HeyUGuys, courtesy of Momentum Pictures, has managed to finagle the UK quad poster for David O. Russell’s predicted Oscar frontrunner The Fighter.
The film tells the story of Dicky Eklund, played by Christian Bale, a real life boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded after a run of drugs and crime. Mark Wahlberg plays his half-brother “Irish” Micky Ward who rises to fame in the world lightweight championship despite facing adversity at every step. It’s your classic Academy Award winning boxing movie formula.
The Fighter is due in cinemas February 4th.
The Fighter is the inspirational true story of two boxing legends. Dicky Ecklund (Christian Bale) is a former boxing legend whose life has become shattered by drug abuse whilst Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), his half brother, has become the town’s fighter and fading hope for a champion. But with Micky losing fight after punishing fight, it takes iron-willed Charlene (Amy Adams), to help him split with his family, pursue his own interests and train without his criminal brother.?
