About the Film
Role: Billy Hope, a boxer whose life falls apart as his career progresses
U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.
U.S. Release Date: July 31, 2015
Why? Christian Bale’s weight yo-yo-ing for The Fighter (2010) helped him win an Oscar. Gyllenhaal’s bulking-up under the helming of Antoine Fuqua could help him do the same.
Why not? Something feels… off? Besides, Carol and The Hateful Eight seem like the big hopefuls for The Weinstein Co. this year.
