Two new stills from Oscar-nominated director Bennett Miller's ("Capote," "Moneyball") upcoming "Foxcatcher" have arrived. The images feature Channing Tatum in short-shorts, a bearded Mark Ruffalo and a scarily unrecognizable Steve Carell.

Based on a true 1996 murder case that Miller has been developing as a film since 2005, the film stars Tatum as Mark Schultz and Ruffalo as his brother David. Both are Olympic Wrestling Champions who visit John du Pont (Steve Carell), a multimillionaire and paranoid schizophrenic who has erected a wrestling training facility named Foxcatcher on his personal estate in Pennsylvania. In 1996, Du Pont was accused of murdering one of his wrestlers, whom he was convinced was part of a conspiracy to kill him. 

"Foxcatcher" also stars Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall.  The screenplay is by E. Max Frye ("Something Wild") and Dan Futterman ("Capote").

The film will world premiere at AFI FEST 2013 in November followed by a December 20 stateside release via Sony Pictures Classics
