Billions trailer sees Paul Giamatti face off against Damien Lewis

The first trailer has appeared online for Showtime’s new drama series Billions, in which Damien Lewis and Paul Giamatti go head to head as a crooked hedge fund kingpin and US Attorney respectively…

The two men will engage in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, as Giamatti attempts to prove that Lewis’ fortune has been accrued through non-legal means. Cue much snarled posturing as the two men set about dispensing macho one-liners to anyone who’ll listen!

Check out the new trailer, below…

While some of the dialogue sounds a little clunky in places (“what’s the point in having fuck you money if you never say ‘fuck you’”), Giamatti and Lewis are as engaging as you’d expect, and there’s a scuzzy glossiness to this one that has us drawn in. Co-starring Malin Akerman and Maggie Siff, Billions will debut on January 17 2016.
