The Fighter

The Fighter

To celebrate the June 20 DVD and Blu-ray release of The Fighter, we are giving you the chance to win one of 10 pairs of tickets to an exclusive ring-side screening!

The world famous York Hall is the place to be on Thursday evening (TOMORROW at 6.30pm for a 7.15pm screening) as the historic boxing hall is transformed into a four screen cinema for a unique exclusive screening of The Fighter. Read on for your chance to win a pair of tickets to this knock-out event.

A powerful and uplifting drama, The Fighter tells the real life story of boxer ‘Irish’ Micky Ward  (Mark Wahlberg, The Departed) and his trainer brother Dick Eklund (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight), chronicling the brothers’ early days in the rough streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, through Eklund’s battle with drugs and Ward’s eventual world championship bout in London.

This inspirational underdog story has been described as Rocky meets The Blind Side meets The Departed and tells the motivating tale of two brothers who, against all the odds, come together to train for the historic title match that will unite their fractured family, redeem their pasts and at last, give their hard-luck town what it’s been waiting for: Pride.

Directed by Academy Award® Nominee David O. Russell (Three Kings), The Fighter won two Academy Awards® for Best Supporting Actor and Actress (Christian Bale, Melissa Leo), and nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams), Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing.  The film is the second highest grossing boxing film in the UK ahead of Million Dollar Baby and second only to Rocky Balboa.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is correctly answer the following question:

Micky Ward is the ‘Hero of Lowell’ – In which US state can you visit Lowell?
