Southpaw follows the story of Billy “The Great” Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal) whose perfect life turns a sudden downward spiral when a tragic accident leaves his wife dead. Without a home and with his daughter now in the custody of Child Services, Billy tries to turn his life and luck around, after he receives help from a washed-up former boxer (Forest Whitaker).
Southpaw was directed by Antoine Fuqua from a script penned by Kurt Sutter and Richard Wenk. The film features Eminem on one of its soundtrack and you can hear the snippet in the trailer. The film also stars Rachael McAdams, 50 Cent, Rita Ora, Naomie Harris, and is due to hit cinemas later this year on July 24.
