Last year’s release of the Dan Gilroy-directed Nightcrawler became a winner among movie goers for actor Jake Gyllenhaal who proves time and again to have the caliber to deliver some of the intriguing performances to date. This year, the actor is back, beefed up and bound for more glory with his newest effort, Southpaw, now in the good company of filmmaker Antoine Fuqua with Kurt Sutter and Richard Wenk penning the story of Billy Hope a young boxing champion forced to overcome immense odds amid tragedy, self-destruction and judicial indignance to gain his daughter back from the system.
Rachel McAdams also stars along with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Forest Whitaker with appearances by Rita Ora and The Expendables 3 co-star, boxer and actor Victor Ortiz.
The Weinstein Company is giving this one a July 31 release in the U.S., and thankfully we have a trailer to show just what we are in for, and it looks absolutely intense. Check it out!
