New Foxcatcher Poster Online
Channing Tatum's part of a tragic true story

After wowing audiences at the Cannes Film Festival, Bennett Miller’s Moneyball follow-up Foxcatcher is already blessed with the sort of healthy awards buzz most films have to wait until they’re on general release to receive. The new poster for the drama, featuring Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz, is below.

In the very real story Foxcatcher chronicles, chemical fortune heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) recruits wrestlers Schultz and his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo) with a tempting offer. The man has a dream of creating a winning US wrestling team for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. To that end, he’s created a state-of-the-art training facility on his estate and he wants the Schultz brothers to train the team.

Flattered by the attention and entranced by du Pont's luxurious world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as a father figure and grows increasingly dependent on him for approval. Soon du Pont's erratic behaviour and cruel psychological game-play begin to erode the athlete's already shaky self-esteem. Meanwhile du Pont becomes fixated on Dave, who exudes the confidence both he and Mark lack. Fuelled by du Pont's increasing paranoia and alienation from the brothers, the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen…

Foxcatcher has a November 14 release date set for the US, and is currently pencilled in for a December 25 slot in the UK. Given the buzz so far, could we soon be talking about "Oscar nominee Channing Tatum"? It might be headed that way.
