Watch The Sneak Preview For The Fighter That Aired During The Mad Men Finale
There’s been a lot of promotion behind The Fighter already even though we’re still nearly two months from its release date. This wouldn’t be uncommon if it were going to be a season staple like Harry Potter or Tron: Legacy, but for a small drama you don’t usually see the kind of attention David O. Russell’s latest is getting. Then again, it is Oscar season.
This sneak peek comes courtesy of AMC, who showed it off during last night’s Mad Men finale. It looks pretty much like the rest of the trailers we’ve seen, with the music and editing really capturing the confusion of the character, so that you feel like you yourself are getting punched in the face by all of it. It’s a good trailer, but you won’t see anything you haven’t seen before. Scope it out below and below that the official synopsis.
Mark Wahlberg stars in Paramount Pictures' inspirational docudrama exploring the remarkable rise of Massachusetts-born lightweight title winner "Irish" Micky Ward. A determined pugilist whose career in the ring was shepherded by his loyal half-brother, Dicky (Christian Bale) -- a hard-living boxer-turned-trainer whose own career in the ring was nearly sent down for the count due to drugs and crime -- perennial underdog Irish Micky rebounded from a disheartening series of defeats to win both the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title and the WBU Light Welterweight title thanks to a fierce combination of determination and hard work. David O. Russell directs from a script by8 Mile's Scott Silver and Paul Attanasio (The Bourne Ultimatum).
