The first full length Foxcatcher trailer is here and it’s easy to see why after the film appeared at the Cannes Film Festival and then the Toronto International Film Festival people are using the phrase Oscar nominee to describe Steve Carell. Yup, that’s right!
The comic actor is stretching his wings and his power was evident even in that first Foxcatcher teaser trailer that arrived months ago.
Carell stars as John du Pont, the heir to the DuPont chemical fortune, who put his money to work to feed his passion for wrestling, all in an effort to bring America gold in the sport at the Olympics.
Channing Tatum stars as Mark Schultz and Mark Ruffalo stars as his brother Dave. The two were wrestling legends, and the pulling of Mark to du Pont for training would test their sibling bond which would, by the end, result in murder.
Foxcatcher lands November 14 and we have a feeling we’ll have to revise that Top 13 Steve Carell movies when this thing comes out!
