Watch: 'All In - The Poker Movie' Doc Trailer Featuring Matt Damon
"Hollywood can't write a script like that!" 4th Row Films debuted a trailer via Apple for the long-awaited documentary All In - The Poker Movie, chronicling the reason rise of the poker craze in America. This premiered at CineVegas way back in 2009, but is just now getting released in March of 2012. Yes, it features the likes of Matt Damon (who helped spur on the craze with Rounders) as well as numerous poker stars. But it presents a rather intriguing look at the rise of this "sport", and what makes it such an obsession for so many people. I love poker myself, and this looks quite fascinating, I'd really love to see what they uncover.
Watch the official trailer for Douglas Tirola's All In - The Poker Movie, in high def from Apple:
All In - The Poker Movie, tells the story of poker focusing on why one of our nations oldest games has had a renaissance in the past few years and why for so many poker is the way to chase the American Dream. Directed by Douglas Tirola (A Reason to Believe), the documentary tells the story of the poker boom that started in the underground clubs of NYC and went on to be played on line, in casinos and at home games around the world until the US Government shut down the three largest poker websites in the world. The definitive story of the rise, fall and rebirth of poker. Sounds good to me. 4th Row Films is releasing All In in theaters starting March 23rd this spring.

This may now be a comedy due to what Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson have been rightly accused of with the "Ponzi scheme" of Full Tilt.

As a poker player that got into it very early in the boom, this looks interesting. If this premiered in 2009, they must've done considerable work on it since then since the online poker shut down and indictments they speak of happened less than a year ago. Not sure I'll learn much more than I already know as this looks more geared towards the neophyte but I'm looking forward to it. With that said, could they have picked a more boring title?
