Tearjerker Indie Drama

Well Go has released the first trailer for the tearjerker indie drama Cardboard Boxer, starring Thomas Haden Church as the titular pugilist struggling to make ends meet with the help of a new pen-pal and a trusting new friend (Terrence Howard).

Also co-starring Boyd Holbrook, Rhys Wakefield, and musician Macy Gray, the film marks the directorial debut for Jackass producer Knate Lee, who also wrote the script.

Cardboard Boxer will be made available through iTunes on Tuesday, September 13 and will also be released in select theaters starting September 16. Check out the trailer below.

Willie, homeless and on skid row, is coerced by two teens to fight other men for cash. Now involved in a violent world he can’t understand and with few human connections beyond a girl’s diary he found, Willie struggles to find a way out. Starring Thomas Haden Church (SIDEWAYS), Terrence Howard (EMPIRE), Boyd Holbrook (NARCOS) and Macy Gray, CARDBOARD BOXER is an unflinching look at the lives of the displaced and forgotten members of society.
