George Clooney stars in Money Monster' clip

Posted on

In the upcoming thriller Money Monster, George Clooney stars as a TV stock whiz named Lee Gates, who’s used to using his slick charm to effortlessly navigate the perils of live TV. But when a rogue gunman named Kyle (Unbroken’s Jack O’Connell) storms his studio, claiming a bad stock tip from Gates cost him his life savings, he straps Gates into a suicide vest, and it’s up to Gates and his producer, Patty (Julia Roberts), to simultaneously investigate what went wrong with Kyle’s investment and negotiate their own survival.

In this exclusive clip from the film, the NYPD decides to take matters into their own hands and disable the bomb — by taking a shot at Gates.

Money Monster is Jodie Foster’s fourth outing as director and her first collaboration with Clooney and Roberts. Dominic West, Giancarlo Esposito, and Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe also star.

Money Monster hits theaters on May 13.
