This is the first chilling trailer for the true life drama thriller Foxcatcher, and it features Steve Carell in a role like you've never seen him before. The actor is unrecognizable, as he plays the schizophrenic murderer John du Pont. The film's incredible cast also includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, and Anthony Michael Hall. The film was directed by Bennett Miller (Moneyball), and here's the synopsis:
FOXCATCHER tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on actual events, FOXCATCHER is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy.
The film is set to be released on December 20th, and it looks like it's going to be an amazing movie.
