Steve Carell and Channing Tatum collaborate in this trailer for Foxcatcher

[Source: First Showing]

Channing Tatum had previously stated that Bennet Miller’s (Moneyball, Capote) upcoming film Foxcatcher had been his most challenging role. Almost two years have passed since that statement and now we finally have a trailer that gives us a glimpse into a possible breakthrough performance for both Channing Tatum and Steve Carell. Take a look at the trailer below.

Director Bennet Miller has a small list of films on his resume but a majority of his feature films have already gained Oscar recognition. This film has a lot of promise and could mean great things for the future of Carell and Tatum or it could keep them confined to the genres they’re known for if they fail to perform. Many genre specific actors have attempted to be more versatile by taking roles outside of their comfort zone and it can be a very slippery slope for their career. This teaser for Foxcatcher seems like it could be a game changer for these actors seeing that Carell has already prepared himself for a more versatile role and the role of a jock wrestler would be an easier transition for Tatum given his roles. Personally I love a great sports adaptation and especially if it’s wrestling. The film premieres November 14th at Cannes which is during prime time for Oscar buzz.
