One Last Look: Mickey Rourke as The Ram in The Wrestler
Today I present one final montage of photos from Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, a film that everyone has continued to fall in love with. This truly is the comeback for Mickey Rourke, who is guaranteed an Oscar nomination and maybe a win for his performance. Rourke is really the spirit and soul of this movie, but supporting him along the way is Marisa Tomei, whose pretty face brightens up some of the sadder moments in the film. With that brief introduction, I now present one last look at The Wrestler. Even though it may take another month or more to show up in a theater near you, I'm sure you won't soon forget it.
Thanks to our friends at SlashFilm for this latest batch of photos. Not only do I want people to see this movie because it's wonderful, but I want it to be a huge success for Darren Aronofsky and Fox Searchlight.
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!
