(PCM) Oscar buzz has been building behind director Bennet Miller’s biographical drama, Foxcatcher, ever since the film premiered in France at 2014’s Cannes Festival, winning Miller the best director award.
With critics raving about the stars’ performances, Foxcatcher already has a certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes of 91% from critics.
Todd McCarthy of Hollywood Reporter calls the film “A superbly modulated study of a twisted mind with a career-changing performance by Steve Carell” and Justin Chang in his review for Variety agrees, writing: “Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum give superb performances in Bennett Miller’s powerfully disturbing true-crime saga.”
With the convincingly intimidating scowls sported by Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and Steve Carell, Foxcatcher’s newest poster reflects the film’s dark and heavy atmosphere.

Foxcatcher is a psychological drama directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (Moneyball) and starring Golden Globe winner Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo, Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave and Sienna Miller.The film was written by E. Max Frye and Academy Award nominee Dan Futterman.
Foxcatcher tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral.
Based on actual events, Foxcatcher is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy.
Rated R for some drug use and a scene of violence, Foxcatcher opens in theaters nationwide November 14, 2014.
