The directorial debut from Aaron Sorkin, “Molly’s Game” has a trailer! The film is set to world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“Molly’s Game” is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the life of the ‘Poker Princess’ who set up poker games for the elite portrayed by Chastain. Chastain and Elba are enough for me to go and watch the film along with Kevin Costner, Michael Cera (is he portraying Tobey MacGuire?), Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd and Bill Camp.
“Molly’s Game” will be out in theaters November 22. Will you go watch? Let us know in the comments below!
