The trailer for the new boxing movie Southpaw has just been released, and it looks like it’s going to be awesome!
There’s been a shortage of decent boxing movies lately. There was Grudge Match, which was distinctly average, even though I really WANTED to love it. The Fighter was great but 5 years ago. Rocky Balboa was okay. Before that, what was there? Gone Baby Gone, which was brilliant, but way back in 2004.
Southpaw stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker, with Rita Ora and Rachel McAdams, and is written by Kurt Sutter, who made Sons Of Anarchy. That is one solid line up.
Check the trailer out.
It looks to be more than just a bellend-to-hero story, and seems to have a bit of a gangster element to it as well.
I can’t wait to see it.
