Paramount Pictures is doing some interesting tie-ins for The Fighter, David O. Russell’s Oscar contender about Irish Mickey Ward. No, they’re not doing toys or Happy Meals - they did an art show with The Fighter as the theme, and now some of the art is available for you to buy.
It ranges from the affordable - the print above is ten bucks - to the collectible - gorgeous paintings hand painted on real boxing gloves. I love how they’re doing something less than ordinary with this movie, and how they’re reaching out to an audience beyond the blue haired Academy voters.
