Molly's Game Trailer

"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.

Here's the first official trailer for Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game, direct from STX's YouTube:

Molly's Game Movie

The true story of an Olympic-class skier named Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target.

    Damn that was the whole movie lol. Looks like an alright directed movie for his first time though.

    One of those films you'll watch for the cast in it. And nothing else to it...
    China's attempt at an Oscar. Should be quite good.
  • I like Aaron Sorkin as a writer, and it will be interesting to see how he does as a director. Cast is fantastic, story seems intriguing, but not something I'll rush out to see in a theater...

      Same here, Raw, regarding Sorkin. I went to the library got the book when I heard the material was going to be his first directorial effort. I wasn't impressed with the material or the woman, Molly, and her story of wanting to make it by putting on big, Hollywood and East Coast poker games. I also couldn't figure out what Sorkin's take on it and her was going to be or why he wanted to do this material. Also, much of the book is filled with big named actors like Leo DeCapprio and the spider man guy, is it Toby McQuire?...who in the book is a real dick and betrays and messes with the Molly character in distasteful ways. I wondered how they were going to portray these big named actors as they are a huge part of the story and her success in getting them to her games. I too won't be rushing out to see it. Also, I've lost interest in Chastain for various reasons and did not like her in this trailer. Cheers, bud.

    Damn, I can't believe Aaron Sorkin never actually directed a movie before. That's kinda crazy considering all the famous screenplays he's written. Film also looks pretty decent too.

    Michael Cera needs a haircut
  • Yep. Looks overly slick ('Sorkined'). But what is up with these mini-trailers right in front of the trailers? What purpose do they serve?
    • foreigncontaminant
      +1 for Sorkined. And I absolutely HATE those mini-trailers at the start. Studios think audiences have such short attention spans now, that even trailers need their own trailers? Awful.
