Olympic wrestling film 'Foxcatcher' garnering major Oscar buzz
Jul 2, 2014 at 2:30p ET
Coming this fall to a theater near you: "Foxcatcher," a taut biographical drama based on the real-life 1996 murder of Olympic gold medalist wrestler Dave Schultz by coach John du Pont.
Diving headlong into the little-known world of Olympic wrestling and directed by Bennett Miller ("Moneyball"), "Foxcatcher" stars Channing Tatum as Dave's brother Mark, also an Olympic gold medal wrestler, whose aspirations to be the best in the world lead him into the unhealthy snare of coach and multimillionaire paranoid schizophrenic John du Pont (a near-unrecognizable Steve Carell from "The Office").
Check out the teaser trailer below:
And here's another just-released teaser trailer:
The movie premiered at the Cannes film festival to rave reviews and buzz of a best actor Oscar nomination for Carell's revelatory dramatic turn. Already expected to be a major awards contender, "Foxcatcher" is set to be released on Nov. 14.
