The Fighter Trailer Featuring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale

The Fighter Trailer: Mark Wahlberg Is Fightin' Irish

The trailer for The Fighter features Mark Wahlberg's abs, a practically unrecognizable Christian Bale, and plenty of inspirational music. The film chronicles the real-life rise and fall (and rise again) of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward as he trains for the pros in the 1990s. In his corner (literally), he's got his big brother Dickie Eklund (Bale) and cute cocktail waitress Charlene (Amy Adams). Unfortunately, a big match doesn't go as hoped, and Ward finds himself involved in a Rocky-esque battle to prove himself to the boxing world. To make matters worse, his brother's penchant for drugs and trouble puts a strain on their relationship and Micky's dreams.

The film has been in the works for what feels like forever, so I'm willing to bet the studio has a lot riding on David O. Russell's latest. But when The Fighter hits theaters on Dec. 10, will it prove to be an Oscar contender or just another motivational sports flick? Decide for yourself when you watch it after the jump.

I am such a sucker for a boxing movie. There is no way I'm going to miss this. Christian Bale's Oscar nomination is guaranteed (I hope!)
