Official Poster Revealed for Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler
Finally! We've been waiting and waiting to get our hands on this poster. Whenever I see a movie at a film fest and end up falling in love with it, I always hope that the poster turns out great so as to provide the perfect compliment to the movie itself. This poster for Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler does just that - it's a beautiful bit of imagery that captures exactly what the movie is all about. For those who don't know, it's about the rather lonely life that professional wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson lives. If you're lucky enough to have already seen it, then you know this is a great image to use. I just really hope that it catches the attention of more moviegoers as well, because The Wrestler deserves to be seen.
Thanks to the guys over at InContention (via SlashFilm) for finding this. I saw it on the red carpet at the AFI Fest premiere (where I saw the film for a second time) and have been waiting for it to show up online ever since. The trailer is due out later this week. Does it capture your attention?
The Wrestler is both directed and produced by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, of Pi, Requiem for a Dream, and The Fountain previously, with a script written by Robert D. Siegel, of only The Onion Movie previously. The film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival and Toronto Film Festival and was quickly picked up by Fox Searchlight for distribution. The Wrestler will hit very limited theaters starting on December 17th before expanding wider throughout January. Don't miss this - you will love it!
