Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2000 Copies.
Darren Aronofsky directs this independent drama starring Mickey Rourke as retired professional wrestler Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, who had his heyday in the late 1980s as a headlining professional wrestler but is now reduced to eking out a living by performing in high school gyms and community centres in New Jersey. Estranged from his teenage daughter Stephanie (Evan Rachel Wood) and unable to sustain any real relationships, Randy lives for the thrill of the show and the adoration of his ever-dwindling fan base. When a heart attack forces him into retirement, his sense of identity starts to slip away, and he is forced to evaluate the state of his life. But his fumbling attempts to reconnect with his daughter and forge an on-going relationship with exotic dancer Cassidy (Marisa Tomei) are overshadowed by his strong desire to get back into the ring, whatever the cost.

Great movie and the steelbook looks amazing and at a great price, highly recommend buying this movie It is a most own.
Great movie and having this on steelbook version was an extra bonus.
great looking steelbook, with glossy finish. one of my favourite blu ray steelbooks 2014. thank you for this beauty
Glossy steelbook, with exceptionally perfect design, which gives back the mood of the movie. Thanks Zavvi for doing this. The disk has the same artwork as the dvd edition, but with this steelbook packaging it really worth more than normal cases. Highly recommended to everyone, especially on this price.
In my view, this case is the most representative image of the film i've ever seen. Pride and defeat for one.
Steelbook Case is made of high quality material, it looks awesome when light hits the surface, then the orange tones highlight in very nice way. Movie "The Wrestler" is one of best movies of all times and I can suggest anyone to watch it.
Another great film, a very gritting behind the scenes look at professional wrestlers. As far as the steelbook another winner for zavvi. Well done.
The film itself is an ode to Professional Wrestling Entertainers through history. It shows the struggles that the man faces, while trying to make it big in his industry, while also trying to live a normal enough life, trying to sustain himself as he goes from venue to venue and match to match. The artwork is nice and simple, and by just choosing this pose, can say a lot about the overall struggle he faces through the movie. The colors mesh together nicely, and highlight the star of the film in a bright, yet dark way.
This is awesome! My first copy came with slight damage on the case, but Zavvi simply fixed me up with a replacement, this does seem to happen a lot, but Zavvi are great with customer support & hooking you up with a replacement; unless it's sold out. The steelbook has loads of detail, the back is better than the front, it features posters from the movie of "The Ram" & his many matches, it's simplistic & dark, keeping with the tone of the movie, but still full of detail & thought. The movie speaks for itself, wonderfully acted & a great insight into the world of Pro Wrestling, yes, it is scripted, as the movie dipicted, but you'll learn it's far from fake, fake is the wrong word for the punishment these athletes/entertainers put their bodies through! Check it out!
The Wrestler is a great film, pure and simple! This Zavvi Steelbook is another addition to my growing steelbook collection - unopened.
The steel book has a glossy finish. The art work is pretty good. Zavvi produces a steel book that The Ram would be proud of.
