The shocking true story of John duPont and the Olympic Wresting Champion Shultz brothers is coming to the big screen from the mind who brought us Moneyball and Capote. We’ve seen very little on the project so far, now a second teaser trailer has been released showing how insanely intense and traumatic this story is.
I’ve seen one movie so far this year that can be considered in that Best Picture category, that was Chef. Foxcatcher looks like it may even be better. I’ve seen 2 minutes in trailers so far and Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, and Mark Ruffalo’s performances look like they cold be Oscar worthy as well. Carell looks like it will be his best performance ever, but Tatum looks like the stand-out. This is the first role where he has really branched out and it couldn’t look any better (so far). The movie looks incredibly exhilarating, heart-breaking, and shocking all at the same time. Even though most of us know the story and where it leads, there’s no doubt in my mind the movie and the performances won’t impress. Check it out below.
Foxcatcher opens in theaters on November 14th, 2014. Directed by Bennet Miller starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Michael Hall, Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave, Tara Subkoff, and Brett Rice.
