Watch: Sly Stallone vs. Robert De Niro in First 'Grudge Match' Trailer
"Time to train." Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for the movie Grudge Match, starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as old timer boxers (Rocky and Raging Bull, but of course) who end up fighting each other one last time in a grudge match for the title. This plays much more like a broad mainstream comedy with supporting actors like Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin knocking out a few jokes throughout. This isn't exactly the triumphant return of these two greats in any kind of dramatic "they're back!" way, but it looks like a lot of fun. I'll probably be seeing it. Give it a look and tell us what you think?
Here's the first official trailer for Peter Segal's Grudge Match, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:
Grudge Match is directed by Peter Segal (Tommy Boy, My Fellow Americans, 50 First Dates) with a script from "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin and "Late Show with David Letterman" scribe Rodney Rothman. The story unites Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, known for iconic turns as boxers in Rocky and Raging Bull respectively, as two bitter boxing rivals who are coaxed back into the ring for a grudge match 50 years after they fought for the title. Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal also star in the film which Warner Bros. Pictures will bring to theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th, this winter. Cool?
