Paramount aired a new trailer for David O. Russell’s The Fighter last night during the season finale of”Mad Men.” It’s for all dem high brow smarts peoples out there who love a good underdog Oscar bait film. Saying this movie is Oscar bait isn’t meant as a dig. I’m actually very excited to see it even though it’s not the most groundbreaking take on a boxer movie. Everyone in the cast looks like they’re on their game, especially Christian Bale who never fails to transform himself into a batsh*t crazy mess. I know nothing more about his performance than what I’ve seen in the trailer, but I’m calling his Supporting Actor nomination right now. The Academy loves it when actors lose weight and hair.
Check out the trailer below.
