Watch Aaron Sorkin's Directorial Debut in 'Molly's Game' Trailer

Watch Aaron Sorkin's Directorial Debut in 'Molly's Game' Trailer”

The first official trailer for Molly's Game will be released sometime tomorrow.

Based on Bloom's own tell-all memoir, the movie takes Molly from helping her boss run a poker room at the "Cobra Lounge" (really the Viper Room on the Sunset Strip) to creating a thriving business of her own. The location becomes enormously successful. Seriously, though, we're going to draw up betting lines on what modern benign convenience or group of people Sorkin'll throw his cranky verbiage at this time around.

Joining Jessica Chastain in the film are Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O'Dowd, and Bill Camp.

STX bought the project at the Cannes Film Festival past year for $9 million. He adapted the script from the 2014 book "Molly's Game: From Hollywood's Elite to Wall Street's Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker". Aaron Sorkin certainly falls under that category and now after winning Oscars and Emmys for his work, ranging from The Social Network to The West Wing, he's making his directorial debut. Sorkin also wrote the film, with Mark Gordon, Amy Pascal, and Matt Jackson producing. It was announced today that the film will have it's world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
