NEW YORK (AP) - Hollywood’s awards season has a surprise new entry: “The Big Short.”

Paramount Pictures on Tuesday announced that it will release the Adam McKay-directed adaptation of Michael Lewis’ book in limited release on Dec. 11. A wider release will follow Dec. 23.

The film boasts a star-studded cast of Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. It tells the true story of a handful of people who got rich by betting against banks and predicting the financial crash of 2008.
