Mark Wahlberg's Rocky turn so to speak. The true story of fighter Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg) on the road to a World Welterweight title with the assistance of his half-brother Dicky Ecklund (Christian Bale). Christian Bale, always brings dedication to a role - as exhibited by The Machinist - but this is taking it to another level. Hopefully this is the year Bale walks home with Oscar gold. Overall the trailer, like its boxing genre ilk relies on material done before, but I still look forward to this one.
