A One-Legged Dog

Every aspect of Paramount's marketing campaign for David O. Russell's The Fighter (12.10) appears too glossy and inspirational in a friendly, affable kind of way. The trailer looks just okay and this one-sheet is its equal. 

The Fighter, on paper, sounded like a gritty handheld The Wrestler with the usual self-destruction and slumming and family issues, but to this point, aside from a probable standout performance from Christian Bale, this looks more like a soft-serve Ron Howard thing. 


  1. I definitely agree with you on the trailers that have been released so far, but I actually dig this poster. I don't think it shouts "inspiration" the way the initial footage does.

  2. Even without your dog to haul around, the DoggyRide Original trailer comes in extremely handy as a cargo bicycle trailer for taking supplies to the beach or on extended cycling trips. When not using the DoggyRide Original Trailer... Dog Trailers
