Following the debut of the first trailer for The Fighter people were already predicting Oscar nominations, both for the film and Christian Bale, who once again appears to have skipped a few meals for a role.
To help continue the awards season buzz Paramount released a new trailer with the recent season finale of Mad Men. The audience is apparently full of “high end, smart, savvy” people who Paramount hope will see the film and tell all their smart and savvy friends about.
You can watch the new trailer below:
The Fighter follows boxer “Irish” Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. His Rocky-like rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky (Christian Bale), a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded in life after nearly being KO’d by drugs and crime. Amy Adams also stars as the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character.
Directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings), The Fighter will be released December 10th alongside The Tourist and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
