Austin-Punk News from the WWE ’13 Reveal, WWE Stars Host Screening

– Randy Orton, David Otunga and The Miz worked WWE Studios’ screening of The Day in Los Angeles last night, in front of several hundred fans. The movie hits theaters on August 29th but the cast of the movie is already pushing for a sequel or a prequel.

The Day actors Dominic Monaghan, Ashley Bell and Michael Eklund, plus director Doug Aarniokoski spoke at the screening. Aarniokoski revealed that they shot the movie in just two weeks.

– WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin was indeed in Los Angeles yesterday for the WWE ’13 roster reveal but at best we can tell, he did not appear for the crowd. Austin tweeted on his way to the event and noted that he hoped there were no “punks” there.

At the roster reveal, Punk asked the fans who would win between himself and Austin. The fans cheered Punk’s name, according to reports from those in attendance. They hyped the fact that Austin has signed 25,000 copies of the video game for the special Austin 3:16 collector’s edition.

    if austin vs punk did happen, id like to see austin come out on top, but maybe austin would put punk over who knows

  • V-R-A

    I work in the industry and 2-weeks for an indie film like ‘The Day’ is standard. You hear about movies like The Dark Knight Rises taking months and you think that’s standard. It’s not. I worked on a feature that was filmed in 17 days. Smaller movies don’t have the budget to waste time. No offense Really, but a lot of filmmakers love what they do. If they believe in a project they will be a part of it. Even if they have to film it very quickly or under budget.

    Those fans are sadly mistaken because Austin 3:16 would Whoop Punk’s Ass.

  • Really

    Because all the best films are filmed in two weeks. If they are going to rush it and have a rubbish end product, what is the point of doing it
