Paramount Pictures have released the first movie trailer for David O Russell’s "The Fighter."
The movie is about the story of Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale), a real life boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded after a run of drugs and crime. Shepherded his half-brother “Irish” Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), Dicky had a Rocky-like rise to the world lightweight championship. Ward fought throughout the mid-’80s and ’90s, but he’s best remembered for three battles with Arturo Gotti, two of which went down as the greatest in the history of the sport. Amy Adams plays “a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper” who ends up dating Wahlberg’s character.
"The Fighter" stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, Jack McGee, Jenna Lamia and has a December 2010 release.
