Molly’s Game Trailer Starring Jessica Chastain: Aaron Sorkin Makes his Directorial Debut


He may have his detractors, but Aaron Sorkin is one of the most well-known and respected screenwriters currently working in Hollywood, having penned such films as The Social Network, Moneyball and A Few Good Men as well as shows like The West Wing and The Newsroom. Now he is stepping behind the camera for the first time with his directorial debut, Molly’s Game, a prestige project that seems to be positioned for maximum awards season visibility. The movie is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran Hollywood’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game before eventually running afoul of the FBI. Jessica Chastain will deliver the trademark rapid fire Sorkin dialogue along with Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Chris O’Dowd and Michael Cera. Molly’s Game hits theatres on Nov. 22nd; check out the first trailer after the jump.
