First Trailer for Southpaw

Jake Gyllenhaal is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. Everything I've seen him in he has been brilliant, especially his latest films. He had Academy Award-level performances in both Prisoners and Nightcrawler. So I have been very interested in what he's doing next. Back in November, a picture of Gyllenhaal was released of him in his new movie Southpaw. You can read that article here. I commented on how he has been changing his physique drastically to fit his performances, not unlike Christian Bale. While my article was more focused on that comparison, I did say the movie looked interesting, but I had no idea.

This trailer is fantastic! This looks like it is going to be a very gritty, brutal movie in the boxing scenes, and we see some psychopathic moments in Gyllenhaal's character, similar to certain moments we had in Nightcrawler. The story looks really good, and this is going to be foremost a drama, which is Gyllenhaal's strength. From the looks of the trailer, this could potentially get Gyllenhaal another Academy Award nomination, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Overall, this looks great and I am very excited for this movie.
