Apple has just released a new trailer for the critically-acclaimed film, The Wrestler, which hits theaters on December 17. Click below to get your first glance at one of the year's most talked-about films, and the Oscar-potential performance from Mickey Rourke.

The Wrestler centers on Randy "The Ram" Robinson, a 1980s-era star pro wrestler who has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again. In an effort to build a new life, Robinson takes a job at a deli, moves in with an aging stripper and tries to build a relationship with her son. But the prospect of a rematch with his old nemesis the Ayatollah proves too tempting to resist, even if it means risking his life.
