Michelle Williams is desperate to save her kidnapped child in chilling full-length trailer for All The Money In The World... but formidable Christopher Plummer won't give over the ransom

A teaser for the much-anticipated Ridley Scott thriller All The Money In The World was released earlier this week; and now a new, full-length trailer has emerged, giving a more detailed look at Michelle Williams in the role of Gail Harris, the desperate mother trying to save her son from violent kidnappers.

While the trailer sees Williams team up with Fletcher Chase, a former CIA operative [Mark Wahlberg] to put herself in danger to get her son back, the boy's grandfather J. Paul Getty is less obliging - despite being 'the richest man in history'.

Getty is played by Christopher Plummer who was drafted into the movie as a last-minute replacement for Kevin Spacey, who originally portrayed the oil tycoon.

Director Scott chose the 87-year-old Canadian actor to take on the role earlier this month after several claims of sexual misconduct and assaults emerged against Spacey, 58.

The new, longer trailer, follows Gail as she receives a phone call threatening to cut off parts of her son, J. Paul Getty III's body unless she pays them a ransom.

'$17m or we take out his eye, his ear, his hand. And don't tell me you don't have the money,' the kidnappers hiss to her down the phone.

'My child is a prisoner!' she says to Fletcher, as she recruits him to help her find her kidnapped son.

'My former father-in-law only pays for the best,' she says to him. 'Let's hope you're half as good as everything else he's bought!'

Fletcher is then seen telling Getty to pay the ransom, but he insists he 'does not have the money to spare'.

'What would it take for you to feel secure?' Fletcher asks him.

'More!' declares Getty.

Getty clearly does hire Fletcher as he is later heard scolding him: ''I hired you to do things that other people can't or won't do!'

Gail is also seen taking a tapped phone call to her son before joining Fletcher in actively trying to find him.

'He's my son - I can't walk away!' she declares before she seizes up a phone and says 'tell him I'm coming' - before being seen running through streets, prizing her way through doors and tackling a burning building.

The reshoots, taking place in London and Rome, reportedly cost around $10 million on top of the movie's original $40 million budget

The movie was pretty much wrapped, the principal photography having concluded in August, when Scott made the decision to reshoot the scenes that featured Spacey - just six weeks before the big-budget movie's release date.

The reshoots, taking place in London and Rome, reportedly cost around $10 million on top of the movie's original $40 million budget.

Some scenes were still being re-filmed this week as Plummer was pictured on set in Tivoli, Italy on Monday, with production scheduled to be completed by Wednesday.

Plummer is three decades older than Spacey so didn't need the extensive facial prosthetics that Spacey did in the original scenes.

Asked if he contacted the disgraced House of Cards star, Scott told Entertainment Weekly : 'No. And he didn't call me. If he had called me and said, "Hey, look, this is the way it is and I'm really sorry," then I'd have handled it slightly differently. I'd have still done it [replaced him]. I would have said, "Yes, thank you for calling, but I have to move on."'

Scott was working on the music for the movie - which is still slated for release on December 22 - when he heard the first allegations, that Spacey had made a sexual advance to Anthony Rapp when Rapp was just 14.

Since then more than a dozen other men have alleged similar sexual misconduct or assault against the American Beauty Oscar-winner.

Speaking about where he was when he heard about the allegations, Scott added: 'I was finished with the film and was in Abbey Road [recording studio] finalising the music. Someone was like "Guess what?" And that's where it began.

'My former father-in-law only pays for the best,' she says to him. 'Let's hope you're half as good as everything else he's bought!'

'I sat and thought about it and realised, we cannot. You can't tolerate any kind of behaviour like that. And it will affect the film. We cannot let one person's action affect the good work of all these other people. It's that simple.'

And the British-born director thinks it is 'miraculous' that he managed to get everyone back - including Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams - to London and Rome for the reshoots.

He told EW: 'You have to know who you're going to go for [to recast the role] and if he's available. Chris [Plummer] was always on the list. So you find that out, but quietly, because you don't want it going around.

'I flew into New York and met with [Plummer] and he said yes. So then we had to figure out if everyone else would be available to fit in these new days of shooting.

'Miraculously, they were. Before you can make the decision you have to make these quick phone calls around - not to the actors directly, but to the agents - saying there's a possibility I may need some pickups [additional shooting days]. You don't say why because of the gossip, but of course it was really for something much more significant.'

'You can't tolerate any kind of behaviour like that': Director Ridley Scott revealed this week that he never told Spacey (pictured in 2015) he was fired and added that the actor never called him to discuss the situation.

It was claimed by The Hollywood Reporter that Plummer was the original choice for the role but studio executives wanted a bigger name, which is why Spacey came on board.?
