Yesterday, we showed you the trailer for “Foxcatcher,” the upcoming movie about the murder in 1996 of Olympic wrestler David Schultz by heir John du Pont, which is set to debut next month at the Cannes Film Festival.
Now, we have a release date for the film. According to Variety, “Foxcatcher” will be released by Sony Pictures Classics on Nov. 14 in the U.S., nearly a year after its originally planned release last fall.
The release, six months after its Cannes bow, indicates that the filmmakers and studio see “Foxcatcher” as a possible awards contender.
Here’s the trailer again:
The film, directed by Bennett Miller (best known for “Capote” and “Moneyball”) and stars Steve Carell as du Pont, Mark Ruffalo as Schultz and Channing Tatum as Schultz’s brother Mark.
