STX Entertainment released a second trailer for Aaron Sorkin‘s highly anticipated directorial debut, “Molly’s Game.”
The film tells the true story of competitive downhill skier Molly Bloom. After missing out on Olympic glory, Bloom went on to launch an exclusive, high-stakes poker game that brought together celebrities, politicians, and the ultra rich.
Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain stars as Molly Bloom. Chastain was nominated for roles in “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty,” winning a Golden Globe for the latter. She has also starred in a number of other popular films including “Interstellar” and “The Martian.”
Idris Elba co-stars as Molly’s long suffering attorney, Charlie. The six-time Golden Globe nominee has starred in films including “Beasts of No Nation” and “Thor.” He won a Golden Globe for his role in the British television series “Luther.” Elba also stars this month in the survival story, “The Mountain Between Us.”
Prolific screenwriter Aaron Sorkin makes his directorial debut in this glossy drama. Sorkin won an Academy Award for writing “The Social Network.” He was also nominated for adapting “Moneyball” in 2012. In addition, Sorkin has written screenplays for “A Few Good Men,” “The American President,” and “Steve Jobs.” His work on the television drama “The West Wing” earned him a number of Primetime Emmy Awards.
