The trailer for the upcoming boxing biopic Bleed For This starring Miles Teller has just been released.
Bleed For This is based on the true story of world champion boxer Vinny Pazienza (played by Teller) who came back to the ring against insurmountable odds, after being involved in a life-threatening car accident.
The trailer gives us a good indication of the tone of the film and it definitely looks like it will be inspirational above all else.
However, almost all boxing films have that inspirational theme, so we’ll just have to wait and see if this film adds anything more than what’s expected.
The film looks like it has a perfect storyline to be an Oscar contender as long as the acting and directing are on point.
With Miles Teller in the lead though, it could very well get Oscar contention as he’s proven he can be an excellent actor after his performance in Whiplash.
Bleed For This is out 23 November 2016 in the USA so it’s possible that it will get a release in Australia some time around then.
The inspirational story of World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza, who after a near fatal car crash, which left him not knowing if he’d ever walk again, made one of sports most incredible comebacks.
