The moment that first Foxcatcher trailer premiered, we thought this thing had Oscar written all over it.
And now that we’ve seen it, that feeling has only intensified about this movie that tells the true story of John du Pont, his passion for U.S. Olympic wrestling and the tragedy that would conclude his mentoring of gold medal winners Mark and Dave Schultz.
Steve Carell mesmerizes (and should easily cruise to his first Oscar nod) as du Pont. Channing Tatum astounds as Mark, and he too should be hearing a Best Supporting Actor nomination nod coming his way. Then there’s the beautifully sublime performance of Mark Ruffalo as Dave -- he too should be getting serious consideration for a Best Supporting nomination.
Sony Pictures Classics has released the first poster for Foxcatcher featuring all three stars and it could not be more indicative of the film itself.
Don’t miss Foxcatcher in theaters November 14.
