Professional wrestling is a dangerous sport, even when you are outside the squared circle. Now A24 and filmmaker Sean Durkin look at one of the most tragic stories in all wrestling: the tragedies that struck the legendary Von Erich family.
With The Iron Claw (named after the move made famous by the Von Erichs), we see an all-star cast, including Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White, step into the wrestling ring to showcase the story of Kevin, David, Kerry, Mike, and Chris Von Erich. Grab your title belts, get the tissues ready, and check out the trailer below…
The true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. Through tragedy and triumph, under the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports.
Written and directed by Sean Durkin, the film stars Zac Efron, Jeremy Allen White, Harris Dickinson, Stanley Simons, and Maura Tierney, with Holt McCallany and Lily James.
The Iron Claw opens in theaters everywhere on December 22nd.
