During a recent interview with Moviefone, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was asked about “The Wrestler” starring Mickey Rourke. Johnson added, “I thought that the movie…was real and memorable. That world…it’s a very visceral, authentic world that [director Darren Aronofsky] created and I can’t say enough great things about the movie. My uncle actually trained Mickey and he would call me weekly and give me progress reports. [He] was amazed at…his desire to do everything. That takes commitment.”
Speaking of “The Wrestler”, the DVD/Blu-Ray cover has gotten a new look from the movie poster that was originally released with the film that can be seen at this link.
