The trailer for The Fighter filmed right here in Lowell hit YouTube yesterday with as bang. After just one day, over 126,000 people have viewed the preview of what many think will be one of the top movies of the year. The movie tells the life story of Lowell's own boxing great, Irish Micky Ward . There are many recognizable scenes of Lowell in this 2:30 second trailer, but the most interesting for us is the scene filmed in the upper lobby of the Lowell Superior Courthouse, the home of the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds.
The movie stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and will be released December 10, 2010.
