We can’t wait for this.

The latest trailer for Jessica Chastain’s newest movie is here Molly’s Game  – and it looks seriously intense.

The Oscar nominated actress stars as “Poker Princess” Molly Bloom, who ran one of the most exclusive (and illegal) poker games in the world which ultimately ended up with her being indicted by FBI at just 26 years old.

The high-stakes games attracted a number of celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Tobey Maguire for almost a decade.

And, according to Vanity Fair, Wall Street business men and members of the Russian mob also attended her games.

She was arrested in 2013 for her role in the $100 million gambling ring – and released a tell-all memoir one year later, which the film is based on.

It will follow her journey from her early days as an Olympic hopeful until what happened after her arrest.

The real life tale also features a cast that includes Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera.

It will be Oscar winning writer Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut – and he previously told how nervous he was going into directing the film.

He told Entertainment Weekly:

“I saw her as a very unique movie heroine, and thought there was an interesting way to tell her story.

“God knows I was scared going into it. But I felt like there was a chance I could be good at it. I don’t mean good at directing, I mean good at directing this movie.”

Molly’s Game is due out in December 2017.
