Fighting With My Family Releases Final Trailer

If you aren’t a big fan of Stephen Merchant (you should be) you might not be aware of the comedy potential he brings to anything, even when he isn’t writing and directing. If you are a big fan of Stephen Merchant, you might wonder how the hell he got involved in a movie about professional wrestling that’s based on a true story.

Either way, audiences are about to be in for a surprise treat with Fighting with My Family, a curious, little underdog story about a girl who grows up in a wrestling family and ultimately tries to make her own way in the family business… or whatever.

Some may stick up their nose at a movie revolving around professional wrestling, but with Merchant himself on screen as well, along with Vince Vaughn, Nick Frost, Lena Headey, and Dwayne Johnson, there’s a lot to recommend here.

The film has just released a final trailer, and assuming it actually gives you a good idea of what’s coming, there’s plenty to suggest that this one is really a good time.

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming comedy based on the incredible true story of WWE Superstar Paige™.

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.
