You probably won't want to step into a ring with Jake Gyllenhaal after seeing the first image for his forthcoming film Southpaw.
The Weinstein Co. has released its first peek at the boxing drama with a promotional photo of Gyllenhaal showing off his impressive physique.
Director Antoine Fuqua's film centers on a boxer who finds success with the gloves on but is having major issues in his personal life. Rachel McAdams, Rita Ora, Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris and 50 Cent co-star. The script was written by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter.
