This holiday season get ready to see someone get their teeth knocked out and we’re not talking about that drunk uncle who always ruins family gatherings. We’re referring to David O. Russell’s latest film The Fighter which will be hitting theaters. It’s a boxing drama that stars Mark Wahlberg as the fighter in question and Christian Bale as his trainer and brother. Paramount has released three video clips from the movie to give us an idea of what to expect…
The powerful true story of professional boxers Dickie (Bale) and Micky (Wahlberg). Older brother Dickie does not suffer from a shortage of talent or confidence, but his lack of judgment and humility lead him down a path of self-destruction. After blowing his shot against one of the greatest fighters of his generation, Dickie descends down a dangerous road of drug addiction that robs him of his career, alienates his brother, and eventually lands him in jail. Meanwhile, discouraged from yet another defeat, younger brother Micky, whose talent never seems to match the size of his heart, vanishes into early retirement. But his itch to fight never goes away, and when a rehabilitated Dickie is released from prison and takes over as Micky’s trainer, Micky transforms himself from an underdog into a world champion prized pugilist.
