Director Adam McKay’s much anticipated feature film “The Big Short” is one of the last remaining question marks this awards season, and Paramount Pictures is offering up a new look at the star-studded film with a behind-the-scenes featurette.

The clip includes interviews with McKay, who is making an ambitious jump to dramatic filmmaking after a career in comedy, and cast members Steve Carell, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. According to the featurette, the cast loved making this film with McKay and have much respect for his directing methods. 

The official synopsis for “The Big Short” reads: “When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.”

“The Big Short” premieres tonight at AFI FEST 2015 and will be released in theaters December 23. Watch the featurette above.
