Fighting with My Family — Official Trailer


added: Wed, Nov 14th '18

Inspired by the true life story of English-born WWE superstar wrestler "Paige," comes a new lighthearted sports comedy about achieving your childhood dreams and living up to your family's expectations.

Check out the official trailer for "Fighting with My Family," the upcoming British wrestling comedy which is written and directed by English comedian Stephen Merchant (The Office, Hello Ladies) and executive produced by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who also makes a guest appearance as himself.

The film, a semi-biographical and comedic depiction of Paige's life as an aspiring wrestler who's been raised in a misfit family of British wrestlers, stars rising English actress Florence Pugh (Outlaw King, The Little Drummer Girl) as the younger, fictionalized version of Paige.

Jack Lowden (Dunkirk) also stars as Paige's brother, Zak, who is also a fellow aspiring wrestler. Meanwhile, comedian Nick Frost and "Game of Thrones" actress Lena Headey play Paige and Zak's wrestler parents.

Vince Vaughn co-stars as a WWE talent scout who gives Paige her shot at international stardom, though decides not to pick Zak after his try-outs, which becomes a source of contention between the two wrestling-obsessed siblings.

"Fighting with My Family" is due to open in theaters on February 22, 2019. Watch the trailer, above.

Based on a true story, FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY follows reformed gangster Ricky, wife Julia, daughter Paige and son Zak as they make a living wrestling together in tiny venues. When Paige and Zak get the opportunity to try out for WWE, the family grabs a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their wildest dreams into a dazzling future. However, brother and sister quickly discover that to become superstars, both their talent and their relationship will be put to the test.

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming and smart comedy that proves everything is worth fighting for when it comes to family.
