Here’s a much better poster for the upcoming sports comedy Grudge Match
, which opens this December. As you’re going to see in the rest of this report, it’s all about Henry “Razor” Sharp aka Sylvester Stallone
, and Billy “The Kid” McDonnen, played by Robert De Niro
. Head inside to check them out!
Directed by Peter Segal
, and written by Tim Kelleher
and Rodney Rothman
, the movie follows two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight.
As you already had a chance to see from the official trailer
, each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers.
And here’s the rest of the plot:
Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.
Also starring Kevin Hart
, Alan Arkin
, Kim Basinger
, Jon Bernthal
and Camden Gray
, Grudge Match
hits theaters on December 25th, 2013.
