Grudge Match Trailer – Stallone vs De Niro
Jake Lamotta vs Rocky Balboa
Peter Segal (50 first dates) directs Grudge Match, a new sports comedy that centres round two boxing Legends, Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (Robert De Niro) and Henry “Razor” Sharp (Sylvester Stallone) in a grudge match 30 years in making. The two Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight had each scored a victory against one another 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. 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.
