Teaser and creepy clip from Foxcatcher with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum

05.19.2014

Bennett Miller has certainly proven himself a capable director with the Oscar-winning films CAPOTE and MONEYBALL. He has been able to take actors and fully transform them on screen. Whether it be a talented dramatic actor like Philip Seymour Hoffman completely changing his physical appearance or a comedic actor like Jonah Hill pulling a dramatic 180, Miller has showcased some talent in his films. Now, with FOXCATCHER, he aims to do it again.

Starring an almost unrecognizable Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, FOXCATCHER tells a tragic true story of murder and madness.

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

Now, when you watch the trailer and clip from FOXCATCHER, you may be thrown off by the physical appearance of the cast. Hell, you may even chuckle and think it appears ridiculous. But, for some reason, it works for me. There is definitely a gravity to Carell's performance here that we have not seen before. He has stretched himself dramatically in films like DAN IN REAL LIFE and LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, but DuPont looks like the type of role that wins awards. We don't see much of Ruffalo here, but Channing Tatum looks decent as well.

Already receiving a lot of acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, FOXCATCHER will premiere in theaters on November 14, 2014.

Awesome!

Steve Carrel is a truly talent comedian but I've always felt as if he could also be an excellent dramatic actor based on his performances in comedies with dramatic undertones like "Little Miss Sunshine". I have seen at least 4 articles out of Canne that have claimed Carrel is a lock for an Oscar nomination and will likely be the man to beat (obviously very early for this but they were reputable writers). I think Carrel is one of the "good guys" that has remained down to earth with his
Steve Carrel is a truly talent comedian but I've always felt as if he could also be an excellent dramatic actor based on his performances in comedies with dramatic undertones like "Little Miss Sunshine". I have seen at least 4 articles out of Canne that have claimed Carrel is a lock for an Oscar nomination and will likely be the man to beat (obviously very early for this but they were reputable writers). I think Carrel is one of the "good guys" that has remained down to earth with his tremendous success so I always root for guys like that to succeed. Very excited for this film and looking forward to seeing a career defining performance by Carrel, I hope that he doesn't suffer from the difficulty comedic actors have run into when it comes to actually winning an Oscar like Jim Carrey (Man on the Moon) and Bill Murray (Lost in Translation).

It's going to be one of those really good small films that comes out nowhere near any of the cinemas surrounding me.

Looks good though.

I'm with you, but it's being put out there in every Cannes review I've read so far. Apparently because the film is based on a true story they assume everyone has heard of it.
