A sneak peek at director David O. Russell’s The Fighter aired during Sunday’s “Mad Men” finale and you can now watch it using the player below. Opening in limited theaters on Dec. 10 before expanding wide on Dec. 17, the drama stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo and Jack McGee.
The film is about boxer “Irish” Micky Ward (Wahlberg) and his unlikely path to become world lightweight champion. Bale plays Dicky Eklund, Micky’s half-brother and a talented fighter who once went the distance with Sugar Ray Leonard in a title fight but then turned to crime and landed in prison. Then he turned his life around and helped his underperforming brother find the spark for a remarkable run that led to the world title.
