First Patriotic U.S. Poster Release for Channing Tatum’s Movie ‘Foxcatcher’.

People magazine released the first movie poster of Channing Tatum’s latest film ‘Foxcatcher’.

Although the online buzz is that the poster sucks – I think it’s I-ight.  The film was premiered at this year’s Cannes film festival and had glowing reviews so I was surprised to hear that the poster was not well liked.

A French Teaser poster was released earlier this year and now we are seeing the first US marketing poster.  Personally I kind of like it, it’s better than “i-ight”.  Just in time for the 4th of July, the poster shows a menacing Channing Tatum in front of a worn, well saluted American flag back drop….and yes the US will compete in the world cup today as well.  Maybe that’s why this poster works for me, I’m filling up with American pride…..*sniff*, *sniff*

Foxcatcher will show us the serious sides of not only Channing Tatum but also Steve Carell.  Carell plays millionaire DuPont in the film and if both Carell and Tatum appear to look weird it’s because they are both wearing prosthetic make up.

In an interview with People magazine Tatum said that this was not a fun movie,

“It was not a fun experience at all, It was grueling, and it was painful, but it was worth it.”


FOXCATCHER is a psychological drama directed by Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller (MONEYBALL) and starring Golden Globe winner Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo, Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave and Sienna Miller. The film was written by E. Max Frye and Academy Award nominee Dan Futterman. FOXCATCHER tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on actual events, FOXCATCHER is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy.
