The trailer for the upcoming Brad Pitt / Jonah Hill film, Moneyball, is now over at Yahoo! Movies. The film is directed by Bennett Miller (Capote) and is based on the book of the same name by Michael M. Lewis that tells the story of Oakland Athletics GM Billy Beane. Beane took over the front office for the A’s in 1998 and used sabermetric techniques to keep the team competitive after his payroll was slashed. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Chris Pratt also star.
A certain bearded webmaster / baseball nut could probably tell you what Beane had for breakfast today. But as he’s not available, I go by what I see in the trailer, which looks pretty good.
Moneyball is in theatres on September 23rd.
