Moneyball looks like a very "inside-baseball" movie ... about baseball. Even getting to see Jonah Hill doing serious acting and Brad Pitt ... well, just being Brad Pitt, wasn't enough to keep this debut trailer very compelling. I'm guessing that a hardcore baseball fan might disagree, though, and those are the people who should be first in line for this movie.
Then again, David Fincher turned the Facebook story into a compelling drama. Can Bennett Miller, the director of Capote, do the same with Moneyball? He's certainly no stranger to the biopic, and he's got a great cast supporting his efforts. We'll find out for ourselves on Sept. 23.
