Futures Past movie trailer

The movie trailer for Futures Past has just been released and it looks to be full of great trading floor footage of the CME at both the legacy Merc trading floor and the subsequent CBOT bond room which housed the combined exchange starting in 2008.  It appears to have a dual focus on the automation of futures trading along with the relationship of industry titan Leo Melamed and his son, who is also the film’s director.  Over the next couple weeks, the film is being screened a few times at the Chicago Film Festival and you can see the schedule listed for that here.  Details on further distribution don’t appear to be available at the moment but hopefully I can be back in Chicago to take in one screening while it’s on the big screen.
