Sony Classics finally gives us our first official look at Bennett Miller‘s long-awaited Foxcatcher starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo and I couldn’t help but watch it myself and boy does it look dark.
Based on the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), Foxcatcher tells of their relationship with the eccentric John du Pont (Steve Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune, a story that leads down some dark alleys as this trailer is clear to point out. Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall co-star.
Foxcatcher is set to open the 2013 AFI Festival on November 8, more than a month before its December 20, and you better believe a lot of people are going to be champing at the bit to be the first to see it.
Watch the trailer directly below.
