We’ve been fed blurry images of those dodgy haircuts for months now but finally, we have an official still from A24’s upcoming wrestling biopic The Iron Claw. Set to be released in the States in December, we’re very excited to be able to settle down in our local cinemas and finally witness…just what exactly that hair is all about, come on guys, be serious, we’re not watching for the plot.

We’ll be seated.
