Following on from the new, Channing Tatum-centric poster for Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, Sony Pictures Classics is clearly betting on the 22 Jump Street star – already being talked about as a potential awards nominee – as a mainstream draw for the film. He’s once again the focus of this latest teaser trailer for the drama.

In the very real story Foxcatcher chronicles, chemical fortune heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) recruits wrestlers Mark Schultz (Tatum) 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 tragedy…

With Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave, Anthony Michael Hall and Brett Rice among the cast, Foxcatcher is currently aiming at a January 9 release date in the UK via Entertainment One.
