STFfilms has released the first Molly’s Game trailer which is the directorial debut of Oscar-winning The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin wrote the script for Molly’s Game himself and the true story drama stars Jessica Chastain as Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for more than a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by gun-wielding FBI agents. Bloom wrote a tell-all book about her exploits called Molly’s Game, but in this trailer we clearly see Idris Elba‘s character holding a copy, which means Sorkin isn’t doing a straight adaptation here—he’s mining various aspects of Molly’s life for one intense story that seems to chronicle the before, during, and after of Molly’s poker days. This is a great trailer that really highlights Sorkin’s signature dialogue, and visually it looks like Sorkin learned the most from director David Fincher. Indeed, Sorkin was actually in line to make The Social Network his directorial debut if Fincher passed, and as you see on the Social Network “making of” documentary, Fincher actually left the set on the last day so he could let Sorkin direct a scene himself. Check out the Molly’s Game trailer above.
Molly's Game is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, and stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd, and Bill Camp. This is the true story of Molly Bloom a beautiful, young, 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 film opens in theaters on November 22.
