Wrestler poster

11.12.2008
We have a picture of the poster for THE WRESTLER, one of the best reviewed films of the year. Darren Aronofsky directs the story of a retired professional wrestler Randy "The Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) as he makes his way through the independent circuit, trying to get back in the game for one final showdown with his former rival. Marisa Tomei plays a stripper, I play a dude in the audience about to be arrested for indecent exposure.

Extra Tidbit: Nic Cage was originally intended to be the star of this movie.

Oh man.. and Nic Cage could have actually redeemed himself from that heaping pile of horse shit that is "National Treasure 1,2, Next, Ghost Rider, Bangcok dangerous, the wicker man" wow..

Nic Cage really did that many shitty movies in the past 3 years? Wow.. I just went and got myself depressed.

Slick poster - doesn't look like all the others

This is a good looking poster - has a more classic feel to it than a lot of the carbon copy posters of late. I'm glad Cage wasn't cast, just because he feels overexposed, and Rourke needs more of the types of roles Cage gets.

I only hope with this movie that Aronofsky hasn't changed up Barton Fink's script too much. The original The Wrestler will always be a B-classic that rose above what the studio tried to make.

haha sparkholiday is right

IS THAT MY DAUGHTER IN THERE?!

I think Penn is great, but this movie better sweep the oscars like the f*cking Titanic, and that starts with Mickey Rourke.

I really hope Sean Penn doesn't get the Oscar. I personally can't f*cking stand Sean Penn. Every role the guy takes he cries, EVERY SINGLE ROLE. Honestly, do you really have to cry that much? Is that what it takes to win an Oscar?

I'm really excited to see this movie. I hope Mickey scores an Oscar for this (fuck Sean Penn!!) because from everything I've read about it, he really gave it his all for this part. Aronofsky is one of my favorite filmmakers and love all of his flicks.

You also have to give the man props, from the interviews I've seen and read, he really laid down the law with Rourke on this movie. Most people, I'm sure, would have pissed their pants if they tried standing up to the Mickster.

I want

i'm glad to see Rourke back in the spotlight, Nic Cage could have been hit or miss. I maintain my theory that Nic Cage is an actor of mathematic odds, like the fact that out of every 5 Cage movies, 1 will be really good. So for every WeatherMan you'd have to suffer through Bangkok Dangerous, The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider, and Next. This could have been his lucky 1 in 5 chance. Its fact, look at his track record.

Glad that Cage didn't star in this film.
It would have been another terrible toupee on his bald head.

Can't Wait

Can not wait for this movie to come out. I love all of Darren's movies. He keeps getting better and better. Im really glad he didn't get nic cage. Nic Cage has the potential to be good when he wants to, but this is the part that Rourke was born to play. The man deserves it too

Nic Cage not original star

Mickey Rourke was always supposed to be the star. Nic Cage only signed on after Darren couldn't get the financing with Mickey as star. Darren got other financing, and was therefore able to use Mickey. This was in last weeks Entertainment Weekly.

Let him have the Oscar! Sean Penn can get one whenever he decides to act. But the Mickster needs it like a young actress needs implants.

"I play a dude in the audience about to be arrested for indecent exposure."

Once again, James... Quote of the day. You're on fire. Thanks for keeping me laughing.

By the way. Saw the film at AFI and it was great. The Mick's going to have a hard time up against Sean Penn in "Milk," but damn if he doesn't kick ass in this film.
