I was a bit bummed when the release date for Molly’s Game was pushed back from Thanksgiving to Christmas, but either way, it’s a great film to see with friend or family because it’s such a breakneck blast. You’ve got Aaron Sorkin’s rapid-fire dialogue, skillful editing, and a compelling story about Molly Bloom, who ran an infamous underground poker ring. I’ve seen the movie twice now and while there are certainly more prestigious titles in 2017, Molly’s Game is easily one of the most fun movies I’ve seen this year.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of Molly’s Game. To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “MOLLY’S GAME”. The screening is on Monday, December 18th at 7:30PM at Regal Perimeter Pointe, so please don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Multiple entries from a single person will disqualify all entries from that person.
Check out the Molly’s Game trailer below. The film opens December 25th and stars Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd, and Bill Camp.
Here’s the official synopsis for Molly’s Game:
MOLLY’S GAME is based on 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.
