The official trailer for George Clooney‘s newest film “Money Monster” was released this week, giving audiences a dose of what to expect from the flick.

The movie follows Lee Gates, the host of a daytime money talk show that appears to be similar to Jim Cramer‘s real-life show “Mad Money.”

All seems to be going smoothly for Gates until a stranger named Kyle Budwell makes his way onto the set and fires off a round from his gun. Budwell immediately takes over the set and holds Gates hostage after losing all of his money in a system he calls “rigged.”

Starring in the picture are Oscar-winners George Clooney and Julia Roberts, as well as Jack O’Connell, Giancarlo Espositio and Dominic West.

The movie will be directed by Jodie Foster and was written by Jamie Linden, Alan Di Fiore and Jim Kouf.

Money Monster hits theaters May 13th.
