Online Poker Movie Trailer, Take X

by , Dec 13, 2011 | 5:10 pm

Check it out … poker movies seem to be proliferating ever since revelations of crime and darkness made the game semi-dramatic once again. This one, Ace High — not to be confused with the 1968 western of the same name nor the PBR bull that remains unridden after 90+ attempts — seems to be about a privileged extra-smart kid whose online poker success brings in backers … but not before he gets in too deep (presumably with people shadier than he realized) … where he’s sure to lose his hot college romance if he doesn’t win the big one (not to be confused with The Big One for One Drop, which screams for straight-to-DVD release).

No spoiler intended … Just guessing at the plot-line from the Ace High trailer, which is fairly good-lookin’ for an indie movie still seeking funding to complete. Wonder how PokerStars got the product placement … and which online pros may or may not make any on-screen appearances … and whether or not players would have legal rights use of the likeness of their online poker avatars or even screen names:

    Most of the clips are from 21, the blackjack movie with Kevin Spacey, interspersed with a bit of Die Hard 4 and music from Inception. Nothing original here…

     Though the clips are not original one…but still an effort to share information with other poker players..dn’t say about others but i like it personally!!

    Lol mr. Anonymous flame thrower. Apparently you didn’t listen to the award-winning poker beat, where my friends and fans constantly berated my lack of player knowledge. but I stuck to my guns with the notion that you need 3 bracelets to really matter.
    Thanks for the comment. Leave a real email next time.

    Really liked it and when you read the comments it sounds like a start up from some smart guys, hope to see a new poker movie about the internet kids and their style of playing
