Following the critically and commercially successful “Creed” last year, any boxing drama feature set to come out faces an uphill challenge. Two films plan to face it this year though, the first and most high-profile being the Robert DeNiro and Edgar Ramirez-led “Hands of Stone”.
Waiting in the wings though is “Bleed for This,” a quieter little indie drama starring Miles Teller as Vinny Pazienza, a promising light middleweight boxer who suffered a broken neck in a car accident. Overcoming the odds, he managed to get back to full health so he could box again. Check out the new trailer for the film which premiered today.
