The UK poster for true story, Bleed For This starring Miles Teller has been released by Icon Film Distribution.
The film which is released on December the 2nd, is based on the harrowing yet inspirational story of Vinny Pazienza (Miles Teller), one of few American boxers to hold world titles in three different weight categories, who suffered a near-fatal car accident at the peak of his career. Told he would never walk again, Vinny spent months recovering in a neck brace until, against doctors’ orders and without their knowledge, he returned to the gym. With the support of trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart), “The Pazmanian Devil” made a triumphant return to the ring just over a year later.
Bleed For This is directed by Ben Younger (Boiler Room, Prime) and has Martin Scorsese as executive producer. The film also stars Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, Ciaran Hinds and Ted Levine.
Bleed For This is out in UK cinemas December 2nd.
