty, who was reluctant to pay the $17 million ransom demanded by the kidnappers.
The trailer includes several shots of Plummer, who’s asked at one point what he could possibly still want. The one-word answer is “More.”
Michelle Williams plays the part of Gail Harris, the mother of John Paul Getty III, and Mark Wahlberg plays Getty’s adviser.
The kidnappers sent a lock of hair and the teen’s severed right ear to the family to convince them pay the ransom. Harris and the boy’s father eventually convinced the elder Getty to pay a $2.9 million ransom, resulting in the teenager being freed after six months. He had been chained to a stake in a cave in Italy.
