Bleed for This Trailer Puts Miles Teller in the Boxing Ring

30 June 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Boxing may not be nearly as popular as it used to be, but the sport has a long history of athletes who have inspired some incredible movies. Raging Bull told the life story of iconic pugilist Jake Lamotta, while the beloved Rocky was loosely based on a little known fighter named Chuck Wepner, who shocked the world by going all 15 rounds against the great Muhammad Ali n 1975. Later this year, another legendary boxing tale will be told when Bleed for This hits theaters, with the first trailer debuting today.

Bleed For This is the incredible true story of one of the most inspiring and unlikely comebacks in sports history. Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent) stars as Vinny "The Pazmanian Devil" Pazienza, a local Providence boxer who shot to stardom after winning 2 world title fights. After a near-fatal car accident leaves Vinny with a severed spine, doctors tell him he may never walk again. »

Bleed For This trailer: Miles Teller enters the ring

30 June 2016 12:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The trailer for the upcoming boxing drama Bleed For This, which is set to star Miles Teller, has just hit the web. The film, which releases in the United States this November, also stars Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Aaron Eckhart, Ted Levine, Kimberly Howe and Amanda Clayton, and is directed and indeed written by Ben Younger (Prime, Boiler Room).

Here’s the plot.

In Bleed for This, Miles Teller stars as Pazienza in one of sport’s greatest comeback stories: the true-life tale of how the Rhode Island brawler tragically lost almost everything just as he reached the pinnacle of his profession and how he defied medical science and common sense to return to the ring and win another championship belt. Aaron Eckhart costars as renowned boxing trainer Kevin Rooney, and Katey Sagal and Ciaran Hinds play Paz’s understandably concerned parents.

Look out for this in Us cinemas from November 4th. »

Miles Teller takes on a big boxing comeback story, as he brings the story of Vinny Pazienza to the screen...

Boxing films aren’t a bad way to get critical acclaim, and we wonder if Miles Teller might quietly have his eye on a gong or two for his role in the upcoming Bleed For This.

In the movie, Teller plays Vinny Pazienza, who returns to boxing following a serious injury in a 1991 car crash. Based on the real-life Pazienza's incredible comeback story, Teller stars alongside Aaron Eckhart in the movie, that’s directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room).

The first trailer for the movie has just been released, and you can see that right here…

Bleed For This doesn’t have a release date in the UK yet, but it’s due out in America in November.

Miles Teller Defies Common Sense to Box in ‘Bleed for This’ Trailer

29 June 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Miles Teller defies common sense to return to the boxing ring as Vinny Pazienza in the first trailer for Open Road’s “Bleed for This.”

The trailer focuses on Pazienza, known as ‘The Pazmanian Devil,’ coming back from a 1991 car wreck that left him with a broken neck and the admonition, “With this severe of an injury, one bump, one fall, any kind of movement, and your spinal cord could sever.”

Teller is having none of it as he begins working out with a metal halo still on his head.

“I know exactly how to give up — it’s easy,” he tells Aaron Eckhart, who portrays trainer Kevin Rooney. “I’m not done. I got more in me.”

Pazienza eventually won three more titles and went on to retire with a 50-10 record.

Producers are Bruce Cohen, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Chad Verdi and Noah Kraft. Martin Scorsese is executive producing »

29 June 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Open Road Films has debuted the first official trailer for a movie called Bleed For This, starring talented young actor Miles Teller as World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza. Paz's story is fascinating - he started to rise in the boxing world in the early 90s, winning the junior middleweight world title, but broke his neck in a serious car accident. Doctors told him he may never walk again, but Paz returned to the ring thirteen months after the accident and made one of the greatest comebacks in the history of boxing. The full cast includes Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Aaron Eckhart, Ted Levine, Kimberly Howe and Amanda Clayton. As expected, Teller looks fantastic in this, giving us yet another boxing movie to cheer for this fall. Here's the first official trailer for Ben Younger's Bleed For This, originally debuted by People: The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza »

29 June 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From Southpaw to Creed, Hands of Stone to Ben Younger’s Bleed For This, Hollywood’s boxing genre is witnessing something of a mini resurgence, with audiences flocking to gritty biopics that chart the rise (and potential fall) of those brave fighters that stepped into the ring.

Next in line to receive that spotlight is Vinny Pazienza (Aka The Pazmanian Devil), a fierce World Champion boxer whose remarkable comeback story will underpin Younger’s upcoming feature, Bleed For This. It’s one that places Whiplash breakout Miles Teller in the star role, and the blistering first trailer has now landed online ahead of the movie’s November bow.

Miles Teller Enters the Ring in Bleed for This Exclusive Trailer

29 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Vinny Pazienza was a five-time world boxing champion, and the colorful brawler nicknamed "The Pazmanian Devil" had plenty of career highlights in the ring. But the bout that may best exemplify his heart and grit is his 1995 title fight against the legendary Roy Jones Jr., in which he was pummeled to a bloody pulp and knocked out in the sixth round. Three times he was sent to the canvas by the champion, and three times, he courageously shook off the blows and tried to continue.

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »

Forced to deal with a severed spinal chord and a career lying in tatters, it is Aaron Eckhart’s hearty trainer Kevin Rooney that lends The Pazmanian Devil with another shot at the limelight, helping Pazienza back on his feet and, remarkably, to reclaim his title belt on a year after the accident. »
