From director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and writers Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and Richard Wenk (TThe Mechanic) comes Southpaw. It tells the story of Billy "The Great" Hope, Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World. When tragedy strikes and he loses it all, Billy enters the battle of his life as he struggles to become a contender once again and win back those he loves. The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer, which features stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams and Naomie Harris.
Southpaw is about tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption. Billy "The Great" Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called "Southpaw," consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting. One fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy's fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos.Read More
