The Fighter finally hits the big screen in the new year as Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale join forces in the boxing movie which is directd by David O. Russell
Wahlberg stars in Paramount Pictures’ inspirational docudrama exploring the remarkable rise of Massachusetts-born lightweight title winner “Irish” Micky Ward.
The movie follows a determined pugilist whose career in the ring was shepherded by his loyal half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale) — a hard-living boxer-turned-trainer whose own career in the ring was nearly sent down for the count due to drugs and crime
Perennial underdog Irish Micky rebounded from a disheartening series of defeats to win both the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title thanks to a fierce combination of determination and hard work.
The Fighter is released 4th February. Take a look at a couple of clips from the film:
