Gaming Wall Street: HBO Max’s GameStop Stock Documentary Releases Mar 3

HBO Max dropped a trailer for Gaming Wall Street, a documentary about the GameStop stock drama that captured headlines last year.

Basically, for anyone who missed out on the cultural flashpoint, a group of Redditors decided to use their sheer numbers to stop an investment firm from bankrupting the video game retailer.

Check out the trailer below:

The online community actually may have saved GameStop and triggered financial reform as a result. The trailer is summarized at the end by saying the story is about…

…how a group of armchair investors and online vigilantes ultimately helped expose the dark underbelly of Wall Street.

It was a major news story as other members of WallStreetBets on Reddit banded together to try and prop up a number of companies that were in danger of going under.

Now, one of the strangest stories in recent memory gets the big explainer treatment.

I wanted to create a compelling documentary about a niche online community which grew into the movement behind GameStop and momentarily shifted the balance of power on Wall Street. I saw a great need for access to education about investing.

We have the opportunity to right a decades-old wrong created by powerful firms that have been gaming the system to the detriment of society. I hope that viewers will feel empowered to see themselves as investors and be part of a much-needed reform to Wall Street.

Tobias Deml, Director

Gaming Wall Street peels back the layers of one of the most talked about news stories in 2021, revealing the systemic issues and underbelly of the financial world. It’s an honour to have this series live on HBO Max.

Succession star Kieran Culkin narrates the series based on one of the biggest events of last year, despite continued fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The documentary was reportedly created because Deml wished to educate others on investing, while also paying homage to the David-and-Goliath-inspired stock battle and its leaders.

The series marks the most recent project focused on the stock phenomenon, following the positive release of Jonah Tulis’ documentary film, GameStop: Rise of the Players.

Gaming Wall Street debuts on HBO Max on March 3. Till then, check out the trailer.
