Foxcatcher Teaser Poster: Steve Carell Gets Serious

by at .  Updated at . Comments

You’ve seen that Channing Tatum Foxcatcher poster and now Sony Pictures Classics has released the character poster for lead Steve Carell.

The normally comedic actor looks almost unrecognizable as John du Pont, a man who is as obsessed about bringing U.S. wrestling to the higher world ranks as he is trying to exert some sort of control over his own life. As a du Pont heir, Carell’s character is constantly subject to his familial pressures that seem to have him on the brink of madness.

The true story follows Carell’s du Pont as he mentors gold medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum). And as you can tell from the Foxcatcher trailer, obsession, at some point, turns to murder.

Mark Ruffalo also stars as Schultz’s brother (also a wrestler), who seems to be pushing the caution button for his brother around every turn. There is something truly off about du Pont and he knows it.

Foxcatcher has Oscar bait written all over it and it also stars Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall. Look for it November 14.
