Ridley Scott releases new posters of 'All the Money in the World' that swaps out Kevin Spacey's name for Christopher Plummer's.
Entertainment Weekly released the two new posters. One poster shows a bloody, ear-shaped $100 bill with a headline below the bottom title that reads, "Everyone wants a cut." This poster is a reference to how the kidnappers of Getty's grandson cut the boy's ear and sent it to his mother. Meanwhile, the other one features Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg's characters navigating themselves into a car, surrounded by camera flash and paparazzi, with the poster's headline that reads, "J. Paul Getty had a fortune. Everyone else paid the price," at the top. Both posters do not feature Getty at all.

The original poster of the film featured a large bust of Spacey as J. Paul Getty shadowing Williams and Wahlberg's characters. "All the Money in the World" was initially scheduled to premiere as AFI Fest's closing night film on November 16. After Spacey's sex scandal news broke out, however, the film was pulled from the fest and replaced by Jessica Chastain-starring "Molly's Game".
The new posters release indicates that director Ridley Scott is serious in meeting the film's December 22 release date. The move is probably fueled by Scott's desire to make his film qualify for next year's Academy Awards.
Previously, Plummer spoke on NBC's "Today" about replacing Spacey as well as his short-time shooting. "They're going to reshoot the whole, that section of the movie," said Plummer while promoting his latest film "The Man Who Invented Christmas". When the Oscar winner was asked about Spacey, the actor responded, "As far as Kevin is concerned, I'm so sorry, because it is sad. It really is, because he's such a gifted, terrific talent."
"All the Money in the World" tells the story of the infamous 1973 kidnapping of Getty's grandson, John Paul Getty III. When elder Getty refuses to pay his grandson's ransom, the teen's mother recruits an ex-CIA negotiator to try and save her son.
