Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain in Molly's Game

Molly’s Game Trailer #2 (2017) “Go All In”

Aaron Sorkin is my favorite writer working….in any format.  The scribe behind The West Wing, The Newsroom, A Few Good Men, The American President, Moneyball, Charlie Wilson’s War, has written some of the greatest screenplays of this generation.  Now, he’s directing his own script in Molly’s Game.  The second trailer reveals more about the insane dilemma Molly Bloom finds herself in when she’s put on trial for running elite poker games, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg of nuts this story is and I’ll let your read the full description below for a better summary.  Molly’s Game bows November 22, 2017.

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, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.

  1. I cannot believe that this happened in real life. I cannot believe I never heard that this thing happened. This is going to be great.

    BR has an A- Cinemascore BTW, so perhaps my theater was filled with jerks. Perhaps I was one of them, because I let the hype cloud my opinion, which I never do, and I was bummed by how different is was from the original, when all the good sequels are extremely different from the originals, and I am always preaching the virtue of that.

    1. I can’t believe I never heard anything about this earlier, but it’s exactly the kind of thing Sorkin likes to write about. The atmosphere in a movie theater can totally change how you’re feeling. A good or bad crowd can change your natural feelings and it’s happened to me a ton. I hope this gets great word of mouth, and aside from the beginning’s summary, you can walk into this film without having seen all the different cuts of BR. You may want to go back to it afterward, but it’s not like having to see Fellowship before Two Towers.
