Preview: April 2017 at the Cinema

Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*

Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.

So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .

The Rock’s Uncle Taught Rourke To Wrestle

How cool, that The Rock’s uncle trained Mickey.

Mickey Rourke was transformed into a professional wrestler by the uncle of grappler-turned-Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson.

Rourke spent months at former World Wrestling Federation star Afa Anoa’i’s Wild Samoan Training Center in Florida to prepare for his role as fallen ring favourite Randy ‘The Ram’ Johnson in The Wrestler.

And Dwayne Johnson – who used to wrestle under the name The Rock – reveals he kept a close eye on Rourke’s transformation from actor to muscle-bound athlete.

He tells, “My uncle actually trained Mickey for the movie, and he would call me weekly and give me progress reports on Mickey. That’s a tough task to go from just being an actor to becoming not only a professional wrestler, but a professional wrestler who’s wrestled for 25 years. My uncle was amazed at Mickey’s progress and his desire to do everything. That takes commitment.”

And Johnson insists he is a huge fan of the film, insisting it accurately depicted the wrestling world.

He adds, “I loved the movie. I thought Mickey’s performance was outstanding. I thought that the movie that Darren Aronofsky created was real and memorable. That world -­ it’s a very visceral, authentic world that he created, and I can’t say enough great things about the movie, and I’m very proud of Mickey.”

Rourke’s performance in the movie earned him a Best Actor Oscar nomination – but he lost out to Sean Penn, who took home the prize for Milk at February’s ceremony.
