Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain? I’m already signed up without even needing to see the Molly’s Game trailer.
Here’s the synopsis:
Molly’s Game is the true story of Molly Bloom, an 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.

Chris O’Dowd, Michael Cera and Kevin Costner are also co-starring in the film, which is set for a Nov. 22 release. That puts the film right in the mix for Oscar award consideration. With this cast and Director Aaron Sorkin behind the camera, there’s a pretty good likelihood this will be one to keep an eye on. Especially for folks who like to check out all the films to determine which film was robbed and deserved more buzz and a nomination.
