As a Western Pennsylvanian, I have to admit this trailer strikes a chord with me. No, I was never a boxer nor did I even rescue a kidnapped sibling. But hey, I am more than happy to be engrossed in the scenery of this story about someone who did. Looks like it was beautifully shot. Also, the cast promises to bring an all star, A Game performance.
Christian Bale is carving out a niche for himself as a hardscrabble, dark, gritty kind of character (I’m thinking The Fighter, 3:10 To Yuma, The Machinist, etc.). We will see how he handles it!
