Southpaw (2015) – Trailer # 1

Jake Gyllenhaal needs that Oscar bad.

Jake Gyllenhaal makes an early claim for the Best Actor Oscar race already. We don’t really trust Antoine Fuqua as he has only Training Day to show as a credible film under his belt. But in the new Jake Gyllenhaal we trust especially after his resurgence with Prisoners, Enemy and Nightcrawler. His transformation from a frail mad man to a pumped up professional boxer is remarkable and thats why in Jake we trust.
