Jake Gyllenhaal’s ‘Southpaw’ Gets Star-Studded Private Screening at Cannes

Jake Gyllenhaal's upcoming boxing movie “Southpaw” got an early, star-studded private screening at Cannes on Friday.

Adrien Brody, Michelle Rodriguez and Antonio Banderas were among the celebrities at the event aboard a private yacht.

Festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux introduced the sneak screening, which was also attended by singers Mary J. Blige and Charli XCX, as well as models Adriana Lima and Dita Von Teese, by praising Gyllenhaal’s performance as “one of his best.”

Fremaux, a self-proclaimed sporting enthusiast, said the movie beautifully captures a sport that usually doesn’t read well on the bigscreen.

I've seen the trailer and plan on seeing the movie. He's a good actor and feel like he has picked some good movies but just hasn't gotten awarded yet for his work.

i agree he should have been at least nominated last year for nightcrawler.

i also saw the trailer in the movie and i would definitely see it as soon as i get a chance he is one of my favorite actors.
