For some reason, I was wondering if they would make a movie called “Southpaw”, but have a right handed fighter.
Fight movies can be really good, or really bad. A recent good one, “The Fighter”, which featured Mark Wahlberg, and was based on the life of Mickey Ward.
From the looks of the trailer, “Southpaw” looks good, but we’ll just have to watch and see.
From director Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) and writers Kurt Sutter (SONS OF ANARCHY) and Richard Wenk (THE MECHANIC) comes SOUTHPAW – the story of Billy “The Great” Hope, Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World. When tragedy strikes and he loses it all, Billy enters the battle of his life as he struggles to become a contender once again and win back those he loves. SOUTHPAW stars Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Rita Ora, Naomie Harris and Victor Ortiz.
