In The Hummingbird Project (out March 15), Jesse Eisenberg and (a balding) Alexander Skarsgård play Vincent and Anton, cousins from New York, and players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.
The Hummingbird Project is written and directed by Kim Nguyen and costars Michael Mando.
