You may watch below the official trailer of Pawn Sacrifice, the upcoming drama movie directed by Edward Zwick and starring Tobey Maguire, Liev Schreiber, Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, Lily Rabe, and Robin Weigert:
He followed a dream. He became a legend.
Based on a true story.
Behind the genius lies the madness.
“In a gripping true story set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire. Also starring Liev Schreiber and Peter Sarsgaard, Pawn Sacrifice chronicles Fischer’s terrifying struggles with genius and madness, and the rise and fall of a kid from Brooklyn who captured the imagination of the world.”
I love this quote from the trailer:
“Bobby won’t crack, he will explode!”
Anyway, here’s the film poster:
(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
In 1972, Bobby Fischer faced the Soviet Union in the greatest chess match ever-played.
On the board he fought the Cold War, in his mind he fought his madness.
Have you ever played chess? Are you any good at it?
The release date of Pawn Sacrifice is set to September 18, 2015.
