When you think of George Clooney, Julia Roberts and money on screen, you thoughts might turn to the Ocean's franchise. But director Jodie Foster is hoping to change that with her new drama Money Monster, and the film has put a new poster out.

Money Monster features Clooney as Lee Gates, a financial TV host who offers up stock advice on his eponymous hit cable TV show in a gregarious style that his audience laps up. Roberts is Nancy Fenn, the director and executive producer of the show, who has to deal with his charismatic but chaotic presenting method every day.

But this particular programme will not herald the start of just another broadcast day: Kyle Budwell (Jack O’Connell), a blue-collar worker sick of the damage still being done by Wall Street, has invaded the studio toting a gun and a bomb. With a growing family to support, he takes Gates hostage on air to increase a stock’s value and expose the corruption behind the stock market, mostly so he can get some answers. That doesn't sit well with Dominic West's Walt Camby, the CEO of the company behind a bad stock call that Gates makes, who tries to minimise the damage to his own career by hiding out in his private jet.

With some real-time drama unfolding, there's suddenly a rush to find the truth and expose it. The poster says "coming soon", but the movie will be out on May 27.
