John Leguizamo is on the brink of a breakthrough in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip of The Crash.

Set in a future when the U.S. economy is on the brink of another massive financial crisis, the thriller stars Frank Grillo as Guy Clifton, a federally indicted stock trader who is secretly enlisted by the federal government to help thwart a cyber-attack aimed at the stock markets that could permanently cripple the economy. Having only ever been fueled by his love of money, he fully intends to use his insider knowledge of this world catastrophe for personal gain — until he unearths the organization behind the attack and discovers its motives.

In the film, John Leguizamo plays George Diebold, a wheelchair-ridden stroke victim who is also the foremost expert on the stock market’s computer systems. The clip sees Dianna Agron consulting with him about how to find the source of the attack.

Written and directed by Aram Rappaport, the Vertical Entertainment release (out today in select theaters and on demand) also stars Christopher McDonald, Minnie Driver, Maggie Q, AnnaSophia Robb, Mary McCormack, Ed Westwick and Andrew James Allen.

Teen Vogue: AnnaSophia Robb and Stefania Owen Reunite

If you wish The Carrie Diaries would come back to television, you’re definitely not alone. The prequel to Sex and the City starred AnnaSophia Robb as the ~infamous~ Carrie Bradshaw, and while it only ran for two seasons, it definitely succeeded in stealing our nostalgic hearts.

While an official Carrie Diaries reunion might not be in the cards, we can still relive the on-screen magic between AnnaSophia and her TV sister, Stefania Owen. Stefania played Dorrit Bradshaw, Carrie’s rebellious little sister, much to the delight of SATC fans who always wondered if Carrie had a family of her own. It turns out that Stefania and AnnaSophia are still friends – and that they’ve actually known each other since they were 7 years old.

The two girls took to Instagram yesterday to show off an adorable selfie as they rang in 2017 together. “What a way to begin the year,” Stefania wrote, adding in a couple of cute emojis. “together again!!!!”

What a way to begin the year 👱🏼‍♀️👩🏻 together again!!!! 💕❤️
