Trailer Alert – Molly’s Game
If I told you an Olympic-class skier 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 would you believe me? What if I added in that her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob? Seems far fetched, right? Well luckily for movie fans, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. Molly’s Game, which will serve as the directorial debut of Aaron Sorkin (who also wrote the movie based on the book of the same name) stars Jessica Chastain as Molly Bloom, the aforementioned Olympic skier turned poker queen. This movie looks like a whole hell of a lot of fun, and stars Idris Elba, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd & Kevin Costner. Save the date, as Molly’s Game premiers November 22nd.
