#ASimpleFavor Teaser Trailer #2

#THESHEIK On March 1st

HE IS REVERED AS ONE OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING'S GREAT VILLAINS, BUT HIS OWN PERSONAL STORY IS NOTHING SHORT OF HEROIC

For decades he has been professional wrestling's man you love to hate. But a new film recounting his extraordinary life story will fill WWE fans and non-fans alike with nothing but love for the imposing star known as The Iron Sheik. THE SHEIK arrives DVD on March 1, 2016.

Khosrow Ali Vaziri was born in Iran in 1942, establishing a name for himself as an amateur wrestler, a bodyguard for the Shah of Iran, and an athlete representing his home country in the 1968 Summer Olympics. In the early 1970s, following the unexpected and controversial death of his good friend and Olympic wrestling gold medalist Gholamreza Takhti, Vaziri left Iran to pursue the American Dream. His journey to the United States began one of the most spectacular professional wrestling careers in modern history.

Assuming the persona of the villainous The Iron Sheik, Vaziri became one of the most celebrated and hated men in sports entertainment, helping launch Hulkamania in the 1980s and weathering a career that saw him turn the wrestling world upside down throughout the '80s and '90s. A fall from sobriety after the murder of one of his daughters brought the Sheik to the lowest and most challenging point in his life. Now in his 70s, the Sheik has embraced an unlikely new persona as an outlandish social media sensation, known for hilarious outbursts and massively popular antics.

Featuring candid interviews with Vaziri's family, historians and over 25 wrestling superstars,
THE SHEIK is a pop culture documentary that chronicles this determined survivor's electrifying career from his upbringing in Iran to his journey to the U.S. and his unprecedented experiences as America's most hated villain.

The film features interviews with celebrities and wrestling superstars including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Hulk Hogan, Jack Black, Seth Green, Mick Foley, Bret Hart, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Hacksaw Jim Duggan and many more.

IGN Movies' Matt Fowler called THE SHEIK "a compelling film about an extraordinary man ... There are moments of true heartbreak and tragedy mixed with wild road stories and the Iron Sheik's trademark over-the-top personality." Said Jacqueline Valencia of Next Projection: "THE SHEIK is a riveting documentary for wrestling fans and an entertaining insight into the wrestling medium for non-fans. ... a portrait of a man who's experienced fame, fortune, darkness, and eventual redemption. " And WWE star and film actor Dave Bautista cheered, "Wrestling fans - this is a must-see!"

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be centerstage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.
