Jake Gyllenhaal is phenomenal in the new Southpaw trailer

06.05.2015

Many people complained that the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama SOUTHPAW gave away too much about the plot. I mean, in less than five minutes we learn how everything comes crashing down for Jake Gyllenhaal's character as well as the death of a major cast-member. Still, after seeing this condensed second trailer, I am convinced we have not seen anything yet.

Much like Gyllenhaal's performance in NIGHTCRAWLER, the trailer for SOUTHPAW looks to only hint at the full range of emotional turmoil we are going to see. It seems that all boxing films focus on emotional and personal turmoil outside of the ring rather than just the sport itself. SOUTHPAW looks gritty, tough, and inspirational along with all of those other things as well.

SOUTHPAW was originally going to star Eminem as Billy Hope. I am really glad that things changed and Gyllenhaal ended up in the lead as he is one of the most interesting actors working today. But, while I have lost interest in Eminen's music since graduating from high school, I have to say the song featured in this trailer may be his catchiest since winning the Oscar for 8 MILE.

SOUTHPAW opens in theaters on July 24th.

Much better trailer.....

....but I already know the entire plot of the movie. The first trailer really ruined it. Still, looks like a great video rental.

Are you being sarcastic? Because this trailer and the other one both seem to explain pretty clearly what the movie is about.

Should be another good, successful year for Gyllenhaal with Southpaw, and Everest.

Listen to more Eminem people, this is not this best work. He's on a very big hot streak.

As for the movie, I was interested the second I saw Kurt Sutter wrote it. I'll watch, or read anything that guy does.
