A brand new trailer has surfaced online for Jake Gyllenhaal sports movie, Southpaw. The film, which is apparently based on the life of Eminem will see Jake Gyllenhaal face the same sort of struggle as Marshal Mathers, only replacing the rapping with boxing.
His acting in Nightcrawler was by far his best-to-date His sleazy, creepy, sociopathic, and unpredictable character got stuck in my head for a long time after the film. He nailed that role, and he played it with ease and perfection. So, when the first image of him was released, showing him all tanked-up, I still had Nightcralwer’s, Lou Bloom in my head. I know I’m not the only one who had to check that picture a couple of times to make sure that it was him
I am thinking that this is the performance that will earn him the Oscar. Not that Oscars matter because they are very obviously fixed – Gyllenhaal didn’t even get nominated for Nightcrawler.
I am not even a bit fan of sports movies but I can honestly say that I am really looking forward to Southpaw..maybe it might inspire me to get off my arse, and get fit…..doubt it though.
Enjoy the trailer
