Pawn SacrificeBobby Fischer, the brilliant and complicated chess master, is the subject of yet another movie. "Pawn Sacrifice" traces Fischer's rise from child prodigy to the world-famous player who took on Soviet master Boris Spassky.

A new trailer focuses on Fischer (Tobey Maguire) and Spassky's (Liev Schreiber) 1972 chess battle, which became much more than just a game — it was a Cold War showdown that pitted the United States against the Soviet Union. But Fischer struggled with the pressure, and was tormented by the very genius that made him one of the greatest chess players ever.

"Pawn Sacrifice" looks like a typical, well-made biopic in the vein of "The Imitation Game" or "A Beautiful Mind," and the performances seem top-notch.

"Pawn Sacrifice" opens September 18.
