FILM REVIEW 'Foxcatcher'

Carell is already earning raves for his performance, including being named as a potential Oscar contender.

In a review at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where the film had its world premiere, The Hollywood Reporter's chief film critic Todd McCarthy deemed Carell's portrayal of John du Pont "a career-changing performance."

THR's awards analyst, Scott Feinberg, added the title to his early list of films that have a shot at landing a best picture Academy Award nomination. 

Foxcatcher is set for wide release in the U.S. on the busy weekend of Nov. 14, opening against Universal's comedy sequel Dumb and Dumber To, Sony/Columbia's Brad Pitt World War II film Fury and Relativity's Beyond the Lights
