For those online that have followed me for awhile, they know I am a fan of WWE Superstar John Cena. I have seen now several trailers for a movie I am excited to see, Legendary. Many have seen or heard of John Cena starring in The Marine and 12 Rounds. From what I have seen-John Cena takes on a new role in Legendary alongside award-winning Danny Glover and Patricia Clarkson in a movie that has already left me teary-eyed just from the trailer alone.
In the small town of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, the Chetley name is synonymous with victory. This inspirational tale of a young man’s dream to reunite his family through amateur wrestling is as triumphant as it is profoundly touching. WWE Superstar John Cena (The Marine) is Mike Chetley, a former high school and collegiate champion estranged from his family. Things change when his awkward, undersized, younger brother Cal (Devon Graye, Dexter) comes back into his life with a plan to unify Mike and their widowed mother Sharon (Academy Award® Nominated Patricia Clarkson, The Green Mile), but not without major setbacks. With the guidance of Red (Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon), Cal learns that winning against all odds is worth more then he could have ever imagined.
Check out the Official Site for Legendary The Movie. While it is not apparently being shown in theaters in Iowa, I did sign the petition to bring it to a theater near me. Check the locations near you and if a spot is not available, sign the petition yourself.
