Monopoly Official Trailer  - Press Coverage
Project directed by Matthew Stubstad for Half Day Today!


My interview with CNN about directing the Monopoly Movie Trailer. 



“Our goal was to get a trailer out before the studio [released] theirs,” director Matthew Stubstad said. “We wanted to make fun of how Hollywood is kind of grabbing anything they can to make a movie out of it.” ... The concept for the trailer, which was written by Gabi Conti, “started off simple,” Stubstad said. “But it ended up being a sort of ‘Tron,’ ‘Jumanji,’ ‘Wall Street’ and ‘Inception’ hybrid… hodgepodge.” ... So what’s the point?“The point is I’m being interviewed by CNN right now,” Stubstad said with a laugh. “The game has kind of changed for directors, I feel. We kind of need these blockbuster viral videos to get noticed.”

And if Scott needs a hand producing the real thing, Stubstad says the members of Half Day Today are available. References upon request. "

Badass Digest ( - Article / Review

BADASS Digest had a nice write up about the trailer.


"Matthew Stubstad sent me a link to his excellent fake trailer for a Monopoly movie. Stubstad seems to really get what makes a trailer feel real, and you can easily believe there is an entire movie of this waiting to be seen. I like that – too many fake movie trailers just feel like sketches slammed into trailer form."
