I can’t wait to see this one next year, released on January 16th 2009 ‘The Wrestler’, marks the incredible comeback from Mickey Rourke, directed by Darren Aronofsky.

Back in the late ’80s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. There’s actually only 12 minutes of ring action, but Rourke rules in this movie. Staring Evan Rachel Wood as his estranged daughter and Marisa Tomei as a stripper who’s seen better days, Tomei and Rourke have both received Golden Globe nominations. Bruce Springsteen has written the title song, it’s got winner written all over it.
