    Default The Micky Ward movie

    Supposedly its been getting good reviews, was nominated for Golden Globe best picture and should get some Oscar nominations (Christian Bale's supposed to be close to a lock for best supporting actor).

    Comes out Dec 17th, anyone planning on going to see it?

    Not until February in the UK unfortunately but yeah will definitely see. Should be intriguing, wonder how far into his career theyll go? Bale is a sign of quality wheras Wahlberg when the lead actor the total opposite.

    It ends with his WBU title win against Shea Neary in England. Obviously they are gonna play up the WBU as a "genuine" world title. Was a great fight though.

    Shame it will miss the Ward-Gatti stuff but the film looks heavy on his relationship with his bro...

    Great trailer. I feel like I've just watched the whole movie.

    I wonder many light crew member or boom mic operator Christian Bale yelled at in making of this movie.

    Who the hell was that black guy that 'had twenty pounds' on him

    Looks great though. I'll make my mates watch it when it comes out on DVD and when they ask me who he was, I'll show em the Augustus fight

    Then I'll show em the Gatti fight

    I'll go see it, looks like it'll be good. Anyone know why it misses the Gatti trilogy?

    I'm guessing that was in reference to the Zab Judah fight.

    I'm going to go see it when it comes out for sure. But it is BS they left out Gatti and are playing up some WBU garbage title. Thats a fuckin joke. Ward fought for the World Title ONCE. Against Vince Philips and lost via tko from a cut.

    Its a boxing movie, of course we're all going to see it, I watched Gladiator for fucks sake

    Meant to be a really good film, obviously certain things will be glossed over.

    I heard that all the punches are real, no fake pulling like in other movies. Looking forward to seeing it.
