Faces & Names: Carell ominous in ‘Foxcatcher’ trailer
If you thought the first “Foxcatcher” trailer was unnerving, brace yourself for the latest clip.
The new teaser trailer focuses primarily on Steve Carell, who’s almost unrecognizable as multi-millionaire John du Pont.
Based on true events, “Foxcatcher” tells the dark and tragic story of the relationship between eccentric multimillionaire John du Pont (Carell) and two champion wrestlers, Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and his brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo).
“I am leading men, I am training them, I am teaching them, I am giving them a dream and I am giving America hope,” du Pont says, which would be reassuring if we didn’t already know that he pits Tatum and Ruffalo’s characters against each other before murdering one.
Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” is one of fall’s most highly anticipated movies after receiving rave reviews and igniting Oscar buzz at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The psychological thriller hits theaters on Nov. 14.
