First Look at Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in GRUDGE MATCH

     February 22, 2013


When we first got word that Robert De Niro (Raging Bull) and Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) would meet in the ring as aging boxers in Grudge Match, we were curious as to what shape they both be in.  Now, thanks to the first image from the set, we have a pretty good idea.  They look a little bloody and beat up, but in more than decent enough shape to knock in the teeth of your average movie blogger.

Also starring Kim Basinger, Peter Segal’s Grudge Match opens this November 15th.  Hit the jump to check out the first look at De Niro and Stallone.

Here’s the first image from the set of Grudge Match, thanks to @w_whitehurst (via /Film):

The Tim Kelleher screenplay follows two boxing rivals, Billy “The Kid” McGuigan and Henry “Razor” Sharp, both now in their 60s.  They agree to get back into the ring for a rematch decades after their last title fight.  Kevin Hart (The 40 Year Old Virgin) also co-stars as a fight promoter.

    Interesting! Both look in shape yes, but, gonna be hard not to picture Rocky and Raging Bull in this.

      That’s kinda the point though. It’s probably the basic idea that got this film started

    LOL That BUM Robin Lopez has nothing better to do. So I guess this is gonna be a comedy that may be quite embarrassing. Deniro shouldn’t stoop to the level of Stallone.

    Is this supposed to be a drama or a comedy? serious question

    • gert

      i was wondering the same. i reckon comedy, peter segal only directed comedies so far

    This is interesting. It could either be really bad or fairly decent. DeNiro is surprisingly fit (he seemed so old in Silver Linings Playbook), but Stallone has the same ‘roid veins that he always has. We’ll see, though.

      HGH veins…please.

    Is this a comedy? I mean Kevin Hart will be funny I’m sure but is he comic relief in a drama or is this a full on comedy?
