Fox Searchlight held the premiere of "The Wrestler" on Tuesday at the Academy Of Motion Arts & Sciences in Beverly Hills.

The cast of the movie, led by Mickey Rourke, Marisa Tomei, and Evan Rachel Wood and several wrestling legends including Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, Greg Valentine, and Brutus Beefcake were joined by other celebrities such as 50 Cent, Marlan Wayans, Jared Leto, and Rachel Weisz on the red carpet.

The movie is now playing in theaters in Los Angeles and in New York and on Dec. 26 it will be available in other theaters in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. It rolls out to hundreds of other theaters across the nation on Jan. 9, 16, and 23.

We have 29 photos from the red carpet arrival and after party where you can even see Rourke posing with the wrestling Superstars.

And oh yeah, looks like the Nature Boy Ric Flair has another girlfriend. Maybe soon-to-be wife number four? Or is it five? You can check out all the pictures at
