Quick update coming your way for Fighting. You know - That film starring Channing Tatum and Terrence Howard that looks a whole lot like Lionheart but without the kicking? While I love to make fun of it, there is something to this project that looks pretty good. Eh, maybe it's just the thrill of watching Channing Tatum body slam some martial artist the old fashioned way. Hard to say.
Either way, the film's first poster has arrived courtesy of Cinematical and it's more for the ladies than any guy who watches UFC.
Movie Poster: Fighting
Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) has come to New York City with nothing. Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership.
As Shawn's manager, Harvey introduces him to the corrupt bare-knuckle circuit, where rich men bet on disposable pawns. Almost overnight, he becomes a star brawler, taking down professional boxers, mixed martial arts champs and ultimate fighters in a series of staggeringly intense bouts. But if Shawn ever hopes to escape the dark world in which he's found himself, he must now face the toughest fight of his life.
