Jake Gyllenhaal Takes a Beating in Trailer for Fuqua's 'Southpaw'

Southpaw

"I can't lose my daughter. I'll give you my everything." We'd already gotten a first look at a ripped Jake Gyllenhaal for his role in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama Southpaw, but now that the first trailer has arrived, it's clear that this isn't just another boxing movie. Gyllenhaal plays a champion who has his life torn away form him piece by piece, leaving him a shell of the man he used to be. There's a really meaty story here, and the redemption that Gyllenhaal's character seeks isn't just for boxing glory. This is a summer release, but I hope this ends up getting Gyllehaal the Oscar nomination he didn't get for Nightcrawler.

Here's the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw from YouTube:

Southpaw

Southpaw is directed by Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer, Olympus Has Fallen, Shooter, Training Day) and written by Kurt Sutter ("Sons of Anarchy" and "The Shield"). Jake Gyllenhaal plays Junior Middleweight Champion Billy “The Great” Hope, a lefty champ who loses his wife, daughter and life as he knows it after a personal tragedy, forcing him to literally fight his way to redemption. Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and more star in the film which will hit theaters on July 31st this summer.

This looks amazing. It's going to evoke strong emotions especially for husbands and fathers.

Only a matter of time before Jake is taking home some hardware

It's kinda weird he haven't yet. Such a over all talent.

I agree.. but not so sure that it will be for this movie, this looks too generic, we have all seen this before kind of movie.. But I agree, the dude has great talent.

Kurt Sutter is on a roll! Jake is on fire but not sure about the direction - feels very gangster like.

Gangster like?

Yeah, it just kinda has that vibe. Guess its the music and seeing 50 cent in there and lets be honest Antoine likes his ganster tales and it seems to be cheapening what might otherwise be an interesting downfall and subsequent rise of a man. Just my opinion.

wow

Sorry Sky, it's a lovely trailer and everything's peachy.

I guess they should've just tried to recreate the Rocky score. I hate it when they use that hippity-hopp music the kids like. You know, that hippity-hopp music that's made billions of dollars and been around for over 30 years now. Oh so cheapening...

Gyllenhaal looks like he'll be great in this!

Nielsen700 on Mar 27, 2015

Looks great, but I'm a bit disappointed to know EXACTLY what happens to the wife

Richie G on Mar 27, 2015

15

I disagree. Her death kicks off the story we're going to see unfold, and I don't know how they could have shown it any other way in the trailer.

Benjamin Hunter on Mar 27, 2015

16

I certainly see your point, but I'm sure they could have alluded to him losing his kid without showing the wife getting shot. You're probably right, I just feel it neuters a great deal of the emotional impact out of that scene and prevents us from caring about the wife as we're just waiting for her to die

Richie G on Mar 28, 2015

17

Kind of the same way we were just waiting for John Wick's dog to die 🙁

Benjamin Hunter on Mar 28, 2015

kind of hard to show a trailer for the movie otherwise seeing as thats the central event. so tired of the morons crying about trailers. THEN DONT WATCH THEM

SallySpider on Mar 28, 2015

Judging from your comments in this thread, you are one very butt hurt individual

Richie G on Mar 28, 2015

Dang. This looks epic.

Another trailer that shows way too much

Efterklang on Mar 27, 2015

22

Every boxing film ever

Nethanel DeCarmo on Mar 27, 2015

23

yeah...apparently there's a boxing matching in this movie about a boxer MOVIE RUINED

SallySpider on Mar 28, 2015

24

Sigh.. There are plenty of better crafted trailers that don't show too much, but this one did.

Efterklang on Mar 28, 2015

JG is making a career of becoming a progressively scarier person.

Benjamin Hunter on Mar 27, 2015

26

which is a good thing ...

shiboleth on Mar 27, 2015

very very interested because of Gyllenhaal, never seen a bad movie of him. Looks awesome...

ari smulders on Mar 27, 2015

Man, you gotta love JG. Seriously, he's one of few American actors lately worth attention... And some reward for his work is coming too late ...

shiboleth on Mar 27, 2015

29

one of the few? oh ok

SallySpider on Mar 28, 2015

30

well, since it's one of the few there's no need mentioning too many of them, right?

shiboleth on Mar 28, 2015

how the fuck does 50 cent keep getting acting jobs ... his agent must be amazing ... ROC

Comment of the year ^^^^ haha

I'll watch any movie with Gyllenhaal. This looks pretty damn good is just a bonus.

One of the best workers in La La Land.

Ummm.....50 cent and Rita Ora.....they really packed this film with solid actors ;( What a joke...........I'll pass.

Who's laughing now!

Damn! He got huge for this film. I am always down to see a boxing film. Shame about the spoilers, though.

DAVIDPD on Mar 27, 2015

Dig it. Looks like a heavy watch.

grimjob on Mar 27, 2015

Awesome. The 'villain' kinda looks like Anthony Pettis. Expecting some good stuff here. Just hope the fighting is shot well. Looks like they're doing the same hard camera set up like actual boxing fights which is good. Hope they use that perspective frequently with long takes for realism. I enjoy Fuqua's directing style. That plus Gyllenhaul, the boxing premise, and Rachel McAdams has me invested.

NathanDewey on Mar 27, 2015

Hmm, gotta check this one out. With me being a big boxing fan and all. And I do kinda like Gyllenhaal and Fuqua.

John Doe on Mar 27, 2015

Jake's looking way too chubby, can't buy it. He looks properly scary in some of the shots, which is good.

Carpola on Mar 28, 2015

I hope this is awesome! I have faith in those involved and I have wanted a good fight oriented movie ever since Warrior.

Blake on Mar 31, 2015

Whoo! Kurt Sutter! Hopefully it will be good.
