Sweet Trailer…’The Fighter’

Was going through the hot sheets (read: Sites We Like) and came across this trailer. Frankly I had forgotten about it but now I’m glad that it’s back on my radar. The bizarre teaming of Christian Bale (in another shocking change in his physical appearance) and Mark Wahlberg (of all people right?) seem to have an intersting chemistry for their upcoming film The Fighter. We had written about this last year and I’m actually quite eager to see this. Have a look at the trailer and let me know what you think…

The latest effort from David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees) tells the true tale of Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) and how he went on to win the lightweight championship with the help of his half-brother Dicky (Bale). Eklund once fought Sugar Ray Leonard and nearly went the distance against the boxing legend before forfeiting his career to drugs and crime. He redeemed himself by training Ward through his Rocky-like run to the title.

After seeing the trailer, it looks suspiciously like Mark Wahlberg’s Invincible set in a boxing ring, but that may just be me. I’m still interested to see it. How about all of you? Anyone like this so far?? The Fighter is set for release December 10 this Fall.
