Both Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro are known for their movies about professional boxers. As we know Stallone is known for Rocky Balboa in the Rocky series and De Niro is known for playing Giacobbe “Jake” LaMotta in the movie “Raging Bull”.
Grudge match is about two boxing rivals who eventually come out of retirement to fight each other in one final bout. They split two fights while they were young and in their prime, but never fought each other the third time to see who was the better man of the two. Fast forward nearly 30 years and both boxers are back at it.
Sylvester Stallone plays Henry ‘Razor’ Sharp and De Niro plays Billy ‘The Kid’ McDonnen. Other actors/actresses apart of this Rocky/Raging Bull comedy are Kim Basinger, Jon Berthan, Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin.
With amazing actors apart of this project, this movie is sure to be a great movie for the family to go see this holiday season. The release date for this movie as of right now is schedule for Christmas Day 2013. It’s surely set to be one of the best holiday comedies we’ve seen in a couple of years.
It’s about time they put Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro in a boxing movie together with them being the fighters. It’s kind of like Rambo and The Terminator being in the same movie. Boxing fans across the globe should be very excited about this movie.
