Remember how hollow-eyed and gaunt-looking Jake Gyllenhaal looked in Nightcrawler. Well, it's already time to update your Gyllenhaal mental image, because now he looks like this for Southpaw. Now he will fight you and he will murder you if you call him "Bubble Boy."

The Antoine Fuqua-directed film sees the actor apparently doing a ton of crunches to play Billy "The Great" Hope, a lefty junior middleweight champ who it's said "loses everything in a personal tragedy and is forced to fight his way to redemption." His ultimate redemption? Finally making Hugh Jackman question if he has enough muscles and veins.
