A Trailer And Release Date Has Dropped For The 'Andre The Giant' Doco

Wrestling fans rejoice; we finally have a trailer and a release date for the Andre The Giant documentary.

The film about the larger than live character has been in the works at HBO for sometime, and judging by the trailer; it's well worth the wait.

Known as 'The Eighth Wonder Of The World', Andre the Giant, born Andre Roussimoff in Grenoble, France took the wrestling world by storm in the 1980s, before making his mark in Hollywood.

Standing over 7-foot and weighing an astonishing 226kgs during his heyday, Andre lived a fast, and at times physically and mentally troubled life before his early death at the age of 46.

Andre The Giant is set for release on April 10.
