The first trailer and poster for the thriller Arbitrage have gone online. Richard Gere stars as a troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire who makes a bloody error that forces him to scramble for help. The cast, anchored by Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and rising star Brit Marling, is impressive and Arbitrage looks to be a fairly engrossing thriller. It’s obvious that there are two stories trying to be told at the same time, and I’m hoping the more intriguing character-centered one takes front and center. Matt noted this dichotomy in his review from Sundance, but I’m still quite eager to check the full film out once it hits theaters.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out the poster. Directed by Nicholas Jarecki, the film also stars Laetitia Casta and Nate Parker. Arbitrage opens on September 14th.
