You know Ridley Scott. You love Ridley Scott. He's the badass filmmaker who made some of your favorite movies, like The Martian, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and so, so, so many more awesome films.
Ridley's newest film, All The Money In The World, is inspired by the true story of J. Paul Getty, an oil mogul billionaire who was, at one time, the wealthiest person on the entire freakin' planet.
In 1973, Getty's grandson was kidnapped and held for ransom...and J. Paul Getty, like the notoriously ruthless and frugal businessman he was, refused to pay the ransom!
Getty claimed to have good reasons for not paying his grandson's kidnappers, and you'll have to see the movie to find out if you agree with him or not.
But the story behind this movie is almost as incredible as the film itself! Due to some last-minute casting changes, Ridley had to reshoot a significant portion of the film in just nine days. NINE DAYS!
Christopher Plummer, who is 88 years old, was recast in the role of J. Paul Getty, flew halfway across the world, shot his scenes in nine days, flew back, and brought a cake to the motherfuckin' press junket.
Oh, and also: Mark Wahlberg is in the movie, so it's got that going for it, too.
