Molly's Game

Molly’s Game
Director: Aaron Sorkin
Screenwriter: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Brian d’Arcy James, Chris O’Dowd, Bill Camp, Graham Greene, Claire Rankin, Joe Keery, Jeremy Strong
Distributor: STX Films
Rated R| 140 Minutes
Release Date: December 25, 2017

Molly’s Game is terrific in every sense of the word. That is if you can keep up with Aaron Sorkin’s rapid-fire dialogue. But even though it may seem like things are moving at a lightning-fast pace, Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba never miss a beat. Both take command of the screen with their superb performances and excellent chemistry, and with the film rich with Sorkin’s juicy and witty interchanges, there is never a dull moment.

And even if everything is coming at the audience at a dizzying pace, it’s hard to deny that Sorkin’s directorial debut was long overdue. My full review below.

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs
Director: Danny Boyle
Screenwriter: Aaron Sorkin
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sarah Snook, John Ortiz
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 121 Minutes
Release Date: October 9, 2015 LA & NY | October 23, 2015 Nationwide

When Steve Jobs was alive, it was hard to imagine a world without the inspirational inventor introducing us to one of his latest Apple product, yet somehow the tech giant’s legacy is still going strong four years after his passing. Jobs wasn’t exactly open about his life, thus making it hard to figure out the man behind the machines. Director Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs, from Aaron Sorkin outstanding screenplay adapted from the 2011 biography, as well as his own interviews, gives the world a way to get to know who Steve Jobs is, and how he saw the world.

Steve Jobs isn’t your traditional biopic. It’s broken into three major events in Jobs’ life all taking place 30 minutes in real time before the product launches of LISA, the NeXT, and iMac. And what makes it all captivating is the fact that in those three 30-minute pre-launches, we get to see a man who is clearly the smartest person in the room reveal himself to be a vulnerable yet headstrong man with a clear vision of bringing technology to the masses while creating a legacy that only a few could ever dream of.

Lucille Ball

Cate Blanchett is now attached to star in a Lucille Ball biopic that is being written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Moneyball).

Of course with that kind of combination it is expected that the film is being geared towards a major awards campaign. The film will cover the 20-year marriage of Ball and Desi Arnaz, and presumably also their TV show I Love Lucy. It will be produced by their two children Lucy Arnaz Jr. and Desi Arnaz Jr.

Michael Fassbender

Aaron Sorkin‘s scripted Steve Jobs biopic was in flux at one point in time. The project was over at Sony, with expectations that David Fincher would be directing and Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio were attached to star. But when everything fell through, Universal quickly scooped it up and snagged Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) to direct the biopic about the Apple founder. It may have taken a while, with casting rumors and such, but now the studio has confirmed the cast, title, and logline, as well as announced the start of principal photography.

Simply titled Steve Jobs, the film will star Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former Macintosh marketing boss Joanna Hoffman, Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley, Katherine Waterston as Jobs’ ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, and Michael Stuhlbarg as one of the Mac’s original developers Andy Hertzfeld. Perla Haney-Jardine, Ripley Sobo, Makenzie Moss, Sarah Snook, and Adam Shapiro are also part of the cast.
