Whiplash-4091.cr2

Bleed for This” seems like it could’ve been the alternate title for Miles Teller‘s Whiplash, but it’s actually the name of Teller’s next movie. Once again, Teller plays a talented young man who pushes himself to extreme lengths for his passion. Only this time, he’s focused on boxing instead of drumming.

The first image from Bleed for This shows Teller as real-life boxing champion Vinny Pazienza, looking battered and bruised in the ring. Bleed for This is directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room) and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. Get your Bleed for This first look after the jump.  Read More »

Whiplash international trailer

As the domineering music conservatory teacher at the center of Whiplash, J.K. Simmons spews vile, mean, even brutal dialogue. Most of it is aimed at the the young drummer and would-be jazz great played by Miles Teller. Is the teacher just using a bit of old-school motivation, or is he really out of his mind? The guy’s propensity to throw things suggests the latter, but the student isn’t exactly balanced either. Each drives the other a little further over the edge.

This Whiplash international trailer isn’t rated “red” by the MPAA, because it comes out of France rather than the US. But it does feature some of the cursing Simmons spits at Teller. This is just the barest hint of how ugly he gets, though. Seriously, if you’re a fan of Simmons, especially when he shows his mean side, this movie is an absolute must-see. Read More »
