The Fighter Trailer/Synopsis

December 10

Directed by David O'Russell ( I Heart Huckabees. Three Kings ) Starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams, Jack McGee, Frank Renzulli. Swiss cinematographer Hoyt Van Hotema ( The Lives Of Others ) handled the lensing.

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. Script was written by 8 Mile's Scott Silver and Paul Attanasio (The Bourne Ultimatum).

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
