HBO has released a trailer for its upcoming documentary Gaming Wall Street, which is about the whole crazy GameStop stock debacle. I know a few people that made a lot of money off of that whole thing, I was not one of them.
Narrated by Kieran Culkin (Succession), “this HBO documentary explores the historic 2021 short squeeze of GameStop, and how a group of armchair investors and online vigilantes ultimately helped expose the dark underbelly of Wall Street. Gaming Wall St peels back the layers of one of the most talked about news stories in 2021, revealing the systemic issues and underbelly of the financial world.”
The doc was directed by Tobias Deml, who said in a statement: “I wanted to create a compelling documentary about a niche online community which grew into the movement behind GameStop and momentarily shifted the balance of power on Wall Street. I saw a great need for access to education about investing. We have the opportunity to right a decades-old wrong created by powerful firms that have been gaming the system to the detriment of society. I hope that viewers will feel empowered to see themselves as investors and be part of a much-needed reform.”
Gaming Wall Street is a two-part doc film and it will debut on HBO Max on March 3rd, 2022. This should be an interesting doc to watch.
