Jodie Foster directs the real-time thriller.

The Money Monster trailer sees George Clooney as Lee Gates, the Wall Street newsman who gets held hostage onscreen by an irate investor (Unbroken's Jack O'Connell) after one of his tips turns out badly.

The film, directed by Jodie Foster, unfolds in real time as Gates and his producer, played by Julia Roberts, have to figure out how to deal with their captor and Wall Street's lies.

"I might be the one with a gun here, but I am not the criminal," explains O'Connell's character.

Money Monster hits theaters on May 13.
