Molly's Game Empire

“Molly’s Game” Gets Behind-the-Scenes Look

“Empire”, new behind-the-scenes feature, has just been released for the brilliantly crafted Molly’s Game, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut starring Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain.

Centered around Molly Bloom, the Olympic-class skier who found herself running the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game, Molly’s Game is part drama, part thriller and part in-depth character study.  The combination is lethal as you witness a powerful woman take command and make her presence known in a male dominated industry.

While the footage in “Empire” plays more like a long trailer than anything else, you do get a few soundbites from Sorkin, Chastain and the real Molly Bloom, providing some additional perspective to the story and its players.

Molly’s Game co-stars Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong and Chris O’Dowd.  Its slated for select theaters on Christmas Day before going wide the following week.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
