A first clip is here from Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." As you may recall, the film was originally looking at a fall 2013 debut, but was then pushed back due to a "huge editing process." It's now premiering at Cannes, set to play the competition lineup next week.

A first clip is here from Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher." As you may recall, the film was originally looking at a fall 2013 debut, but was then pushed back due to a "huge editing process." It's now premiering at Cannes, set to play the competition lineup next week. 

This minute-long glimpse reconfirms what we suspected from the trailer; the film, a biographical drama, looks to boast some really impressive performances, particularly from a transformed Steve Carell, who plays paranoid schizophrenic John Du Pont, a wealthy gym owner and trainer who murdered Olympic champion wrestler Dave Schultz (here played by Mark Ruffalo). The film centers on Schultz' brother Mark (Channing Tatum), a fellow Olympic wrestling champion.

"Foxcatcher" arrives in stateside theaters via Sony Pictures Classics at the peak of Oscar season: November 14.
