The first trailer for Molly’s Game, starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba and Michael Cera, was released yesterday (August 15). Watch the trailer below:
The official synopsis:
MOLLY’S GAME is 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, 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.
The film was announced to be part of TIFF Special Presentation/Gala line-up. Woman Walks Ahead ( Jessica’s next project) will also be part of TIFF.
In addition to the trailer, new promotional stills were released:
