Watch: ‘Pawn Sacrifice’ — Tobey McGuire At Top Of His Game In Chess Biopic

Tobey McGuire takes the role of chess prodigy Bobby Fischer, who was the youngest ever grand master in his day, which was the early 1970s — notably in the middle of the Cold War.

Pawn Sacrifice was directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, Legends of the Fall) and also stars Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Repo Man) as Boris Spassky, the Russian champion who Fischer beat in a celebrated showdown, which revealed Fischer to be just slightly whacked out, to put it mildly.

Also featuring relative newcomer Lilly Rabe (All Good Things), this Bleecker Street production is due in theaters in September 18.
