Channing Tatum Smashes A Mirror With His Head In The New 'Foxcatcher' Trailer

It's intense.

We reached the halfway point of 2014 this week, but there haven't been any early awards contenders outside of a few standouts. Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," however, is one of the few.

And in the new teaser trailer for the true-life drama, which stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell, it's easy to see why.

Tatum, who takes center stage in the new preview, plays Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler who becomes the obsession of deranged heir John du Pont (Carell). If you haven't heard the true story behind "Foxcatcher," you can read about it here.

Miller, who previously directed "Moneyball" and earned an Oscar nomination for "Capote," won best director at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and many early reviews raved about the performances throughout.

Carell has clearly undergone a serious physical transformation here, but it's the intensity of Tatum's performance that really shines here.

I mean, just look at this.

"Foxcatcher" hits theaters on November 14, 2014.
