Southpaw

All trailers can be considered spoilers, but some trailers show a little bit too much footage, revealing almost the entire plot point of a film. But the trailer for Antoine Fuqua‘s (The Equalizer, Training Day) Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, shows too much, yet somehow leaves us wanting more.

Following a string of recent hits such as Prisoners and Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal’s looks to continue to define his career with another strong performance by undergoing training to get into shape as boxer who must overcome his demons and fight for his daughter’s love. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer for Southpaw.

Penned by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, Southpaw also stars Forest Whitaker as his strict coach, 50 Cent as a boxing promotor, and Rachel McAdams as Gyllenhaal’s wife. As exciting as a film that uses a script from Sutter, and the cast featured is, the trailer does reveal an awful lot of material almost to a point where you already know how the film is going to end, especially when there is a cute kid to help motivate the character.

But the real story here is Gyllenhaal. The months of training to get that body, not to mention learning the art of boxing, the actor looks like he is primed and ready for some awards.

Southpaw opens in theaters July 31, 2015.

From acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and starring Academy Award® nominated Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) comes a story of tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption… Billy “The Great” Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion whose unorthodox stance, the so-called “Southpaw,” consists of an ineloquent, though brutal, display of offensive fighting… one fueled by his own feelings of inadequacy and a desperate need for love, money and fame. With a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy’s fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos. Relentless and utterly committed to a fighter that thinks as much as he throws punches, Tick rebuilds Billy into a new man: one that is agile, fearsome and uncompromising in the ring while thoughtful, loving and disciplined outside of it. Now, as he works to regain custody of his daughter and mounts a professional comeback, Billy must face his demons head-on as he learns that, sometimes, your greatest opponent can be yourself.
