Kevin Spacey has transformed into J. Paul Getty in the first trailer for All the Money in the World.

Ridley Scott directs the rescue thriller based on the infamous 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, then 16 years old and living in Rome. The mobsters demanded $17 million for his return, but the senior Getty, famous for his penny-pinching ways, refused. The boy's ear then arrived at a newspaper office, and J. Paul Getty then negotiated and finally paid $2.2 million.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are also featured in the TriStar/Imperative Entertainment title.

All the Money in the World hits theaters on Dec. 8.
