When I spoke to Mark Wahlberg in July when he was promoting The Other Guys, he told me The Fighter was “the best film that I’ve been in.” After watching the just released trailer, I think he’s probably right.
The Fighter is directed by David O. Russell (Nailed, Three Kings) and it’s based on the unbelievable but true story of boxer “Irish” Micky Ward and his half-brother Dicky. Starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Melissa Leo, the film looks to be a sure bet come awards season as Bale looks like he’s undergone a physical transformation that has to be seen to be believed.
Trust me. Watch the trailer. You’ll wish you could see the movie today. The Fighter gets released December 10.
