Trailer of the Week - The Fighter

I have been following The Fighter for a long time and Mark Wahlberg went through some rough times to get this movie in production. Wahlberg trained for two years to play the role of Micky Ward and had trouble getting financial backing for the film. Actors Brad Pitt and Matt Damon were , at one time, attached to play Micky's brother Dickie, but the role went to Christian Bale. Bale ended up loosing a lot of weight as you can tell in the trailer.

Boston fighter "Irish" Mickey Ward and how he was helped to the world lightweight championship by half-brother Dicky Eklund. Eklund once decked Sugar Ray Leonard and 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.

The Fighter Hits theaters on December 10, 2010.
