Within pro wrestling lie some of the most interesting and amazing stories, and HBO has been working tirelessly on bringing perhaps the largest pro wrestling story to life: that of the Gorilla Monsoon-christened “immovable object,” Andre the Giant.
After much anticipation, HBO, in association with WWE and The Ringer’s Bill Simmons, have revealed the trailer and release date for their forthcoming documentary Andre the Giant.
The film chronicles the life and career of the “8th Wonder of the World,” from his origins in his native France to his legendary career in and out of the squared-circle, to his untimely and, sadly, inevitable death. Hopefully the film will live up to the larger-than-life, one-of-a-kind legacy left by “The Boss.” If the trailer above is any indication, any doubts will quickly be blocked out by Andre’s engulfing mitt of a hand.
The film will debut on HBO on April 10. Check out the trailer above.
