FIGHTING – 5 Movie Clips, a Featurette and the Trailer

     April 3, 2009

Written by David Lane

Opening on April 24th is “Fighting” and it stars Channing Tatum, Terrence Howard, Brian White,Luis Guzmán and Zulay Henao.

The film is about a small-town boy named Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) who has come to New York City with nothing. Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership.

As Shawn’s manager, Harvey introduces him to the corrupt bare-knuckle circuit, where rich men bet on disposable pawns. Almost overnight, he becomes a star brawler, taking down professional boxers, mixed martial arts champs and ultimate fighters in a series of staggeringly intense bouts. But if Shawn ever hopes to escape the dark world in which he’s found himself, he must now face the toughest fight of his life.

While this genre has been done many times before, hopefully”Fighting” is more than Channing Tatum walking around shirtless for an hour and thirty minutes. We’ll all know soon enough.
