Kelly Frey & Casey De La Rosa ~ The Fighter
Inspired by an incredible true story, The Fighter is the stirring comeback tale of the unlikely boxing champ – Irish Micky Ward [Mark Wahlberg], and his half-brother, Dicky Eklund [Christian Bale], who decided that, no matter the odds against them and no matter their differences, they weren’t going to give up on their shared dreams without a fight.
The Fighter will be released by Paramount Pictures on December 10 in select cities, and nationwide on December 17.
