Trailer for Molly’s Game from Aaron Sorkin

Based on Molly Bloom’s memoirs titled Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker, Aaron Sorkin’s makes his directorial debut with the obviously-titled Molly’s Game.

The movie tells the tale of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade. Sorkin looks to tell the tale from beginning to end, with Bloom’s beginnings in the poker business to the day FBI agents came to arrest her.

Watch the trailer below:

Molly’s Game also looks to tell the aftermath of her downfall, as Bloom looks to save herself both from the charges against her and the dangerous elements of her clientele with the help of her defense lawyer. Sorkin also wrote the film, and the trailer gives you a glimpse of what you expect of something Aaron Sorkin wrote, with strong snappy dialogue in abundance. While we may not be sure of Sorkin’s director chops, there is no doubting the man’s ability to write a quality film.

We’ll see how this latest effort compares to the others in his long, storied career.

Molly’s Game is scheduled for release on November 22. It stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Brian d’Arcy James, Michael Cera, Chris O’Dowd, and J.C. MacKenzie among its high profile cast.
