Director Antoine Fuqua’s long-developed boxing drama will now get a prime summer release date on July 31st of this year, opening opposite the Point Break remake and the Ryan Reynolds-fronted sci-fi thriller Self/Less.  As this is shaping up to be a testosterone-heavy weekend, I imagine one of these other films will subsequently shift. In Southpaw, Gyllenhaal plays a left-handed boxer who wins a title but suffers various tragedies in his personal life, all while trying to win back the love of his daughter.  The cast also includes Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, and Naomie Harris, and as you can see below, Gyllenhaal underwent a pretty dramatic ...The post Jake Gyllenhaal-Fronted SOUTHPAW Set for Release on July 31st; Sacha Baron Cohen’s GRIMSBY Pushed to 2016 appeared first on Collider.
