FOXCATCHER Trailer Drops Starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo


By Amirose Eisenbach May 20, 2014


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.

  • Just curious.....i was on the deadpool list already in 1984, and they finally nabbed me in 1991 (fortunately I was rescued at the last minute by Gurkhas, who did away with the bad guys). So now I am curious.....am I on your deadpool list? Signed, Dr J And by the way, I just read a comment someone wrote about something I had written 2 years ago. Usually I don't go back and check on things that I write to see what others comment about what I may have written, but this program, this "Disquis" or whatever it is called, kind of just pulled it up and suddenly it was there. So I couldn't miss it. I always sign what I write with my real, actual honest-to-goodness name, not a fake moniker so that no one knows who it was who said this or that. I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. That having been said, I think we could all lighten up a little bit, and recognize a joking manner, when it is in written form. It is not as easy to distinguish jocularity in writing style, much easier to misinterpret, so maybe I should just write up front (insert her, this is a joke, folks!) whenever i am doing it. But I did honestly think that when I made a statement about "cool police" coming to take away someone's "cool points" forever, that pretty much everyone could recognize that as a joke, after all, no "cool police" exist to my knowledge (and if I am wrong, someone please let me know so that I can get my coolness back together, it has gotten a little loose around the edges lately). But for that statement, it was written that I had made a "mediocre aggressive review". Now that in itself is funny. But there was nothing mediocre about challenging why a review of who the coolest people on earth are included not one single person of color. That was not a mediocre statement, that was truth. And if truth is seen as "mediocre" to some people, then there perhaps is the bottom line issue in America, that we as American people cannot distinguish fantasy from reality any longer. That the idiot box has now completely disrupted our ability to think and to analyze and to distinguish what is real, versus what is the garbage fed to us on a daily basis from our governments, and from the Hollywood Machine. Frank Zappa was right when he wrote (and sang, in his funky way) "I am the Slime from your Video". He also should have been featured in their Cool hall of Fame, but was obviously left out, because he criticized (and often) the kind of garbage that Hollywood puts out called "entertainment", even worse now that we have cable (in some ways that is a joke, and in some ways it isn't). If you have read this, I thank you for your attention. If you haven't, it's probably just as well. I really just wanted to clarify a few things, and now I think that I have. Thanks. Dr J
