Steve Carell Pressures Channing Tatum in ‘Foxcatcher’ [WATCH VIDEO]

Steve Carell is one of the most celebrated comedians in this generation, but in the fourth and final trailer of "Foxcatcher," he will not be making you laugh. Instead, he will be giving you chills. Read on to know more about this movie preview.

Success stories are common film themes in Hollywood, which tell both fictional and nonfictional tales of a person going through all the tribulations before he reaches the golden, fulfilling end. They are known to be inspirational mediums, but where there is good, there is also bad. In “Foxcatcher,” Steve Carell, an actor known for his exquisite comedic performances, stars as the on-screen version of real-life billionaire John du Pont as he becomes the sponsor of Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, played by Channing Tatum, and pushes him to the extreme.

“A coach is a father. A coach is a mentor. A coach has great power over an athlete’s life.” —- the last trailer of the 1980s biopic features a Steve Carell who is overwhelmed by his desire towards victory as he imposes direct pressure on Mark Schultz (Tatum) that lead to the state of the Olympic athlete in an absolutely tormenting state. In doing so, he causes a huge rift in the relationship of the Schultz brothers (with Mark Ruffalo playing Dave Schultz).

Seconding the feature of Screen Rant, the fourth trailer evidently depicts the avid shift in du Pont and Schultz’s coach-athlete relationship.  It first started off as a “seemingly healthy and mutually beneficial” partnership that over time and much bombardment turned into a “psychological warfare and physical violence.” Noting all four trailers now, each never failed to represent the element of suffocating intensity with its every theatrical preview.

So far, the movie has been receiving compelling, positive feedback according to The Hollywood Reporter. Helmed by Bennet Miller, the movie adaptation that tackled the true-to-life murder of Dave Schultz has been receiving high praises coming from notable film critics accentuating the acting performances, focusing on the change in Carell’s character. He’s been labeled “positively creepy” as he undertakes the spotlight and turns the biopic into a psychological thriller. “Foxcatcher” opens in theaters on Nov. 14, 2014.

That concludes our preview of the fourth “Foxcatcher” trailer. Follow Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates on upcoming films.
