An embarrassment of riches.  Here's the new international trailer for Trumbo, starring Bryan Cranston.  I'm about 1 minute in.  An amazing chance to meet and work with one of my idols.  



I made the trailer for The Big Short.  If you haven't read this book by Michael Lewis I highly recommend it.  Incredible story of the Mortgage bond market and the collapse of the housing market that followed.
