Maestro was f---ing phenomenal. They all were amazing,” the singer added as she acknowledged other films that were released in 2023. “I was so blown away by Zac Efron in [The Iron Claw], and at the end I cried for two hours. So my favorite movie of the year is Iron Claw.”

Efron plays the role of Kevin Von Erich in the movie, which tells the story of the "rise and fall of the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers who made a huge impact on the sport from the 1960s to the present day," per its official tagline.

Five out of six brothers in the Von Erich family suffered from a series of accidents and deaths, which became known as the “Von Erich curse.” Kevin, now 66, is the only brother in The Iron Claw movie who is still alive today.

Kevin joked to PEOPLE at the film's world premiere in Dallas in November 2023 that Efron “had a tough job. It's not easy to be me.”

An actor portraying a wrestler with decades of experience means “a whole lot to cram into a movie,” he added, but Efron "was able to do it ... he's a real star.”

Along with Efron, the film stars Holt McCallany as patriarch Fritz Von Erich, plus Jeremy Allen White as Kerry Von Erich, Harris Dickinson as David Von Erich and Stanley Simons as Mike Von Erich.

The Iron Claw is in theaters now.
