Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Tough In Southpaw

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.
