Trailer for Southpaw on TrailerAddict.

When I hear the words “directed by Antoine Fuqua” I know that I am in for a gritty and cerebral ride and Southpaw executes Fuqua's style perfectly.If you couple that with the amazing writing of Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) it definitely makes Southpaw a can't miss.  Southpaw not only uses Fuqua's dark approach to redemption storytelling but also brings together an amazing cast lead by Jake Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal underwent an amazing transformation after his dramatic physical change for Nightcrawler which is another solid film from Gyllenhaal. Will Southpaw be another hit for Fuqua along the lines of Training Day or The Equalizer?
