We finally have the first trailer for the upcoming David O Russell film, The Fighter. The film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is a boxing film that tells the true story of Dicky Eklund and “Irish” Micky Ward. Early screenings have generated a lot of Oscar buzz and with a solid cast and Russell behind the camera, this is definitely a film to keep your eye on during Oscar season.
The Fighter is a film that I’ve been looking forward to for a while and after watching the trailer, I can safely say that I am still very eager to see it. It looks like Cinderella Man (the Russell Crowe film) but better.
Hopefully we get some more coverage on the film in the coming months. If we do, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. Until then, mark off December 10th on your calendar and get excited for The Fighter.
