Check out the picture and let us know your thoughts.
"Southpaw" is directed by Fuqua and written by Kurt Sutter. The movie also stars Rachel McAdams and comes out sometime in 2015 (probably towards the end of the year just in time for Oscar season).

Looks like Thanksgiving came early. The Jurassic World trailer wasn't supposed to premiere till Thanksgiving night but the full trailer is online now.
I have to say it looks pretty good and it has me excited to see it. It looks like it has some good action and some cool looking new dinosuars.
