The "Fighting With My Family" Movie based on Paige's family of wrestlers will make its world premiere at The Sundance Film Festival on Monday, January 28th in Salt Lake City, Utah. This will be the surprise screening for the festival, according to Deadline.

The Rock will be presenting the movie at Sundance, along with Seven Bucks Productions Partners Dany Garcia & Hiram Garcia. Sundance premieres are a big deal for movies and this will be the first time a Seven Bucks film was chosen to screen at the festival. Director/Writer Stephen Merchant will also be there, along with some of the cast. Deadline noted that they are all "extremely proud" of this movie.

The movie based on Paige and her family is inspired by a British Documentary that was released a few years back. Seven Bucks & WWE Studios are producing the movie along with The Ink Factory & Misher Films Productions. Rock makes a cameo while Zelina Vega stars as AJ Lee. Paige is played by Actress Florence Pugh with Tessa Blanchard serving as her stunt double. Paige's parents are played by Nick Frost & Lena Headey. It was recently reported that the movie wouldn't hit theaters in North America until Thursday, February 21st, but Deadline reports that it is coming out on Valentine's Day - Thursday, February 14th. It will then release in The UK on Friday, March 1st.

Below is a tweet from The Rock from on-set in Hawaii, who called it their "little independent movie", along with comments from Paige and a new clip from The Seven Bucks Twitter Account:

For those who missed it in The WWE Worlds Collide Tournament Announcement for Royal Rumble Axxess later this month, The First-Ever NXT UK TV Tapings outside of England will take place at The Phoenix Convention Center during Royal Rumble weekend. These tapings will feature the fallout from today's NXT UK TakeOver: Blackpool Event. There is no word yet on the exact times for the tapings but they will take place on Friday & Sunday. The Friday Axxess session runs from 6PM until 10PM and The Sunday session runs from 8AM until 12NN. Tickets for Axxess are still available at this link.
