    Bit weird that they're going to have Paige's actress on the show, as Paige, when the real Paige hasn't been on Raw in ages (through injury and other....stuff, admittedly).

    Florenece's neck must be killing her trying to look at their faces. Liked his comment about Merchant. Did they know each other outside of this and The Tooth Fairy?

    Rock posted another picture showing "Paige" practicing a submission on the actress who will be playing AJ lee. So the guess seems to be the scene they are filming tonight is Paige's Raw debut...

    I'm guessing Paige could do lines of the white stuff in the middle of ring in front Vince and she wouldn't get her third strike until the very earliest till after this film is released.

    Tessa Blanchard is the ring double and Thea Trinidad playing AJ?

    Amazes me that neither Tessa and especially Thea aren't under contracts. Maybe this changes that.

    havent seen much of eithier bit more of tessa and she seems really good in the ring and with her dad story lines with her and charlotte are already there waiting.

    Thea is good in the ring, and she has the look they like, plus they are always looking for stars of different ethnicities. And she's engaged to one of their guys.

    Thea did compete on a match for NXT didn't she? Perhaps that and this will help her get her foot in the door. She was very green when I saw her in TNA as 'Rosita' but she definitely showed lots of potential. And they do appear to be low on Latina women if Nikki and Eva are on their way out, JoJo's just ring announcing, and Bayley seems to be presented as white. They've always wanted to keep demographics full.

    Definitely did at least one match on NXT and she was a Rosebud as well. I think she was at some of their recent try outs too.

    Holy smoke:eek::eek::eek:

    I didn't know it was written and directed by Stephen Merchant. The Office (UK) and Extras are my favourite comedy shows by a country mile. The more and more I see of things Gervais and Merchant do since, it really seems Merchant was the brains behind it all.

    Will certainly give this a chance.

    Big gags wasted in the trailer.

    Gotta say i think that trailer makes it look like the drizzling ****s.

    Will give it a shot though.

    I was about to say the lookalikes weren't the best, but Pete Dunne was really obvious


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,406 ✭✭✭ montyrebel


    that looks worse than the video she released with brad maddox and xavier woods


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,756 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    As long as we don't see it every 5 minutes like the previous clip from the movie

    Actually its out on regular release in the UK/Ireland on March 1st so probably no need to get to that straight away.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,921 ✭✭✭ Monokne


    Wonder how widely released it will be.

    He wasn't at the Cannes showing so I'd doubt it....

    He seems busy filming the Hobbs spin-off movie.

    I know very little about the movie review websites, but isn't Rottentomatoes just whether you liked the movie or not? As in 86 out of 100 said yes as opposed to no when asked if they liked it

    If it is then it could easily be given 4/5 out of 10 then for marks right?

    Rotten Tomatoes deems whether critics reviews are positive are negative. What this means is 86% of the critics who have reviewed this film have said it's good or great or some similar superlative. It does not involve a voting system, or indeed any input from the general public.

    Personal taste obviously accounts for something, but broadly speaking, a film that gets 70%+ on RT is going to be worth a watch.
