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.
