Sometime in December. Aronofsky is one of the best directors in the past decade.

Evan Rachel Wood? Didn't know she was in it.

Aronofsky is great and I love Rourke. I'm so glad it's getting good reviews. I really can't wait to see it.

I'm glad that we have a serious director making a serious movie here. I'm tired of the way movies have portrayed wrestling as. They always make it more fake then what it is, losing the art that's in wrestling. The ring ropes are more lose then N2N's mom, and they make up out of this world 'not even Vince McMahon would create' characters. For a business I've loved for so long, it's good to know this will be dead serious and thought provoking. I can't wait.

The only reason I'm really excited about this is because it was done by Aronofsky. The plot doesn't even sound enticing to me but I'll give it a go.

At least we can all be sure of one thing:

Necrobutcher sucks a fat dick.

I might give this a chance. The Fountain was way too overboard and pretentious. Hopefully this stays a bit more grounded. I wonder what route they're going to take with the story; if it's going to really explore wrestling storylines and backstage politics, or if they're gonna go the easy "wrestling is real" way out.

from the looks of it the latter though a good movie on the politics and back stage craziness would be cool to see.
