In the mid-2000s, the financial sector in the U.S. was seeing unsubstantiated growth and Wall Street was booming. By 2008, those financial institutions were at the point of collapse after years of deregulation, subprime mortgages and predatory lending, threatening a global economic meltdown unlike anything seen before.

Too Big to Fail brings to life the story of Treasury Secretary Henry “Hank” Paulson (William Hurt) as he works with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (Paul Giamatti) and Federal Reserve Bank of New York President Timothy Geithner (Billy Crudup), along with the staff at the Fed, members of Congress, and the world's richest CEOs, to bring the U.S. and the world's economy back from the brink of collapse.

In addition to Hurt, Giamatti and Crudup, the film stars, Ed Asner, Topher Grace, Matthew Modine, Cynthia Nixon, Michael O'Keefe, Bill Pullman, Tony Shalhoub and James Woods.

Premieres Monday, May 23 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO and HBO Canada
