Did it star a wrestler, tho, too? I honestly haven't heard of that film.

It does, as he mentioned already. Dead Man Down is an action-thriller starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace from the director of the Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I haven't seen it yet myself, but do plan on checking it out.

The wrestler is Wade Barrett (real first name Stuart). Pretty good "character" on WWE too. He's moving up the charts as they say. They have a funny thing going on with him acting like he's the main reason to see the film, even though his small role. And his opponent mocking his performance. By showing clips, etc...

To clarify: I asked if it "starred" a wrestler too, as FF posted that a wrestler played the part of a henchman. It sounds like this film stars Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace, who are not wrestlers, and the wrestler's part is secondary. This differs from the Leprechaun film, in which a wrestler will star as the leading character, the character that the film is named after. Two different scenarios, albeit both involving wrestlers.

Technically, the movie didn't specify which man down was dead. They could have been referring to the henchman...

That has to be one of the worst "sneak peaks" I've seen in a long time. They give Leprechaun fans absolutely nothing to be excited over. Even a non-fan wouldn't give a shit about that clip.

Show us the Leprechaun already for fucks sake

That's the best preview they could put together? It looks like cheap garbage... maybe the Leprechaun looks so bad they won't show it.

Jesus fucking christ!
The acting seems to be on the level of the worst SOV movies
But then again, everything coming out of WWE is garbage.

WWE has a hard time making up their mind about their own image. On one side they're putting out a Scooby Doo cartoon and on the other they're putting out a Leprechaun remake. Their live shows are PG and aimed at kids, but then at times they'll have bloody brawls. Due to this inconsistency they don't really excel on either front.
