Jake Gyllenhaal has bulked up in an epic physical transformation to play boxer Billy "The Great" Hope in Antoine Fuqua's fighter drama SOUTHPAW.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day and The Equaliser), SOUTHPAW follows the battles of a boxer (Gyllenhaal) who fights his way to the top, only to find his life falling apart around him.

The film, which also stars Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Rita Ora and Naomie Harris, will be released in Australian cinemas on August 20.

Eminem debuted the trailer, which features a taste of his new music, on his Twitter account this morning.
