Sony Pictures UK has sent over the new trailer and poster for Michael Winterbottom’s satire Greed. Starring multiple BAFTA award-winning actor Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge series, Stan & Ollie), Greed will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on Friday, 21st February 2020.

GREED tells the story of self-made British billionaire Sir Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan), whose retail empire is in crisis. For 30 years he has ruled the world of retail fashion – bringing the high street to the catwalk and the catwalk to the high street – but after a damaging public inquiry, his image is tarnished. To save his reputation, he decides to bounce back with a highly publicised and extravagant party celebrating his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. A satire on the grotesque inequality of wealth in the fashion industry, the film sees McCreadie’s rise and fall through the eyes of his biographer, Nick (David Mitchell).

The film features an all-star cast including Isla Fisher (Nocturnal Animals, Wedding Crashers), David Mitchell (Peep Show, Upstart Crow), Asa Butterfield (Sex Education, Journey’s End), Sophie Cookson (Kingsman franchise, Red Joan), Dinita Gohil (The Infiltrator, The Snowman), Jamie Blackley (The Last Kingdom, Traitors), Shanina Shaik (The Mummy), Tim Key (Alan Partridge series, Pls Like), Sarah Solemani (Bridget Jones’s Baby, Him & Her), Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing, Happy New Year, Colin Burstead), Ollie Locke (Made in Chelsea, Plebs), Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who), Jonny Sweet (Johnny English Strikes Again, Loaded), Shirley Henderson (Stan & Ollie, T2 Trainspotting) and Stephen Fry (The Hobbit series, Gosford Park).

The satire is written by Winterbottom and is produced by DJ Films’ Damian Jones (Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, Dad’s Army) and Melissa Parmenter (The Trip series, The Look of Love) for Revolution Films. Sony Pictures International Productions and Film4 backed the project with Daniel Battsek and Ollie Madden serving as executive producers.

GREED will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on Friday, 21st February 2020.
