As director Bennett Miller said, the whole premise behind 'Foxcatcher' -- that of a disturbed millionaire coaching a team of Olympic wrestling hopefuls at his home without knowing a thing about the sport -- was "funny...until it's not, and then it's not funny at all." Following the film's NYFF debut, a new 'Foxcatcher' trailer premiered online to show off the powerhouse performances from Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, and provide a full-length look at this early Oscar contender.

"It’s the kind of thing that’s funny until it’s not, and then it’s not funny at all," 'Foxcatcher' director Bennett Miller told reporters at New York Film Festival of his latest film. The man behind 'Capote' and 'Moneyball' tackled the story of John du Pont, the disturbed successor of the du Pont family fortune who became obsessed with two Olympic wrestling brothers and tragically shot one to death on the grounds of his estate. 'Foxcatcher' was pegged early on as a prospective Oscar contender, and the director and cast members Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave went a bit more in-depth on its creation.

A couple of hours ago the trailer for Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' leaked online, and then was pulled. It seems there's a good reason for that. The film, which stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, is nowhere near finished and the picture has been delayed from December 20 into 2014 so Miller can finish editing the film.

As suggested by the first-look photo from Bennett Miller's upcoming 'Foxcatcher,' funnyman Steve Carell is an unlikely choice to portray real-life murderer John DuPont, the heir to the DuPont Chemical fortune who killed Olympic wrestling champion David Schultz. However, it is this unexpected casting that melded with both Miller's vision for his lead and the film.

Mark Ruffalo has been a great actor who's had smaller parts in big movies and big parts in small movies, but it looks like 'The Avengers' is going to change all that. His latest project could be Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' where he would be playing against Steve Carell and 2012's poster-boy Channing Tatum.
