The Wrestler Premiere

They rolled out the red carpet in LA on Thursday for this great little picture about a trailer park dwelling worn down professional wrestler. So why is it that the movie, which has been completed for months, still doesn't have a trailer or poster (well OK, sort of) and won't premiere for the moviegoing public for another 39 days. Studio release strategies are so irritating. Here are future Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke, my imaginary girlfriend Marisa Tomei, Darren Aronofsky and Evan Rachel Wood at the premiere.

I suspect you'll be seeing a lot of them this awards season.
I still rejoice that the buzz on Rourke proved so justified.
I wonder why ERW is still trying so hard to be goth, post Marilyn Manson breakup?

That elusive poster in not so good quality...

I would kill someone just so that I could see “The Wrestler” already. Preferably, I’d like to kill someone who has already seen it.

Are you sure that's not actually Jennifer Tilly?

I can't believe I'm the first one to mention ERW's UNCANNY resemblance to Dita Von Teese in that photo. Is that what happens to all Manson's exes? Creepy. Reminds me of the Joker girls from Burton's '89 "Batman."

I was talking to my friend about The Wrestler, and she said that according to Perez Hilton (I know. I know.) that Evan Rachel Wood is going out with Mickey Rourke....

I was speechless as well.

Anyways, I'm gonna see this in about a month for Film Independent and there's a Q&A with Rourke, Arronofsky, Rachel Wood and Tomei.

You beat me to it on Evan Rachel Wood and looking like Dita! Although Evan will never be as fab as Dita though ;)

I'm sorry, but Marisa is my imaginary girlfriend.

Sammy Jo said...

What is wrong with people...Dita, fab? She's a stripper.
She did porn. Have you seen the one with the stilletto in her ass?

Evan Rachel Wood is definitely having her Lindsay Lohan moment with the scary makeup and black hair, BUT she is infinitely more interesting then Dita Von Teese.

Also, she is NOT dating Rourke. She is doing press with Rourke. It's an idiotic thing to say....oh yeah, an idiot said it.

Ditta ? Stilettos ? Ass ?

I'm so there.

If Mickey Rourke keeps mouthing off and hurling homophobic slurs out there like this, he won't be winning anything.

anon -- when bringing up gossip it's best to link to something because some of us won't know what you're talking about?

is Rourke off his good behavior already?

It's not "gossip," he clearly called someone a f-----, and it's all over the web. I don't know why it hasn't been discussed here yet.
