The inspirational story based on Michael Lewis' best-selling book, Moneyball, slides home on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 19th March 2012 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The critically acclaimed film stars two-time Academy Award® nominee Brad Pitt (2008, Best Actor, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 1996, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Twelve Monkeys) in an outstanding performance as Oakland A's General Manager, Billy Beane. On the roster with Pitt are Jonah Hill (Get Him to the Greek), Academy Award® winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (2005, Best Actor, Capote) and Golden Globe® nominee Robin Wright (1994, Best Actress, Forrest Gump).
Moneyball also features an all-star lineup of filmmakers. Academy Award® winners Steven Zaillian (1993, Best Adapted Screenplay, Schindler's List) and Aaron Sorkin (2010, Best Adapted Screenplay, The Social Network) wrote the screenplay. The film was directed by Academy Award®nominee Bennett Miller (2005, Best Director, Capote), produced by Michael DeLuca (The Social Network), Rachael Horovitz (About Schmidt) and Brad Pitt; and executive produced by Scott Rudin, Andrew Karsch (Conviction), Sidney Kimmel (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Mark Bakshi (Rango).
Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) challenges the system and defies conventional wisdom when he is forced to rebuild his small-market team on a limited budget. Despite opposition from the old guard, the media, fans and their own field manager (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Beane - with the help of a young, number crunching, Yale-educated economist (Jonah Hill) - develops a roster of misfits and changes the way the game is played forever.
