The trailer was fabulous but Foxcatcher is out for Oscars 2013. Sony Pictures Classics announced today that the pic isn’t ready yet for this year and will be bumped to 2014. Why do I get the feeling every movie is getting out of 12 Years a Slave’s way?
Foxcatcher is directed by Bennett Miller and stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. The true story from Wikipedia:
Mark Schultz is the brother of the late Dave Schultz, who also won a Freestyle Wrestling Gold Medal at the 1984 Olympics. The Schultz brothers and the Banach brothers became the first brothers in U.S. history to win Olympic Wrestling titles in the same Olympics. However, the Schultz brothers are the only brothers in U.S history to win Olympic and World titles. The Schultz brothers won more NCAA, U.S. Open, World, and Olympic titles than any American brother combination in history. On January 26, 1996, Dave Schultz was murdered by multimillionaire paranoid schizophrenic John Eleuthère du Pont, the founder of “Team Foxcatcher”. Four months after Dave’s murder, Mark competed in UFC 9 and won.
