For a while new I have been keeping an eye on Foxcatcher, a film based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz would lead to unlikely circumstances.

It’s not the story that caught my attention but the cast, it’s been a while since we seen both Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in full on serious mode and Carell in particular looks to be utterly fantastic in this. The trailer brings a very grim feeling to the whole film and has drawn me in totally to see this and having no idea how the story turns out, I’m all the more excited to see a true story film I know nothing about.

Direct by Bennett Miller, whose previous films Moneyball and Capote both got lots of Oscar buzz, I don’t see this film being any different, if he can replicate the quality of Moneyball I’m sold on going to see this.

Foxcatcher, directed by Bennett Miller and starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo is due for release un UK cinemas on 9th January 2015.
