Trailer for HBO’s wrestling doc ‘Andre the Giant’

by Phil Wheat

Originally debuting on US TV during the WWE 2018 Royal Rumble, HBO have released the new trailer for their upcoming documentary Andre the Giant, which explores the life and career of one of the biggest, literally and metaphorically wrestlers to ever compete in the squared circle – and features interviews with his wrestling luminaries, and other performers Andre worked with: including the cast of The Princess Bride!

Andre the Giant was — literally — the biggest professional athlete in the world for decades. He was larger than life: From his exploits in the ring to the stories of his drinking, reality could hardly contain Andre. Featuring original interviews with everyone who was a part of his expansive life, from Vince McMahon, to Rob Reiner, to Andre’s brothers in France, Jason Hehir’s new film explores the life — in full — of the man who casts the biggest shadow in the history of sports and culture.

Andre the Giant airs on HBO on April 10th.
