"It was eight years ago when I read [the script], and it was so much," Channing Tatum told Variety about his latest drama, Foxcatcher. "It was so complicated, and I don't even know if I understood it then. To get to come in and actually try to give it a run was pretty intimidating."

Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher will screen during the Hamptons International Film Festival as the Saturday Centerpiece Film, playing at Guild Hall (158 Main Street, East Hampton) on Saturday, October 11th.

Based on true events, the film follows Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum), who is looking to step out of his brother Dave's (Mark Ruffalo) shadow during his quest for gold. When an eccentric multi-millionaire, John du Pont (Steve Carell), offers to let Mark train at his estate, his journey to the 1988 Seoul Olympics takes a dark and tragic turn as du Pont lures the wrestler into an unhealthy lifestyle that threatens his Olympic dreams.

Foxcatcher star Mark Ruffalo will attend the Festival premiere and will also take part in the HIFF "A Conversation With..." series on Sunday, October 12th at 2 p.m. at Bay Street Theater (1 Bay Street, Sag Harbor).

Sony Pictures Classics will release Foxcatcher on November 14, 2014.

The 22nd Annual Hamptons International Film Festival will take place over Columbus Day Weekend, from Thursday October 9th, through Monday, October 13th.

Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
