"I want to see this country soar again..." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted a brand new teaser trailer for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, and I would say it is indeed a must watch, it's an excellent trailer, coming in at just 60 seconds. There's an exciting intensity to it and I can't recommend the film enough, it was one of my favorites out of Cannes 2014. Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star as wrestlers Mark Schultz and Dave Schultz, and Steve Carell plays their creepy, rich coach John du Pont, a real life story about greed and murder. This film is full of mystery and intrigue, incredible performances, it's going to be the talk of the town when it hits theaters this fall. More exceptional teasers like this and it'll be a breakout hit, too. Enjoy!
Here's the newest teaser trailer for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, direct from YouTube:
Foxcatcher is directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball) and written by Dan Futterman (Capote, "In Treatment") and E. Max Frye ("Band of Brothers"). The film tells the gripping, true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz & Dave Schultz (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with eccentric John du Pont (Steve Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune, that led to a gruesome murder. Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall also star in the film which Sony Pictures Classics releases in the heart of awards season on November 14th this fall. Read our review. The first teaser poster was debuted last week, and Bennett Miller also won Best Director at Cannes this year.
