Recently, we added the first official trailer for Moneyball. Today we have 23 new hi-res photos from Columbia Pictures baseball drama.
Based on Michael Lewis’ bestseller, Moneyball tracks the changing fortunes of Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), manager of the Oakland A’s baseball team. With the club’s finances at an all-time low, Beane struggles to assemble any sort of winning roster, since he can’t afford the best players. But then he gets a little help from young office type Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), who introduces him to a new method for picking possible recruits – a computer analysis program running a system called Sabermetrics, which uses empirical evidence instead of the conventional wisdom.
Naturally, Beane has some issues convincing his bosses and colleagues that his new strategy can work, but then he starts delivering results…
The film is directed by Bennett Miller (Capote). The screenplay is by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin. Additional cast include Robin Wright Penn, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kathryn Morris, Rick Yudt and Stephen Bishop.
Moneyball slides into theaters September 23rd, 2011.
