There’s nothing like a bit of peer-to-peer support to help a movie gain some press publicity ground. Spike Jonze (ADAPTATION, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH) has been in touch with Peter Sciretta over at /Film asking him to post up a new trailer for David O. Russell‘s movie THE FIGHTER. Despite it’s impressive cast, including Academy Award nominees Mark Wahlberg, Amy Adams, and Christian Bale, the film hasn’t been given much publicity of late, enter Spike Jonze with a well-written email and a helping hand:
Hey Peter –
Spike here. I’m writing on behalf of my friend David Russell, regarding his new movie The Fighter. Did you get a chance to see it yet? How insanely great is Christian Bale?
Can you do me a favor and post this 2 minute trailer called “Pressure” on your site?
The trailer that they put out originally makes the film feel a little generic and I just want to help David get the word out. I got to see it a few weeks ago, and I loved it, and if all you saw is the trailer that’s out, you might not know that it’s as interesting and strong as it is.
Thanks for your help!
The film is yet to be given a release date in the UK, but goes nationwide in the US on the 17th. Watch the new trailer, called “Pressure” below.
