Official Poster for David O. Russell's 'The Fighter' Also Unveiled
Yep, we've got even more from David O. Russell's The Fighter (watch the trailer) to share with you today following that fantastic TV trailer from last night. It's a big day for Paramount, kicking off quite a prominent awards campaign for this flick, but from the looks of it, it deserves it! Yahoo has debuted the official poster for the boxing drama starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, both of whom are seen on the poster. It's simple, it's got a little bit of style, it's unique, I like it. Sure, it's pretty much blank besides the two guys, but I'm still into it, maybe because I'm just looking forward to this so much. Anyway, check out the poster!
A look at the early years of boxer 'Irish' Micky Ward and his brother who helped train him in the mid-80s.
The Fighter is directed by David O. Russell, of Spanking the Monkey, Flirting with Disaster, Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees as well as the never-released project Nailed previously. Russell took over the project after Darren Aronofsky dropped out a few years ago. The script was co-written by Paul Tamasy (Air Bud, Walking Across Egypt) and first-timer Eric Johnson with Scott Silver (Johns, The Mod Squad, 8 Mile). Paramount is bringing The Fighter to limited theaters starting on December 10th with an expansion the following week.
