I’m literally getting ready to head out to the Atlanta advance screening of The Weinstein Company’s new movie SOUTHPAW starring Jake Gyllenhaal, 50 Cent, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams and Rita Ora. Can’t wait to see this!
Southpaw hit theaters nationwide Friday July 24th!
Synopsis: 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.
