Foxcatcher Synopsis

Foxcatcher is a psychological drama directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Moneyball) and starring Golden Globe winner Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo, Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave and Sienna Miller. The film was written by E. Max Frye and Academy Award nominee Dan Futterman. 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.

2014 won’t go down as the greatest year in the history of Hollywood, but it had a lot of damn good movies. Some of them were big budget, some of them were made on shoestrings. In a way, that’s the great thing about Hollywood.

Foxcatcher is coming, and Jesus, does it look dark. This true-life drama tells the story of an ambitious wrestling prodigy, Mark Schultz, who gets involved with a shady millionaire, John Du Pont (Steve Carell). If you're familiar with the real story, you know where this is all headed, and it's not pretty. But, being a trailer, this clip assumes you're not. And even though the basic plot developments make sense in an A-to-B progression sort of way, this feels like a clip for a movie that will be entirely unpredictable.

His second live action film of 2014, as you can see from the brand new poster you see above, won't be quite as smile-inducing.
