‘The Fighter’ Premieres In Hollywood


Marky Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams were joined by a select group of guests at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for the LA premiere of their new film The Fighter. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals:

I’m totally not feeling Christian’s curly curls … at all. Marky Mark looked pretty good all clean cut and handsome. The Fighter smells to me like it’s trying to be this year’s The Wrestler. To be honest, Wahlberg plays the same character in almost every film so I’m thinkin’ I might have to take a pass on this one. If I do decide to check it out, it’ll be because I love Christian Bale’s work (curly hair, notwithstanding). I’m not sure I’m all that interested in watching a movie about a down and out fighter who battles his way back to the top of the heap. Meh. It’s been done to death. Still … as I said, Bale is a big draw. Is this movie for you? Will you be paying out the $$$ to see The Fighter in theaters?

    Can’t wait to see it! I like David O. Russel and all of these actors, so I am psyched. Plus I like inspirational/feel-good movies if they are done well. This looks like it’s going to be done well and more my cup of tea than The Wrestler.

    Ever since those pics came out of CB having lost all this weight for the role, I’ve been interested in seeing it. So yea, Bale will be my draw to see it!

    I saw this as a screening (I’m in the production community here in NYC)..I really liked it. Wahlburg was fine (and I don’t mind looking at his bod)…but Christan Bale is AWESOME as his brother and totally steals the show. He should get a oscar nod for it.I won’t give any more details b/c I don’t like to know much about movies before I see them. Trent, you def. have to see it! Plus overall enjoyable movie IMO.

    Definitely going to watch this movie. Mickey Ward and his 3 fights with Arturo Gatti still are some of the best fights I have ever seen. I agree about Marky Mark’s acting but I ADORE Christian Bale. Maybe the long hair is for a role but regardless, I love this man. More please.

    CB is my #1 but the curls definitely need to go. I’ll watch the movie just to see him while hoping it turns out to be good.

    Yeah, I wasn’t that interested in seeing this movie either, but then I learned this is a true story. Somehow, that makes a difference to me and now I’m more excited to see it.
