The trailer for Southpaw, a boxing drama from director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) has debuted and you can view it below!

Southpaw is a story about tragedy, loss and the painful road to redemption…Billy The Great Hope (Gyllenhaal) is the reigning Junior Middleweight Champion with a beautiful family, home and financial security, Billy is on top both in and out of the ring until a tragic accident leaves his wife dead and sends him into a downward spiral. His days now an endless haze of alcohol and prescription drugs, his daughter taken by Child Services and his home repossessed by the bank, Billy’s fate is all but sealed until a washed up former boxer named Tick agrees to take the bereaved pugilist under his wing so long as he agrees to his strict ethos. Relentless and utterly committed to a fighter that thinks as much as he throws punches, Tick rebuilds Billy into a new man: one that is agile, fearsome and uncompromising in the ring while thoughtful, loving and disciplined outside of it. Now, as he works to regain custody of his daughter and mounts a professional comeback, Billy must face his demons head-on as he learns that, sometimes, your greatest opponent can be yourself.

The movie co-stars Rachel McAdams, Rita Ora, Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and boxer Victor Ortiz. It is written by Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) and Richard Wenk (The Equalizer).

The film will be released on July 31st.
