I realize this trailer came out a few days back but I wanted to make sure it got some space here on our site.
Below you'll find the first teaser trailer for director Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carrell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffallo.
The film tells the true story of John du Pont (Carrell), a heir to the DuPont Chemical fortune, who was both a crazed wrestling addict and a mentally ill individual. du Pont used his wealth to train Olympic wrestling champions, played by Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffallo, but was later convicted of murder and died in jail in 2010.
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival just last week and received ecstatic reviews, praising it as early Oscar bait and making Carrell an early frontrunner for Best Actor.
Director Bennett Miller is looking to go 3 for 3 with Best Picture nominations as his first two films (Capote, Moneyball) both achieved that distinction.
Foxcatcher opens in theaters November 14th.
