Paramount will try to follow the success it had with Wolf of Wall Street by taking on the star-studded flick, The Big Short, a film that's also about Wall Street greed. Will it connect in the same way? We take a closer look.

The Big Short
(Paramount)

PROS:

- The film boasts one of the best ensembles of the year: Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Steve Carrell, etc.
- Director Adam McKay (Step Brothers, The Other Guys) has had more than his share of commercial hits.
- The source novel by Michael Lewis has a sizable following.

CONS:

- The end of the year is already crowded and this was a later entry.
- If Joy and Concussion break out, they could overshadow The Big Short
