Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star in the first Foxcatcher trailer
The first images from Bennett Miller’s FOXCATCHER had the internet abuzz that it might be a major player come Oscar time and now the first teaser trailer seems to confirm all of our suspicions. It looks like Miller is still in MONEYBALL form and Steve Carell has really sunk his teeth into this against-type role. If the first trailer is any indication, FOXCATCHER is going to be a major player come awards season. FOXCATCHER stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave and Sienna Miller. The Bennett Miller directed film hits theaters on December 20th, 2013.
FOXCATCHER official synopsis: FOXCATCHER tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on actual events, FOXCATCHER is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy.
