southpaw_trailer_1Jake Gyllenhaal is currently one of my must-see actors. His most latest films, Nightcrawler, Enemy, Prisoners (just to name a few) are all challenging pieces of work, and he has much more slated for this year. Our first look is this trailer by for Antoine Fuqua’s Southpaw. Gyllenhaal bulked up about 15 pounds of muscle to play the role of a boxing champ with a tragic backstory, fighting to win back his daughter, and this first trailer looks like another winning role for an actor who is pushing the limits of his craft.

Check out the trailer – Southpaw hits theaters July 31st.
