Looks like Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale will both deliver knockout performances in their upcoming film, The Fighter. The trailer for the David O'Russell-directed film features Marky Mark's abs, a super skinny, almost unrecognizable Christian, and plenty of motivational music. Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams plays Mark's love interest in the drama.
The film is based on a true story and chronicles the rise and fall (and rise again) of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward (Mark) as he realizes his dream and trains for the pros in the 1980s.
The Rocky like saga unfolds as one of Micky's matches goes wrong and his brother Dickie Eklund (Christian) goes to jail from drugs, straining their relationship and Micky's fighting aspirations.
