Compelling teaser for Foxcatcher with an unrecognizable Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo

Sep. 26, 2013by: Paul Shirey

We've seen some images of the cast for FOXCATCHER, a true crime film based on eccentric multimillionaire John duPont, who was convicted of murdering an Olympic wrestler, which show off stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo in a very different light and now we have a teaser trailer to see them come to life. Carell plays duPont, a sports enthusiast (amongst other things) who established a wrestling facility at his Foxcatcher Farm after becoming interested in the event. It was there that he formed a bond with Olympic wrestlers Dave Schultz (Ruffalo) and Mark Schultz (Tatum), a relationship that later turned sour and led to murder. The teaser is amazingly compelling and seeing Carell as a nearly unrecognizable character and playing against his usual type could spell a healthy awards season for the usually comedic actor.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

The story of Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and how paranoid schizophrenic John duPont killed his brother, Olympic Champion Dave Schultz.

The film is directed by Bennett Miller, who has won much acclaim before with both MONEYBALL and CAPOTE. FOXCATHER looks to join those ranks as another intricate look at a real-life event and all its complexities. It seems like all the actors have gone against the grain for this and it will be interesting to see how it plays out. From the looks of the teaser, though, this one looks to be a dark horse that no one saw coming.

FOXCATCHER is set for release on December 20, 2013.

The teaser definitely made me interested in this film. Good for Carrell branching out more. The guy does drama just as good as comedy.

Carrell is one actor who will never be able to do straight drama. I recognized him and can promise this won't work.

So, because you recognized him he can't play it straight? So long as you're promising things, you willing to promise what will happen if you're wrong? Since you seem so sure of yourself.

Well, this is definitely a teaser, but it gets the mood across pretty well. The way Steve Carell has altered his vocal intonation and patterns is what's really selling me on this. Couple that with the makeup job and I'm ready to believe the man actually sounds that way. It'll be interesting to see what kind of attention he draws come awards-season, cuz with Bennett Miller behind the camera, you know he's gonna wind up with at least a nomination, maybe Tatum or Ruffalo, too (Capote and Moneyball
