New Foxcatcher Images Highlight the Quiet Intensity of Bennett Miller’s Dark Drama

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A batch of new Foxcatcher images have landed online from director Bennett Miller’s (Capote) upcoming dark drama, and they do an excellent job of evoking the tone of the film.  Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, an eccentric millionaire who decided to host an Olympic Wrestling training camp on his grounds despite having no experience with the sport himself.  The crux of the film revolves around du Pont’s relationship with Olympic Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and in particular du Pont’s mentorship of the younger brother Mark, who lived in the shadow of his more successful brother.  I caught the film at Tiff and it’s magnificent.  The performances by Carell, Tatum, and Ruffalo are positively transcendent, as each actor wholly disappears into his role.  Don’t miss this one, folks. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Foxcatcher images, »

2015 Oscars: An Updated Best Actor Prediction Snap Shot

20 October 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Three spots in the 2015 Oscars Best Actor race are pretty much locked up. Those would be Michael Keaton (Birdman), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything). In my opinion, that's also the order of their likelihood of winning... right now. The two other slots aren't so easy to figure with so much left to be seen. Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) seems a strong contender though I'm not as sure about his chances as much as some others are, largely because of the competition he faces. His chances remain high, though, which is why he occupies my #4 slot for now. In fifth I had Jack O'Connell (Unbroken), but there's a little movie on the rise right now you may have heard of and hopefully seen (or intend to see) called Whiplash and not only is the film securing itself a spot in the Best Picture ranks, but »

Foxcatcher review: Steve Carell and Channing Tatum's chilling drama

20 October 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Bennett Miller; Screenwriter: E Max Frye, Dan Futterman; Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller; Running time: 134 mins; Certificate: 15

Money can't buy you love, but can it earn you self-validation? It's a theme that's explored in the fascinating Foxcatcher, an involving tale based on a chilling true story that boasts enthralling, career-changing performances from Channing Tatum and Steve Carell.

Directed with great measure and restraint by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher revolves around depressed Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz (Tatum) and his relationship with mega-wealthy loner John Du Pont (Carell). It's John's dream to put together a wrestling team to compete in the next Olympics and he manages to recruit Mark, although his brother and fellow wrestler Dave (Mark Ruffalo) proves harder to catch.

As the relationship between the trio develops, often in unhealthy ways, we're gripped by what John's underlying motivations for his apparent altruism might be. »

Off the Carpet: So let's talk about that crowded Best Actor Oscar race

19 October 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's start with a broad assessment that may or may not be true, but can be taken as close enough for the purposes of this column: there are four Best Actor slots spoken for. What are they? Steve Carell in "Foxcatcher," Benedict Cumberbatch in "The Imitation Game," Michael Keaton in "Birdman" and Eddie Redmayne in "The Theory of Everything." Only one of those films, mind you, has opened and screened for the Academy ("Birdman"). But if I were a betting man, I'd say that quartet is secure. So who slides in besides? First and foremost, we've been in this place at least since the Toronto Film Festival, when Cumberbatch further solidified himself after "The Imitation Game" debuted at Telluride and Redmayne jumped onto the scene as part of a new wave of contenders that included "Nightcrawler's" Jake Gyllenhaal and "St. Vincent's" Bill Murray. But as one of the »

Channing Tatum: 'I Have Never Considered Myself a Very Smart Person'

18 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Channing Tatum never thought of himself as intellectual - he struggled with Adhd and dyslexia in school. "I have never considered myself a very smart person, for a lot of reasons," he tells T, The New York Times Style Magazine. And that made his teen years difficult. "Not having early success on that one path messes with you," he admits. "You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down syndrome, and you look around and say, 'Okay, so this is where I'm at.' Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, 'All right, I'm »

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week. Foxcatcher We’ve already seen some strong promotional material from the Foxcatcher marketing campaign, but this new trailer digs into the predicament more than any other--and to great effect. There’s always been something unnerving about Steve Carell’s John du Pont, but having a clearer understanding of his relationship with Channing Tatum’s character and knowing how Mark Ruffalo fits into all of this makes the situation downright disturbing. In fact, thanks to that especially ominous score, the trailer almost has a horror-like vibe to it.   Citizenfour For those who don't know enough...

Sienna Miller and Steve Carell premiere Foxcatcher at London Film Festival

17 October 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sienna Miller and Steve Carell attended the premiere of Foxcatcher at the 58th BFI London Film Festival last night (October 16).

The 32-year-old actress shimmered in a silver striped floor-length gown while co-star Carell looked smart in a navy blue suit.

The 52-year-old actor is transformed in appearance for his role as eccentric chemical fortune heir John Du Pont in the true tale about his relationship with two wrestler brothers Mark and David Schultz (played by Tatum Channing and Mark Ruffalo respectively).

When du Pont offers Mark a place on his new training ground, relations between all three take a tragic turn.

Miller, who stars as Mark's wife Nancy Schultz, spoke to reporters at the Leicester Square screening about her recent comeback to acting.

"I'm really looking forward to it all," she explained. "I really wanted to work hard. I didn't work for a year after my daughter was born, and »

Channing Tatum on the Cover of T Magazine

Is Channing Tatum more brawns than brains?

According to the hunky Foxcatcher star, he's more of the former. As he reveals in the Oct. 19 issue of T, The New York Times Style Magazine, he struggled with A.D.H.D. and dyslexia during his childhood. As a result, he was prescribed stimulants and performed poorly in school. "I have never considered myself a very smart person, for a lot of reasons. Not having early success on that one path messes with you," he says. "You get lumped in classes with kids with autism and Down Syndrome, and you look around and say, 'Ok, so this is where I'm at.' Or you get put in the typical classes and you say, 'All right, I'm obviously not like these kids either.' So you're kind of nowhere. You're just different. The system is broken.

Lff 2014: Foxcatcher Review

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Bennett Miller.

Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave.

Running Time: 135 Minutes

Synopsis: A riveting, tense and unsettling exploration of the power of money and obsession from the acclaimed director of Capote and Moneyball.

 

Foxcatcher is pretty good. Oddly, that’s all. It’s just sort of there, like a lifeless planet being orbited by the dazzling satellites of Carell, Tatum and Ruffalo. They shine down upon a rock on which little else happens.

Here is the true life story of one of America’s wealthiest men and self-styled patriot, John du Pont (Carell) who takes Olympic wrestling gold medalist Mark Schultz (Tatum) under his wing to lead a team of wrestlers to further glory and national pride. Schultz’s growing intensity, the arrival of his brother and trainer Dave (Ruffalo) and du Pont’s increasingly erratic behaviour cause their world to unravel with tragic results. Sort of. »

Channing Tatum started out as a stripper — and it may have helped him achieve Hollywood success. “Personally, I like being pushed into corners,” Tatum said. “It forces you to be creative.
