The Bleeder (2016)
Sunday 13th August 2017
A fascinating drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner, the riveting underdog story The Bleeder arrives on Blu-ray and DVD 21st August 2017 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Liev Schreiber gives an extraordinary and committed performance as Chuck Wepner, the man who went fifteen rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali and became the real-life inspiration for Rocky Balboa. But before all that, Chuck was a liquor salesman and father with a modest prizefighting career whose life changed overnight when, in 1975, he was chosen to take on The Greatest in a highly publicised title match. It's the beginning of a wild ride through the exhilarating highs and humbling lows of sudden fame-but what happens when your fifteen minutes in the spotlight are up?
The Bleeder also stars Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid's Tale), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Naomi Watts (The Ring, Twin Peaks), and Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show).
