Once again the second trailer for a hotly anticipated film as shown significant improvement over the first clip, with "The Fighter" to be the latest film to step up its game not long before its release.
The original clip was kind of meh... making us wonder why folks like director David O. Russell, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo would stoop to the level of a color-by-numbers sports drama. But the second draft promotes a much more thoughtful and serious film about family and loyalty and self-determination, and it shows Christian Bale zeroing in on a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
