Molly Bloom never intended to run the world’s most exclusive, high-stakes poker game, nor did she ever anticipate that she would be implicated in a high-profile legal case. As the first trailer for Molly’s Game reveals, Molly (Jessica Chastain) was an underappreciated assistant whose talents at running a poker game for her boss were taken for granted. So she started her own game, soon becoming a huge success with a clientele that included movie stars, directors and business tycoons.
Such success comes at a high price for Molly, leading to an FBI investigation and the need for a world-class lawyer (Idris Elba) to help her prevail. Kevin Costner and Michael Cera also star; Academy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) wrote the screenplay and makes his directorial debut. Make sure to book your seat for Molly’s Game, opening in theaters on November 22.
