Fat, Balding Matthew McConaughey Strikes It Rich in Red-Band ‘Gold’ Trailer

Looks like Surfer, Dude has some competition for “film most likely to be confused with the 2008 Matthew McConaughey romantic-comedy Fool’s Gold.” It’s Gold, a movie that sees a pudgy, balding, snaggletoothed McConaughey striking it rich with an Indonesian gold mine, then trying to keep his newfound wealth out of the pockets of Wall Street. The picture is loosely based on the true story of the Bre-X mining scandal, and depending on just how loosely it takes it, there may or may not be another twist to the tale. (Spoiler alert: the mine is a fraud!) Bryce Dallas Howard, Edgar Ramírez, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood, Stacy Keach, Craig T. “Coach” Nelson, and what’s likely an overweight butt double co-star. You can judge the tush authenticity on the big screen January 27.
