I’ve seem a lot of signs that the Apocalypse is upon us lately – Obama becoming president, Mubarak resigning in Egypt, 30Rock moved to 10 PM, and airplanes splitting open at 34,000 feet; you know, typical apocalyptic stuff. But I heard one of the most disturbing today. WWE, aka World Wrestling “Entertainment” (quotes intentional) has entered into the movie-making business, otherwise known as legitimate entertainment.
That’s right – the same folks who brought us “The People’s Elbow” (don’t ask me how I know that), and large violent men in skimpy satin shorts under the guise of “entertainment” now intend to use their talents for good. Well, maybe not that good. Seems as though their first forays into serious cinema have so far not been all that successful. But things may be looking up for WWE with an upcoming film starring mainstream Oscar-nominated actor Ed Harris, opening soon. You can follow the whole story here and see what your favorite “wrestler” is up to in the Coming Soon department.
