Besides the Oscar, the emotionally-charged role also earned Bale a Golden Globe, SAG and National Board of Review award for best supporting actor.
With the release of the DVD and Blu-ray, it can finally be seen. The Fighter debuts in a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and on VOD March 15 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo also includes “Keeping The Faith”, the real-life story of boxer Micky Ward (played by Mark Wahlberg) and Dicky as told by family and friends, deleted scenes and a digital copy of the film.
