Jake Gyllenhaal looks to be putting on an acting clinic in “Southpaw,” the Weinstein Company’s upcoming awards hopeful.
In the latest clip of the film to be released, the actor is suave, charming and fearsomely vulnerable as his character, Billy “The Great” Hope, fields questions at a press conference. Fresh off yet another boxing victory, the championship winner has won an astonishing 43 consecutive matches and is relishing the moment. As the clip teases, however, he may soon meet his match in fellow boxer Miguel Escobar (Miguel Gomez).
Watch the clip above. “Southpaw” his theaters July 24.
