The Redditors vs. The Wall Street battle documentary is coming soon. Super LTD surprised the audience with a trailer of GameStop: Rise of the Players precisely a year after the fiasco.
In January 2021, the world saw the incredible power of Redditors as a group overthrew Wall Street’s investing community on r/WallStreetBets.
GameStop: Rise of the Players shows the people behind the Reddit usernames and how they overturned the continuous fall of GameStop’s stocks. The battle became the most prominent news in 2021 and was labeled the David vs. Goliath tale.
In quick montages, we see the prices rapidly increasing, the stock market exploding, the world making memes on “squeeze” and Keith Gill aka Roaring Kitty an investor on the r/WallStreetBets.
Check out the trailer below:
The ordinary group of Redditors assembled when they saw the Wall Street investors bet on GameStop’s stocks to fail. With their passion for numbers, several like-minded people united and exploded GameStop’s value, leading to multiple losses of several hedge funds.
The GameStop stock controversy shattered the illusion of Wall Street investors being champions at the game of numbers. As the world grappled with a new normal at the start of 2021, a group of netizens taught the world that one could shake up an entire industry (and the world) just by sitting at home.
GameStop: Rise of the Players aims to show the world a non-dramatic angle of what actually went down—both in the stock market and in the mind of the people who were the most impacted by the shift.
Reportedly, MGM Studios and Netflix have decided to make their own feature films on the controversy, both of which are currently in their initial stages.
Meanwhile, GameStop: Rise of the Players will be released exclusively in theaters on January 28, 2022.
