ABSTRACT: Gilles Deleuze, in Cinema 1: The Movement-Image, defines some aspects of the movement-image in terms derived from Marx's formulae for capitalist exchange. The large form of the action-image - SAS´ - corresponds to Marx's C-M-C formula of commodity exchange, while the small form of the action-image - ASA´ -  corresponds to monetary exchange, M-C-M.
In this paper, I denote the form of capital exchange appropriate to the age of finance capital, the age Deleuze referred to as one of 'control societies', in order to posit correspondences between these forms of finance capital and some narrative aspects post-classical Hollywood cinema. In doing so, I examine a range of recent Hollywood films, including Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (Brad Bird, 2011) and Man of Steel (Zack Snyder, 2013).
