The first trailer for Bleed For This starring Miles Teller (Whiplash) as real life boxer Vinny Pazienza, aka The Pazmanian Devil, who defied the odds to make one of the greatest comebacks from a career/life ending injury.
Here’s the films full synopsis:
BLEED FOR THIS is the incredible true story of one of the most inspiring and unlikely comebacks in sports history. Miles Teller (Whiplash, Divergent) stars as Vinny “The Pazmanian Devil” Pazienza, a local Providence boxer who shot to stardom after winning 2 world title fights. After a near-fatal car accident leaves Vinny with a severed spine, doctors tell him he may never walk again. With the help of renowned trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), Vinny becomes a legend when he not only walks again, but miraculously returns to the ring to reclaim his title belt only a year after the accident.
If Bleed For This is as good as the first trailer looks, Teller may once again be looking at award nominations for his performance as Pazienza.
Bleed For This hits screens November 23rd 2016.
