It appears the theatrical release for the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s new movie, ‘Fighting With My Family’ has been delayed. It is now reported to be releasing on Thursday, February 21st as opposed to the original date of Friday, February 8th.
The movie will be premiering in both New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, February 14th.
Focusing on the real-life story of current WWE SmackDown General Manager, Paige and her family of pro wrestlers, it documents her journey from wrestling for British independents to trying out for, and eventually signing to, WWE.
Paige is played by Florence Pugh, with Tessa Blanchard acting as her in-ring stunt double. Zelina Vega also appears in the movie as ex-WWE Divas Champion, AJ Lee. Nick Frost and Lena Headey also star, cast as Paige’s parents.
Although produced by The Rock, his role in the actual movie is limited to cameo status.
Fighting With My Family
The Rock recently released a new poster for the movie which features Paige, her family, and himself outside a house. The Rock, in particular, looks a little out of place in the poster when contrasted with the family.
He accompanied it with some kind words, promoting the movie:
“New poster for our lil’ crazy comedy based on the true story of @WWE’s @RealPaigeWWE & her wrestling family. Honor for me to play a small part in Paige’s career defining moment, as well as bringing her family’s story to the big screen. #FightingWithMyFamily @SevenBucksProd”
