Producer of Bet Raise Fold documentary turns again to online poker for inspiration.
The trailer for a new online poker-based movie titled LuckBoxes has been released, showcasing a 2009 tale around two brothers, struggling to find their way in the Great Recession, who turn to online poker to save their childhood home from foreclosure.
The movie is produced by Ryan Firpo, who is perhaps better known for his documentary on the rise and fall of online poker in Bet Raise Fold .
Distribution of LuckBoxes will be through streaming and cable TV, although a release date has not yet been announced.
Whilst reluctant to be critical based only on a trailer, our opinion is that the standard of acting and content in this production is unlikely to result in top Oscar awards….but judge for yourself here:
