In Molly's Game 2017, Molly speaks about Harlan and Brad playing in poker game in which Brad won:

Molly: It wasn't even that it was that much money. Harlan only lost about $40,000 on the hand. But a circuit breaker blew, and Harlan was out for blood now. Everyone's.

What does "Everyone's" mean? Does Molly is suggesting that Harlan was looking to take revenge on everyone, not just Brad who won the hand?

    Yes you are correct. It means "everyone's blood". It's an example of ellipsis. The omitted word is obvious from the context.

Everyone's blood.

The idiom "be out for blood" means "be intending to attack (someone), or make them suffer in some way". It means that the person is not willing to compromise or play "nicely".
