Jessica Chastain in Trailer for 'Molly's Game' Directed by Aaron Sorkin
"Do you know about me?" STX Entertainment has unveiled the first official trailer for Molly's Game, the directorial debut of screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin directs from his own script, based on the true story of Molly Bloom, adapted from her memoir. Jessica Chastain plays Molly Bloom, a young Olympic-class skier from Colorado 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. This also stars Idris Elba, Chris O'Dowd, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Natalie Krill, Joe Keery, Bill Camp, and plenty of others. This seems like an entertaining story for a movie, especially from Sorkin who has likely whipped this up into something special.
