We have your first look at Aaron Eckhart and Miles Teller in Ben Younger's third feature film Bleed For This. You do not get a really good look at Eckhart but a buff Teller is front and center in the image.

Exclusive: Paradigm has inked actor Cory Hardrict just as the American Sniper actor is eyeing a busy 2015. Hardrict is currently in theaters in Clint Eastwood’s Oscar contender, starring as fellow soldier ‘D’ opposite Bradley Cooper as real life Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle. He also stars with Emily Mortimer and James Badge Dale in the sci-fi thriller Spectral, which Legendary Pictures will release on August 12, 2016.
On the indie side Hardrict plays parallel roles in Destined, a Sliding Doors-esque tale of a young man who becomes a drug dealer and a successful architect in different destinies determined in one fateful instant. Hardrict is also executive producer on the drama helmed by writer-director Qasim Basir. He will also appear in Car Dogs with Octavia Spencer and in Brotherly Love, about a promising Philadelphia high school basketball player dealing with the pressures of hood fame.
