"Director Bennett Miller...has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. 'Foxcatcher' is an enormous film," Jessica Kiang wrote in the opening paragraph of her review from the Cannes Film Festival. To say that she loved the film would be an understatement, and certainly the rest of us here are eagerly anticipating the film, that is undoubtedly going to be in the Oscar conversation this fall.

Foxcatcher

"Director Bennett Miller...has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. 'Foxcatcher' is an enormous film," Jessica Kiang wrote in the opening paragraph of her review from the Cannes Film Festival. To say that she loved the film would be an understatement, and certainly the rest of us here are eagerly anticipating the film, that is undoubtedly going to be in the Oscar conversation this fall.

And Sony Pictures Classics wants to make sure that talk doesn't die out in the summer months, dropping a brand new teaser trailer for the drama. Starring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall, the movie tells the based-on-a-true-story account of an eccentric millionaire who takes Olympic hopeful wrestling brothers under his wing, leading to tragic consequences. And yes, this is a powerful tale rich in themes of ambition, hubris and so much more.

"Foxcatcher" arrives on November 14th.
