We've been discussing this movie because of the fact that director Ridley Scott, in a race against time worthy of its own movie (at least a documentary) rushed to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer after Spacey had been accused of multiple incidents of sexual misconduct.

Paul Getty III, grandson of the patriarch J. Paul Getty Sr., is named Charlie Plummer, who is not related to Christopher). Here is the trailer:
