Steve Coogan stars in the upcoming Greed – and here’s the new trailer.
The latest film to bring together the talents of star Steve Coogan and director Michael Winterbottom is Greed.
In the movie, Coogan is definitely not playing the billionaire Sir Philip Green. No, he’s playing Sir Richard McCreadle, a retail billionaire whose business is facing sizeable problems.
Winterbottom has penned the script for this one, along with Sean Gray. Co-starring are Isla Fisher, Sophie Cookson, Stephen Fry, David Mitchell and Asa Butterfield. And here’s the new trailer for the film…
The synopsis reads as follows…
GREED tells the story of self-made British billionaire Sir Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan), whose retail empire is in crisis. For 30 years he has ruled the world of retail fashion – bringing the high street to the catwalk and the catwalk to the high street – but after a damaging public inquiry, his image is tarnished. To save his reputation, he decides to bounce back with a highly publicised and extravagant party celebrating his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. A satire on the grotesque inequality of wealth in the fashion industry, the film sees McCreadie’s rise and fall through the eyes of his biographer, Nick (David Mitchell).
The film is in cinemas on February 21st.
