Sony Pictures Classics has released the second teaser trailer for their big fall season awards contender Foxcatcher, which ends with star Channing Tatum bashing his head into a mirror for a scene that caused real-life injuries. The 22 Jump Street star trades laughs for a much more serious role as an Olympic hopeful striving to win his first Gold medal. He plays real-life wrestler Mark Schultz, whose trainer John du Pont, played by Steve Carell in a career defining performance, ended up killing Mark's brother in cold blood. Their story is told in this thrilling new drama, which is in theaters this fall. Check out the latest footage from Foxcatcher, which also features an almost unrecognizable Mark Ruffalo as former wrestler Dave Schultz.

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers.

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave. Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother.

Flattered by the attention and entranced by du Pont's majestic world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as a father figure and grows increasingly dependent on him for approval. Though initially supportive, du Pont's mercurial personality turns and he begins to lure Mark into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens to undermine his training. Soon du Pont's erratic behavior and cruel psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete's already shaky self-esteem. Meanwhile du Pont becomes fixated on Dave, who exudes the confidence both he and Mark lack, knowing that these are things even his money cannot buy. Fueled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen.
