Cinderella Man poster

CINDERELLA MAN is not the story of a guy who attends a keg party wearing a magical jock strap, giving him the most desired package on the planet. It has nothing to do with the fact that he leaves it dangling from the ceiling fan as he rushes home before midnight to deal with his three evil frat brothers. No, this isn't what the movie is about.... but it should be. The film, in fact, is about the life of legendary athlete Jim Braddock, a once-promising light heavyweight boxer forced into retirement after a string of losses in the ring. Due to some luck and a lot of incredible determination, Braddock puts together one last streak of highly unlikely wins and finds himself in the ring with the heavyweight champion of the world. The film stars Russell Crowe as Braddock, Renée Zellweger as his wife Mae, and Craig Bierko as the notorious champion, Max Baer. It's directed by the wonderful Ron Howard and opens wide this coming June. Click on the poster below for a bigger version.
