There’s lots of Oscar buzz already about Foxcatcher, the biographical drama due out next month, and part of that buzz is for the acting changeup coming from the very funny Steve Carrell.
Here he’s playing eccentric millionaire John du Pont, who established a wrestling facility at his farm and went on to have, well, let’s say a bizarre relationship with Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler, Mark Schultz, (Channing Tatum) and his brother, Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo). A bizarre relationship with some serious consequences. Bennet Miller won the Best Director Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, and as you can see in this trailer, it looks like he does a pretty good job with establishing a believable and gripping picture. Look for Foxcatcher in theaters November 14.
