A new trailer has been released for the upcoming dramatic sports tale "Foxcatcher", starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. You see an almost unrecognizable Carell and a very serious Tatum, which is a nice departure from much of their previous work.
The story is a dark and psychological mind-trip, based on the true 1966 events. Tatum plays Mark Schultz, the wrestler looking for his big break. John E. du Pont (Carell), the mysterious multimillionaire and coach, gives him the opportunity he has been waiting for. Mark Ruffalo plays Tatum's older brother Dave Schultz, a wrestling champion who is now devoted to his family. The film leads up to the events surrounding Dave's murder.
Director Bennett Miller is at it again with this intense film. Having brought us such raw adaptations from real events, such as "Capote" and "Moneyball", he seems like the perfect director to lead the charge on this one.
This film was screened at Cannes and was met with a standing ovation. The trio of performances are said to be spellbinding and early Oscar buzz should be surrounding this one rather quickly.
