TV trailer for The Fighter

During last night’s season finale of Mad Men in the US an interesting trailer/sneak-peek for David O Russell’s The Fighter was aired during one of the ad breaks.

The movie is the based on a true-story drama about boxer “Irish” Micky Ward and his unlikely path to become world lightweight champion.

It has a whole bevy of stars from Mark Wahlberg who plays Micky, to Christian Bale as his brother, to Amy Adams who plays his suffering girlfriend.

Judging by this new video Paramount is aiming this at awards with vigour. The US will see the film December 17th, so we can expect it shortly after.
