That makes total sense for fans of the powerful 1993 movie, Searching for Bobby Fischer, which was based on the true story of a young prodigy’s pursuit towards reaching the chess status of the legendary player. The poster above is Tobey Maguire, who will be portraying the chess champion in the film, Pawn Sacrifice. The movie is due out in September of this year.

Even without a trailer, this poster alone will likely spark quite a bit of buzz because of the naturally intriguing enigma of chess and, perhaps, the equally enigmatic mind of a master chess player. As is custom with anyone considered a genius (no matter the profession), people are captivated to understand how and why these individuals think the way they do.

Bobby Fischer is no exception.

Pawn Sacrifice will have a couple hours to reach an entertaining checkmate with the audience.
