In its pursoot to tell the story of former Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane, the Bennett Miller-directed movie Moneyball will hit theatres in September. The trailer to this movie, based on a real-life story, was just unveiled and features Brad Pitt as its main role. The movie is based on a book called Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.

This movie is a typical Hollywood movie with its “me against the world” main character and its old fashioned non-believers. Will probably be nominated when award season comes around.

Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (ISBN 0-393-05765-8) is a book by Michael M. Lewis, published in 2003, about the Oakland Athletics baseball team and its general manager Billy Beane. Its focus is the team’s modernized, analytical, sabermetric approach to assembling a competitive baseball team, despite Oakland’s disadvantaged revenue situation.
