What do we know about The Iron Claw?

The film's title is inspired by Von Erich's signature move. The movie maps the rise of the Von Erich brothers in the world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s under the watchful eyes of a domineering father. The brothers rose to fame throughout the 1980s but their story was marred by personal tragedies which came to be known as the Von Erich curse.

 

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, the official plotline read. The Iron Claw stars Efron as Kevin Von Enrich alongside Jeremy Allen White of The Bear fame as Kerry Von Enrich.

Zac Efron talks about The Iron Claw

"They were just magnets for attention and the biggest rock stars in wrestling to ever come out of Texas. They had a very quick rise and they shined really bright. They were just dynamic athletes, all of them. And then awful things started to happen," Efron said in a statement. 

 

"They had a bond that was unlike any other relationship in the world. Your bond with your brother is the most special thing you have. And they had a bounty of it in this family," he added. The Iron Claw had its theatrical debut in India on February 9 and took almost 4 months for its digital premiere.
