The Wrestler trailer

I love Darren Aronofsky's work, but I was a bit skeptical when I first learned about THE WRESTLER. Not because I don't trust his ability as a director, but because I hate wrestling and I had my doubts about being able to care about characters that centered around the sport. But I forgot one important thing: his movies are about human drama and are never overshadowed by the setting or concept. I came to this epiphany while watching Mickey Rourke in the trailer. As the Newsweek quote says, "Witness the resurrection of Mickey Rourke..." He is the obvious heart of the movie and I can't wait to see his entire performance. IMDB says the release date is January 16th, but the Dallas Angelika Theater lists January 9th, so I would recommend checking local listings. CLICK HERE to see the trailer in HD at Apple.com!
