With a few months left to February and the 2015 Oscars, there are some names swimming in everybody's head to win the prestigious award. McConaughey, Keaton and Cumberbatch just to name few. Which is nothing strange unless you put Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in the list, not because they're not great actors, just because the kind of movies we're used to see it are... well, not Oscar material I guess? And that doesn't mean they're not awesome, come on who hasn't laugh to dead with The 40 Year Old Virgin?!
Foxcatcher tell the story of Mark and Dave Schultz, two Olympic wrestlers and brothers and their relationship with John Eleuthère du Pont who was member of one of the most prominent family in the country. With his participation on the Cannes Film Festival this year and been nominated for one of the most acclaimed awards as the Palme d'or and the director Bennett Miller winning for best direction. With all this and debuting this week on the U.S theatres is fair enough say that Foxcatcher is one of the most anticipated movies of the season.
For Steve Carell and Channing Tatum this may be an strange territory but that doesn't mean they can't handle it. You just have to see the 3 trailers available for this movie and you will understand what I'm saying. The first one is like global vision of the panorama that the movie will bring you, a look of the 3 main characters (No, I'm not leaving Mark Ruffalo behind) and how is the relation between the 3 of them, which at the end in this particular case is the key to disaster. The second is a teaser that explore Channing's character and how he try to balance his relation with his brother and the man who's gave him a lifetime opportunity. In the third who is also a teaser, you can see Carell's developed a little more his character and his personality, and I dare to say all this just with seeing the trailers, I'm probably crazy!
The cards are on the table for everyone but we might have to wait to see if all this worth the effort and hard work that this actors have put into this project.
