Jake Gyllenhaal Is Swole and Emotional In the Southpaw Trailer


Eminem premiered this new trailer for Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The only description I knew about it previously involved Gyllenhaal’s ridiculously ripped torso.

In the movie, Gyllenhaal plays famous boxer Billy Hope, who loses custody of his daughter after his wife (Rachel McAdams) is shot (not a spoiler, it’s in the trailer).

Eminem’s music is featured in the trailer (“some new stuff I’ve been working on,” he says on his YouTube page) and he was initially supposed to star in it. The film, directed by Antoine Fuqua, also stars Forrest Whitaker, 50 Cent and…oh snap…Rita Ora. It’s out July 31.
