Watch Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in the Foxcatcher Teaser

Last year Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher was considered an early Oscar contender, but then its release was delayed. Now it's back, with a new Oscar-friendly release date and, with it premiering at Cannes today, some fresh awards buzz. Starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, Foxcatcher tells the true story of an Olympic wrestler's relationship to the eccentric and eventually murderous millionaire John du Pont. Come this fall, no matter his chances of actually winning, expect at least 200 Oscar-forecasting columns to say, "Currently, Steve Carell is ahead by a nose."
