All the Money in the World is a 2017 crime thriller film directed by Ridley Scott and written by David Scarpa. Based on John Pearson's 1995 book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty, it depicts the events surrounding the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III and the refusal of his grandfather, the multi-billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, to cooperate with the kidnappers' extortion demands. The film stars Michelle Williams as Getty III's mother, Christopher Plummer as Getty, and Mark Wahlberg as an adviser of the Getty family.
Principal photography began in March 2017 and was completed in August 2017 for a December 8, 2017, release. However, two months before the scheduled premiere, sexual misconduct allegations were made against Kevin Spacey, who originally portrayed Getty. By November, Plummer had replaced Spacey and 22 scenes were reshot within eight days, one month prior to the rearranged release date at Christmas.
All the Money in the World premiered at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on December 18, 2017, followed by a United States theatrical release by TriStar Pictures on December 25, 2017. It received positive reviews, with praise for the performances, and grossed $57 million against a $50 million budget. Plummer received particular acclaim as Getty, earning him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
