Trailer Alert – Southpaw

Plot – A boxer fights his way to the top, only to find his life falling apart around him.

Release Date:  31st July 2015


  • Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler)
  • Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers)
  • Forest Whitaker (Last King of Scotland)

Director: Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer)

Highlight of the Trailer: The fights look very realistic.

What Looks Good? Gyllenhaal’s performance.

What Looks Bad? We have seen this idea before.

Summary: As I am not a big fan of boxing I will be more interested in seeing how the serious side of the story is handled. I think it would be fair to believe the Oscar buzz around this film and is it possible for Gyllenhaal to give a better performance than Nightcrawler.
