All the Money in the World (2017)
Directed by: Ridley Scott
ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal.

Female Deaths Edit
- After Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer, director Ridley Scott decided not to show Plummer any footage of Spacey in character, or even tell him how Spacey played the scenes. When finished, Scott found both performances to be quite different and equally effective in their own particular styles.
- Christopher Plummer claimed he was prepared to replace Kevin Spacey as J. Paul Getty on short notice because he had previously been considered for the role and had read the script. He had less than two weeks to memorize his lines, but did have the advantage of having met Getty in London at a couple of his parties during the 60s.
- Michelle Williams said that she would have felt unable to promote the film if Kevin Spacey had stayed in it because she felt so much affinity for the people that he had hurt.
- Mark Wahlberg had lost thirty pounds for his next film when he was asked to come back for re-shoots. His costumes had to be refitted.
- Alongside Alien: Covenant (2017), this film marks the second time Ridley Scott has directed two films released in a single year. The first time was in 2001, when Scott's films Hannibal (2001) and Black Hawk Down (2001) were released.
