Watch Anna Gunn Wade Through A Web Of Corruption In Latest Equity Trailer

Pegged for release at the tail-end of July, Sony Pictures has premiered a brooding new trailer for Equity, the financial drama headed up by former Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn.

Cut from the same cloth as Adam McKay’s Oscar-winning The Big Short, the rather excellent Margin Call and 99 Homes, Equity is set against the ruthless world of high-stakes banking, where Gunn’s head honcho Naomi Bishop navigates a world of double-crossing and corruption.

For a subgenre that has traditionally revolved around male characters thrust into a shady web of politics and deceit, at the very least, Equity looks set to offer up a breath of fresh air for financial dramas, and after nabbing multiple awards for her glowering turn as Walter White’s significant other, Anna Gunn certainly makes for a compelling and cutthroat Wall Street banker. Meera Menon directs the thriller, and here’s an overview of what to expect:

Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop’s (Anna Gunn) world of high-power big money is brutal and fierce, and one she thrives in. When a controversial IPO threatens the fragile balance of power and confidentiality, Naomi finds herself entangled in a web of politics and deception. With an aggressive prosecutor (Alysia Reiner) from her past on her heels, and a strained relationship with her junior, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas), Naomi is forced to reexamine her own ambitions and the cutthroat world she loves — one where women have yet to break the glass ceiling.

Also starring James Purefoy, Sarah Megan Thomas and Alysia Reiner, Equity is expected to open in theaters on July 29.
