Molly’s Game Trailer

Aaron Sorkin‘s Molly’s Game (2017) movie trailer stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Chris O’Dowd, and Michael Cera. Molly’s Game‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Molly Bloom, “MOLLY’S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, 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, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.”

The directorial debut of prolific screenplay writer Aaron Sorkin looks like it is a well-made first outing. The hard tone of the film and the professional look Jessica Chastain has in Molly’s Game reminded me of Chastain’s immensely entertaining recent film Miss Sloane.

I am not a poker aficionado so I had no idea about the underground poker game that Molly Bloom successfully ran for a sustained amount of time. From what is in the trailer, Bloom became a victim of her own success when she eventually attracted the attention of the Russian mob.

Molly’s Game also stars Joe Keery, Rachel Skarsten, Graham Greene, and Brian d’Arcy James.

Molly’s Game was produced Stuart M. Besser, Mark Gordon, Leopoldo Gout, Matt Jackson, Lauren Lohman, Lyn Lucibello, and Amy Pascal.
