Antoine Fuqua new film - "SOUTHPAW" successfully released

The Fund congratulates Antoine Fuqua, Director and Board Member, on his success of SOUTHPAW with Jake Gyllenhaal, released on July 24th. 

"Southpaw outperformed its estimates, taking in $16M for the weekend. That puts some suave in the cuts of the mixed reviews which have put a pall on all the "this is your year" talk for Jake Gyllenhaal for Best Actor."

"Southpaw, directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker and 50 Cent, went beyond expectations and grossed $16.5 million for a fifth place finish, largely due to a strong female draw and diverse audiences (45% of ticket buyers were African-Americans and Latinos)."
