Southpaw Trailer

Mar 30, 2015

Category: Entertainment

Fresh off his heralded role as a wacko pseudo citizen-journalist in Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal is back with another intense project, this time playing a boxer who hits rock bottom.

The new trailer for Southpaw shows off Gyllenhaal’s ripped physique as he stars as a Junior Middleweight Champion who (spoiler alert) loses his wife and daughter—one more permanently than the other. And that’s a shame, because you’d like to see the fetching Rachel McAdams for the whole movie. The always solid Forest Whitaker plays the trainer who takes him under his wing, but having Gyllenhaal and Whitaker share camera time with 50 Cent? Come on now. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) directs and Eminem is contributing new music for the film which opens July 31.
