Amazing news! I didn’t think a premiere would happen because of the SAG-AFTRA but I’m glad Zac and the cast will be able to have a premiere for the movie!
DALLAS NEWS – The world premiere of The Iron Claw, featuring actors from the movie and wrestling legend Kevin Von Erich will be Nov. 8 in Dallas, A24 announced Wednesday.
Additional details such as the venue and showtime have not been released. An A24 spokeswoman said more details will follow.
The biographical drama centers around Kevin Von Erich and his brothers, who started their pro wrestling careers in Dallas. The film is scheduled for nationwide release on Dec. 22.
Von Erich and his family are expected to appear at the premiere, according to A24. A family spokesman said the Von Erich family is working out the details and will view the movie this week.
A24 also announced that director Sean Durkin along with actors Zac Efron (Kevin Von Erich) and Jeremy Allen White (Kerry Von Erich) will attend the premiere.

His public appearance in Dallas marked his return to Texas. He recently moved from Kauai, Hawaii, to a ranch he bought near the south-central Texas town of Boerne.
