Mark Wahlberg ‘Fighter’ to go wide during crowded holiday frame Paramount’s potential award season contender “The Fighter” is now being opened in limited release on December 10.

In the film, Mark Wahlberg plays Irish boxer Micky Ward alongside Christian Bale who will play his half-brother Dickie Eklund. David O. Russell directs in his first film since 2004’s “I Heart Huckabees.”

Though “Fighter” will avoid going head to head with Sony’s Johnny Depp-Angelina Jolie vehicle “The Tourist,” it will tangle with a number of films when it goes wide on December 17. Of note, James L. Brooks’ romantic comedy “How Do You Know as well as two 3D mass-aud films “Tron Legacy” and “Yogi Bear.”

It is anticipated that “Fighter” will appeal to adult males while the Brooks’ film will be geared toward women given Reese Witherspoon’s name above the title. “Yogi Bear” is obviously meant for the family demo.

However, “Tron” is conceivably a four-quadrant film, and could grab the most moviegoers over the holiday season.

Variety had the news.
