Based on the incredible true story, and starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, two time Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner The Fighter triumphs in the ring from 20th June 2011, when released on Blu-ray and DVD by Momentum Pictures.

A powerful and uplifting drama, The Fighter tells the real life story of boxer 'Irish' Mickey Ward (Mark Wahlberg, The Departed) and his trainer brother Dick Eklund (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight), chronicling the brothers' early days in the rough streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, through Eklund's battle with drugs and Ward's eventual world championship bout in London.

This inspirational underdog story has been described as Rocky meets The Blind Side meets The Departed and tells the motivating tale of two brothers who, against all the odds, come together to train for the historic title match that will unite their fractured family, redeem their pasts and at last, give their hard-luck town what it's been waiting for: Pride.

Directed by Academy Award® nominee David O. Russell (Three Kings), The Fighter won two Academy Awards® for Best Supporting Actor and Actress (Christian Bale, Melissa Leo), and nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams), Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing. The film is the second highest grossing boxing film in the UK ahead of Million Dollar Baby and second only to Rocky Balboa.

Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (Frozen River) give knockout performances as Mickey's troubled older brother, Dicky Eklund and Ward's mother. These roles have earned both Bale and Leo an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and SAG for Best Supporting Actor and Actress. Also starring in the film is Academy Award® nominee Amy Adams (Doubt) who plays Mickey Ward's girlfriend and future wife, Charlene.
