MOLLY’S GAME In Theaters Christmas – FEATURETTE “Empire”
STX Films explores that question with the fall release of MOLLY’S GAME. The film, which follows the true story of former Olympic skier Molly Bloom, will star Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera.
MOLLY’S GAME is the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.
