Still from the movie Equity starring Anna Gunn

Anna Gunn stars in the first trailer for Equity, which is being dubbed She-Wolves of Wall Street. Anna plays plays Naomi Bishop, a senior investment banker for the largest investment bank in the world. Naomi gets passed up for a promotion again, although it's clear she's the top talent in the firm. Determined to soldier on, she works on a new deal and ends up uncovering a shocking scandal.

When Naomi's boss tells her, "This is not your year" you can feel her fury and despair at the obviously made up excuse. Naomi's next project is an IPO for a British tech film called Cachet. But soon it's obvious that someone is gunning for her. Actually more than one person is: Samantha (Alysia Reiner) is a prosecutor who works for the U.S. Attorney's Office is determined to bring down some Wall Street baddies.

Anna Gunn is best known for her work on Breaking Bad. Her performance as the driven Naomi was very well received at Sundance. The film was directed by Meera Menon, who shows us that the women of Wall Street can be just as driven as the men. The concept is hammered home in the trailer when Naomi discusses her motivation: it's all about the money. Take a look:
