David O. Russell’s The Fighter, which will have its first Manhattan press screening on Thursday, will screen for free tonight at L.A.’s AFI Fest 2010 at Grauman’s Chinese. The true-life based boxing drama costarring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Melissa Leo will show at 9:30 p.m, which means that reviews from enterprising bloggers can be expected by midnight or 1 am Pacific.
“Admission to the screening will be available to AFI FEST 2010 passholders and the
general public through online ticket reservations at AFI.com/AFIFEST,” says an official announcement. Admission will also be available “via the rush line, which will begin forming one hour before the scheduled screening start time. All attendees are invited to walk the red carpet for the screening.”
