Stallone & De Niro Against The Ropes In Latest ‘Grudge Match’ Poster

Oscar-winners Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro are again featured (and badly photoshopped) in a brand new one-sheet for their sporting rivalry comedy GRUDGE MATCH. The film reunites the duo, famed for their portrayals boxing legends in ROCKY and RAGING BULL respectively, for the first time since 1997’s superb COP LAND. The film also features the supporting cast of Alan Arkin, Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger, Jon Bernthal and is directed by GET SMART’s Peter Segal.

Check out the poster below and scroll down a little official synopsis:

De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight.  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.  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.

GRUDGE MATCH is set for release in the US on the 25th December and the UK 17th January 2014.

He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
