Channing Tatum and Steve Carell star in new Foxcatcher trailer: watch now

A new trailer has arrived for psychological drama Foxcatcher , in which Channing Tatum's amateur wrestler prepares to push himself to the limits in his pursuit of Olympic Gold.

Spurring him on is Steve Carell's unnerving mentor, the eccentric millionaire John du Pont, a figure that Tatum's brother, Mark Ruffalo, is rightly suspicious of.

Ruffalo is the golden boy of the family, and this could be Tatum's big chance to step out of his shadow once and for all. But what game is the manipulative Du Pont really playing…?

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Pretty intense stuff, we think you'll agree, with Tatum looking to have produced a particularly impressive turn. And then there's Carell, stealing his scenes with genuinely creepy panache…

Based on a true story and directed by Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher will open in the UK on 25 December 2014.
