It seems like every year we get at least one boxing movie and this year’s big entry in the genre is Bleed For This, based on the true story of Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza. Pazienza won the light heavyweight title and seemed poised to become boxing’s next superstar but a terrible car accident left with a serious spinal injury that made it doubtful he would even walk again, let alone fight. Pazienza refused to give up and fought through a brutal recovery process to reenter the ring. Miles Teller plays Pazienza and Aaron Eckhart co-stars as his trainer, Kevin Rooney while Ciaran Hinds and Katey Sagal play Pazienza’s parents. Teller looks like he got into boxing shape for this movie and hopefully we get more Whiplash style Teller and not Fantastic Four Teller. It’s out on November 4th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
