‘Molly’s Game’ Trailer: Sorkin’s Directorial Debut Gets Fittingly Longwinded Trailer

My god. I don’t know what I was expecting from a Sorkin trailer, if not Sorkin. So here’s the trailer for his directorial debut, which probably sets the record for most longwinded shit ever crammed into 2:46. Regarding the actual movie, I’m sort of intrigued. I guess?


Aaron Sorkin has a helluva story for his feature directorial debut. The writer behind The West WingThe Social Network, and Moneyball is telling another story of ambition and perseverance with Molly’s Game. Based on Molly Bloom’s fast-paced, high-stakes, and exceptionally entertaining memoir of the same name, Sorkin will show how she ran some of the most exclusive and lucrative underground poker games in Hollywood and New York.

Below, watch the first Molly’s Game trailer.

After Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) almost made the Olympic Ski Team and before she attended Harvard Law School, she decided to take a year off before college. Within two weeks of living in Los Angeles, she found herself hosting games at the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip, or as it’s called in the film, The Cobra Lounge.
