It was called the Match of the Century.
Control the board with the new poster from Bleecker Street’s Pawn Sacrifice.
In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire.
Also starring Liev Schreiber (Boris Spassky) and Peter Sarsgaard, Pawn Sacrifice chronicles Fischer’s terrifying struggles with genius and madness, and the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world with the greatest chess match ever played.
The film had its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
Alex Billington of First Showing.net wrote, “There’s no better praise than to say I was fully engaged in Pawn Sacrifice from start to finish, fascinated by the politics and the sport, but also intrigued by Bobby Fischer and his peculiar mind. »

I caught Pawn Sacrifice at last year's Toronto Film Festival and in my review I called it "a good movie, though nothing altogether ground-breaking or entirely revealing." Suffice to say, it's a'ight, which is why it wasn't snatched up by any of the major studios and will be hitting select theaters come Sept. 18 courtesy of Bleeker Street, who've just released the film's first poster. Set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire and it plays out pretty much like your standard sports story with a focus on the tortured soul at its core. Liev Schreiber, Sophie Nelisse, Peter Sarsgaard, Lily Rabe, Robin Weigert, Michael Stuhlbarg and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick all co-star. Check out the poster below and you can read my full review right here. I expect we'll have a trailer later today or tomorrow. »

The idea of a Magnificent Seven remake was initially met with jeers and cynism, but now that Sony Pictures continues to beef up its cast with an all-star ensemble, public opinion is swaying. The latest addition to join this remake of a remake is Peter Sarsgaard, and if his body of work is any indication, he's going to make a great antagonist. Variety first reported the news of Sarsgaard, who's known for roles in Lovelace (playing a scumbag pornographer), Green Lantern (as the mentally unstable Hector Hammond), Jarhead, Orphan, and Flightplan, among many others. According to the trade, he'll play the film's main villain, that of the robber baron named Bartholomew Bogue. The original Magnicent Seven, released in 1960 as a remake of director Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai, followed seven gunslingers who protect a small Mexican village from a gang »
Antoine Fuqua has already lined up an impressive cast for his remake of the remake of Seven Samurai, meaning The Magnificent Seven. He has brought on Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Haley Bennett, Byung-Hun Lee and Matt Bomer. And now we can add another person to that cast list: Peter Sarsgaard. He will be taking on the villain role of the piece, playing robber baron Bartholomew Bogue. Sarsgaard has played villains in the past, and it can go either way with him. Let's just hope it isn't this again. Photo: Warner Bros. Sarsgaard is to play Bartholomew Bogue, a robber baron whose hired thugs kill the husband of a woman who hires a group of mercenaries (the titular seven) to take back the small town that has become Bogue's stomping grounds. The script was most recently reworked by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) following up on »

After months of casting on MGM and Sony’s remake of The Magnificent Seven, the Western is finally gearing up to roll cameras later this month. Today brings word that perennial baddie Peter Sarsgaard is in final negotiations to play robber baron Bartholomew Bogue, the villain of the film whose cronies murder the husband (Matt Bomer) of a young woman (Haley Bennett), leading her to hire an unruly band of mercenaries to take back her town. Simultaneously, though, word has it that Jason Momoa has dropped out of the project, leaving one supporting role unclaimed.
Sarsgaard has made a career out of playing nasty psychopaths, from John Lotter in Boys Don’t Cry to the controlling Chuck Traynor in Lovelace, so he’s well-suited for the part of a murderous Western baddie.
As for Momoa, Deadline reports that he departed the pic after feeling like he “didn’t have enough to do, »
