‘The Fighter’ Headed to Blu-ray and DVD

The Fighter Blu-rayDo you know who’s coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Video on Demand on March 15? Not you, not you, not you, and not you. That’s right, The Fighter will soon be ready to take home. The film’s already racking up award nominations and a few wins and it’s got a shot at seven total Academy Awards including one for Best Supporting Actor (Christian Bale) and Best Supporting Actress (Melissa Leo and Amy Adams). Besides ladies, is it usually a chore to look at Mark Wahlberg for two hours? Not so much.

The boxing film’s DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will include a few exclusive featurettes including “The Warrior’s Code: Filming The Fighter” and a digital copy in addition to the usual deleted scenes, commentary and theatrical trailer. The DVD only comes with the featurette and commentary, but unfortunately doesn’t list deleted scenes as a feature.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
