In the latest trailer for the upcoming Showtime series “Billions,” U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) plans to handle hedge fund king Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) the way a matador handles a bull.

“A good matador doesn’t kill a fresh bull,” Rhoades says. “You wait until he’s been stuck a few times.” The two are at odds throughout the trailer, as Rhoades is convinced that Axelrod is relying on illegal information to make his fortune in the high-stakes world of New York finance.

Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. The pilot was directed by Neil Burger (“The Illusionist,” “Divergent”), who also serves as an executive producer.

“Billions” premieres on January 17 at 10 p.m./9c.
