If you're wondering why Jake Gyllenhaal bulked up? It wasn't to play the joker. Here we have the first clip for his new movie Southpaw. The film is about a world champion boxer whose life falls apart after his wife dies in a tragic accident. He dives into an alcoholic haze until he daughter is taken away and his house is repossessed. It isn't until he hits rock bottom and turns to a washed up former boxer for help that he has a chance at redemption.
The film is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and also stars Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Rita Ora, and Victor Ortiz.
