Miles Teller as Boxer Vinny Pazienza in First 'Bleed For This' Trailer
Open Road Films has debuted the first official trailer for a movie called Bleed For This, starring talented young actor Miles Teller as World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza. Paz's story is fascinating - he started to rise in the boxing world in the early 90s, winning the junior middleweight world title, but broke his neck in a serious car accident. Doctors told him he may never walk again, but Paz returned to the ring thirteen months after the accident and made one of the greatest comebacks in the history of boxing. The full cast includes Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Aaron Eckhart, Ted Levine, Kimberly Howe and Amanda Clayton. As expected, Teller looks fantastic in this, giving us yet another boxing movie to cheer for this fall.
Here's the first official trailer for Ben Younger's Bleed For This, originally debuted by People:
The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller), who after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he'd ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks. Bleed For This is both written and directed by American filmmaker Ben Younger, of the films Prime and Boiler Room previously. The screenplay is by Younger, from a story by Pippa Bianco. This has yet to play at any film festivals or otherwise but may show up somewhere later on. Open Road Films will release Bleed For This in select theaters starting November 4th this fall, with a wide release soon after. First impressions?

Damn, this looks really good. Teller definitely got the part because of Whiplash, and I can picture him doing a great job in this one. He got really ripped for the role. On a side note, it makes me happy to hear Willis Earl Beal ("Too Dry to Cry") on the soundtrack. Very underrated musician.

Another boxing movie? Really? After all the Rocky ones and now this? For me there was no need for anymore boxing movies after Scorsese and DeNiro's Raging Bull. I don't believe I've even bothered with any since that great film came out and know I've not missed anything worthy of my time. Enough said.

Million Dollar Baby and We Were Kings (doco) are pretty amazing entries into the boxing movie world. Last years Creed was also a decent film.

Thanks for you reply. However, I respectfully disagree. I did kind of like Million Dollar Baby, especially the end when he went and gave her the shot that ended her misery. That surprised me coming from Clint...a heavy-weight Republican/Conservative. As far as Creed goes...well...I'm glad you liked it, but it and Stallone just are not my cup of tea. Cheers!

Doesn't look right. Yes, yes the fighting is fake, but it SHOULD look real.

Another story about the will to overcome hardships of life, right? Nope, the success is not about having a good life, but to imitate everyday's struggling for its idea... Really boring ...

Ok...I Live in Cranston Rhode Island. I grew up 2 streets away from Vinny Paz. I worked for his nephew on flooring. All growing up alls we ever wanted was an autograph or for him to stop and say hi . Being young kids that woulda been awesome. He always drove with his nose in the air, never gave anyone the time of day. I.bought some of his gym equipment while he was in the driveway. 20 + years later, still no acknowledgement. After they sold his house first thing the new owners did was erase the tazmanian devil painted on garage. Theres no love for this guy here or his drug dealing nephew. Thats my trailer for the movie.
