With the summer movie season winding down, it's time to start looking forward to the fall and winter releases, one of which features the highly-anticipated big-screen pairing of Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in Grudge Match. The iconic actors play Billy "The Kid" McDonnen and Henry "Razor" Sharp, two former boxers whose careers came to a sudden halt when Razor announced his retirement in 1983, just before their third fight together. Kevin Hart stars as boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. who sets up the boxing event of a lifetime by getting these fighters back in the ring, 30 years later. Warner Bros. has released the first photo from this comedy, directed by Peter Segal, featuring the three main actors. We'll have to wait until the first trailer to see what Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone look like in the ring, so stay tuned.
Grudge Match was released December 25th, 2013 and stars Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone, Jon Bernthal, Kim Basinger, Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Corrina Roshea, Stephanie Grote. The film is directed by Peter Segal.
