Bill Ackman Vs. Herbalife Documentary Opens in Theaters March 17

- By Holly LaFon

The Wall Street movie documenting Bill Ackman (Trades, Portfolio)'s crusade against multi-level marketing company Herbalife (HLF) and Carl Icahn (Trades, Portfolio)'s opposing position has been making its way around film festivals and opens in theaters Friday, March 17.

Writer and director Ted Braun explores whether or not Herbalife is a pyramid scheme exploiting its members and not delivering the income it promises them as Ackman has said. Ackman, the manager of hedge fund Pershing Square, has spent considerable effort to expose the company, but also stands to make billions if it fails.

The film, "Betting on Zero," goes behind the scenes with Ackman and looks at the company and its operations up close to give more in-depth picture of what most people have been reading in headlines.

The trailer is below, followed by opening dates and cities.
