If you live in Los Angeles and are interested in watching The Fighter, there's a fantastic event this weekend you definitely won't want to miss. Paramount is hosting an early screening of David O. Russell's boxing film The Fighter, which I've seen and is damn good, along with an "artistic celebration" at the &Still store down the street, with "limited edition screen prints, limited edition t-shirts and customized boxing gloves." To sign up, all you've got to do is visit here and RSVP. The screening is at 6PM on December 4th and the event after is called "Blood, Sweat and Art: An Artistic Celebration of 'Irish' Micky Ward." Info below!
The Fighter (watch the trailer) stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale as brothers and boxers Mickey Ward and Dickie Eklund. Here's more info on the event, courtesy of Gallery 1988 blog: "Join us on Saturday night, December 4th at 6PM at the Regent Theater at 614 N. La Brea for a free screening of the film, The Fighter, which tells the tale of Boston boxer Micky and the whispers for a Best Picture nomination are rather loud. Which is awesome… Then after the movie's screening, join us down the street at '&Still.' There will be beer, soda and snacks and it's 21 and over. So, keep that in mind." I'll be there, and if you see me, say something!
