'Fighting With My Family': Paige thinks new poster of the film is 'bad a**', fans excited
Based on the life of WWE wrestler, Paige, the movie's poster sees Paige standing in the middle surrounded by everyone who made her the star she is
Former WWE wrestler, Paige (originally named Saraya-Jade Bevis), who is now the on-screen general manager of the SmackDown brand, took to Twitter to exclaim her excitement about the new poster of the Stephen Merchant-directed bio-pic, 'Fighting With My Family'. Starring Florence Pugh, Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Jack Lowden, Vince Vaughn and Dwayne Johnson, the comedy is set to follow Paige (played by Pugh) and her brother Zak (played by Lowden), who get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for the WWE.
When only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her family and face this new, cut-throat world alone. Paige's journey pushes her to dig deep, fight for her family, and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.
Paige posted the brand new poster of the movie, captioning it: "look at this!! Looks so bada**! New movie poster @FightingWMyFam". Fans were quick to appreciate the fact the Knight family is finally getting what it deserves. One fan commented, "Absolutely can't wait for this!! Norwich will always be my home and I'm so glad the Knight family are finally getting the recognition they deserve for all they've done for British wrestling, and for our fine city."
Another fan, who claims to be close to the Knight family, mentioned: "Being friends of this family since I was 6 or 7 I even wrestled one year on the camps and my brother still wrestles for Waw, can't wait to see the story of my friends on the BIG Screen."
Paige's post comes just a few days after actor Dwayne Johnson, who plays his part as The Rock from the WWE, took to Twitter and revealed the new poster, captioning it: "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."
Fans immediately expressed their eagerness to watch Paige's life come to the screen, and one fan also mentioned the movie will be more action-packed than a basic light-hearted comedy.
"Based on this poster alone, I'd say it looks like a heist/action movie over anything else. Comedy would be my last guess," a fan said. Most fans are excited about the movie which has been produced by Kevin Misher, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Stephen Merchant, and Michael J. Luisi, and executive produced by Andy Berman, Hiram Garcia, Daniel Battsek, Tracey Josephs, David Kosse, and Rhodri Thomas. The film is set to release February 14, 2019, in Los Angeles and New York and worldwide February 22, 2019.
