Great Moments In Springsteen Cinema History: Money Monster Trailer



Money Monster, the Wall Street hostage thriller, is hitting theaters this Friday.  While the movie is looking to sell itself with a topical story and high profile actors, it is the song in the trailer that really caught me.  About halfway in, after the characters and plot have been established, we hear the familiar strums of Springsteen's "Devils & Dust".  While "Devils & Dust" isn't frequently discussed among Springsteen fans, I did note in an ancient post that it is one of the few modern protest songs that has held up well.  While originally about the Iraq war, it seems to fit right in with the common man's anger towards the financial sector.

No word as of yet if this is just a song for the trailer, or if it will highlight a particular scene in the movie.  If you see it, let us know!
