Billionair Boys Club Trailer

Last fall, Kevin Spacey became one of many powerful men in Hollywood to be shunned from the industry due to sexual misconduct. Not only was he suspended from House of Cards, but he was written entirely out of the final season of the show, and several other projects set up at Netflix involving the actor and producer were scrapped entirely. On top of that, he was replaced by Christopher Plummer in the kidnapping thriller All the Money in the World. But it looks like one movie couldn’t ditch Kevin Spacey so easily.

Billionaire Boys Club follows the story of a group of Los Angeles private school boys, including Ansel Elgort and Taron Egerton, who set up a Ponzi scheme (or pyramid scheme) in the 1980s and somehow end up involved with a murder. Kevin Spacey stars as the man who bankrolls the scheme and ends up swindling them, and despite his presence in the movie, the film is still being released this summer. Read More »
