Billy Beane says he will be at the premiere, though Sony Pictures will not confirm if Brad Pitt, who plays Beane in the movie, will be there.
The movie follows Beane's use of a certain form of statistics -- made prevalent by seamhead and statistician Bill James -- to draft players. He began implementing the system in 2002. Since then the A's have made the playoffs twice, in 2003 and 2006.
They have never won a World Series using Beane's adopted system.
