Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the director for Training Day and The Equalizer, Southpaw is the story of Billy “The Great” Hope, played by Jake Gyllenhaal.  Billy “The Great” Hope is the reigning Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World.  He’s living the life of a successful boxer – an impressive career, a beautiful wife and daughter and a lavish lifestyle. But that all falls apart when his manager, Jordan Mains, played by “50 Cent” drops him.

With the help of Titus “Tick” Wills, played by Forest Whitaker, Billy must redeem himself by reevaluating his lifestyle and working through emotional discord in his expected rise back to the top.

While the story is tired and relatively cliche, the performances by Jake Gyllenhaal and Forrest Whitaker are what make the movie a success.  It debuted worldwide on July 24, 2015 and is worth seeing in theaters.

  8. We have been browsing online more than three hours today, but I in no way found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and
    bloggers made excellent content material as you did,
    the internet could be a lot more useful than in the past.

    an additional platform. I might be awesome if you could point me in the direction of an effective platform.

  11. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  12. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your content seem to be running
    from the screen in Internet explorer. I’m unsure should
    this be a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility having said that i figured I’d post to let you know.

    issue fixed soon. Kudos
