3752Koch Records is pleased to announce the release of the soundtrack to one of 2009’s most acclaimed films, “The Wrestler”, in theatres February 2009.

Back in the late 80’s, Randy “The Ram” Robinson (Mickey Rourke) was a headlining professional wrestler. Now, twenty years later, he ekes out a living performing for handfuls of diehard wrestling fans in high school gyms and community centers around New Jersey. Director Darren Aronofsky presents a powerful portrait of a battered dreamer, who despite himself and the odds stacked against him, lives to be a hero once again in the only place he considers home – inside the ring. The film was produced by Scott Franklin and Darren Aronofsky.

“The Wrestler” had its North American premiere at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival and won the Golden Lion at the 2008 Venice Film Festival. Directed by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream) and written by Rob Siegel, “The Wrestler” stars Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.

Mickey Rourke recently won a Golden Globe for his riveting portrayal of “The Ram” and he is nominated for an Oscar.

Director and Producer Notes:

“I love the music presented on this Soundtrack. Put together, it helps to tell the story of The Ram. Each song was chosen to push the movie forward. “Darren Aronofsky (Film Director / Producer and Executive Soundtrack Producer)

“You could easily see this Soundtrack being the playlist, or mix tape, from any 80’s era icon. Any fan of 80’s hair metal will appreciate the mix of hits and more obscure tracks with a little current hip hop thrown in. It perfectly tells the story of Randy “The Ram” Robinson’s past.” Scott Frankin (Film Producer and Executive Soundtrack Producer)
