The Fighter Hits UK Cinemas Today

The Fighter is now showing across the UK.

The Fighter cinema times are now available to view online, after the film made its debut in UK cinemas today, 4th February. Directed by David O. Russell, the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams.

The film follows the life of professional boxer “Irish” Micky Ward (Wahlberg) and his older half-brother Dicky Eklund (Bale). Amy Adams co-stars as a love interest of Ward, Charlene Fleming.

Micky Ward is a talented boxer but he has always languished in the shadow of his half brother Dicky, who famously knocked down Sugar Ray Leonard then lost it all to the ravages of drugs and crime. Trained by Dicky and managed by his monstrous mother Alice, Micky accepts lacklustre fights for scant rewards until he is persuaded to cut himself loose from his loved ones and punch above his weight for the first time in his life.
