Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game finally has a trailer, and it looks as sleek and confident as I was hoping it would. Not only that, but it’s actually nice seeing Sorkin embracing the idea of what might be his strongest female character since The West Wing‘s CJ.
The trailer is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu4UPet8Nyc
First impressions… I’m predicting at least a nod for Adapted Screenplay, Lead Actress and (depending on the skill he shows behind the camera) Best Director and/or Best Picture, the latter of which seems more likely in a wide open year.August 16, 2017 at 1:25 pm #1202187119
I didn’t really care for the trailer, but I like Chastain and Sorkin so I’m looking forward to it.August 16, 2017 at 1:28 pm #1202187125
It has Newsroom vibe about it… so I’m expecting it to stink. Badly.August 16, 2017 at 2:34 pm #1202187185
I just want Chastain to secure the nomination. She needs the boost.August 16, 2017 at 3:05 pm #1202187205
Hope this tanks as I’m expecting it to.August 16, 2017 at 3:34 pm #1202187250
I don’t wish any movie to tank. All pieces of art deserve a chance.August 16, 2017 at 5:11 pm #1202187283
Based on the dreadful trailer and appearance of strength in Lead Actress, I don’t see this emerging an awards season contender. Or a commercial success, for that matter. I hope, of course, I’m proven wrong, as I love both Chastain and Elba.

Trailer is not yet interesting, but Chastain? Nah cant help on thinking for her to see in this movie.August 17, 2017 at 5:19 am #1202187692
I don’t consider the trailer to be bad, it showcases Chastain pretty well and i don’t find it messy. Sorkin’s films have done very well during awards, specially for their actors so i am convinced this will deliver too.August 17, 2017 at 11:36 pm #1202188314
Framing looks very problematic/lazy on the trailerAugust 18, 2017 at 5:24 am #1202188455
It looks like if it were a TV series it might get a lead actress namecheck and be on the bubble for a series nomination. But at the Oscars? No way. Not even with Sorkin and Chastain behind it. It looks like it’s going to get mixed reviews and disappear like other Oscar bait movies before it.
