First trailer of Dave Johns in Walk Like A Panther

Playing a retired 1980s wrestler

Here's a trailer for Walk Like A Panther, a new British comedy film starring Dave Johns.

It revolves around a group of 1980s wrestlers who are forced to don the lycra one last time when their local pub is threatened by closure.

The ensemble cast also includes Jill Halfpenny, Sue Johnston, Lindsey Coulson, Julian Sands, Jason Flemyng, Michael Socha and Scroobius Pip, plus Stephen Tompkinson as the brewery boss determined to close the boozer.

Walk Like A Panther was originally touted as a sitcom starring Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan, and the band's LSF forms the soundtrack to the trailer.
