    Default Trailer for the new movie "Moneyball" starring Brad Pitt.

    http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=78706

    Looks pretty good. It has the same screen writer as the one from The Social Network.

    Pitt's movie choices have got a lot better since 2005.

    I read the book - hard to picture it as a movie.

    Written by Aaron Sorkin of film (A Few Good Men, Malice, American President, Charlie Wilson's War, Social Network) and TV (Sports Night, The West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) fame.

    Should be good.

    ah, so in the end, the inability of the Oakland Athletics to win the World Series will be blamed on the republicans!

    The first film that comes to mind for you when you think of Aaron Sorkin is The Social Network?

    I wonder if they'll cover the topic that the A's never won anything of note and have the worst roster in the AL right now. Maybe they'll touch on how every move Billy Beane has made in the last 7 years has been terrible.

    That might put a damper on his little premature, self-congratulatory book/movie, though.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I read the book (loved it) and was excited when I heard they were making a movie. I gotta say, though, what I see in the trailer is nowhere what I was expecting as a movie. The baseball scenes don't look authentic at all.
    Hopefully Sorkin's writing more than makes up for it.

    I'll still go see it. One of the few movies I was excited about this year.
