I kid, because 50 Cent is sort of loathsome and I had to opt out of Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ about fifteen minutes in. It was so bad. It was so bad that I axed it knowing there was some prison dick shots coming up. That’s bad. Anyway, the trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s boxer flick Southpaw has dropped. You can watch it below.
If you don’t want to actually sit through this film, just watch the trailer. It’s a microcosm of the actual film. It’s the damn Clift Notes. It seemingly just leaves out the very end (wins the fight, gets his daughter back I’m guessing?). Why does Hollywood assume that we’re all slack-jawed hammerheads who need everything spoon fed to us? Hey, I sort of understood Interstellar! I know things! I’m learned and patient enough not to need the movie explained to me so I’ll go see the movie! And so are many others, I’m sure. Hollywood’s the worst.
Is Jake’s dialogue…dubbed… or something? Is that him actually speaking? If so, give that dude an Oscar now cuz’ wow, he really worked on the “from the streets” patter.
And I should probably mention “wow” at the boxing body, but it’s always distracting admiring a jacked guy when there’s blood pouring out of his gob.
Watch the Southpaw trailer (and check out some more screen shots) below.
