Hands of Stone Trailer

"This is inexplicable!" The Weinstein Company has unveiled the full-length, official trailer for Hands of Stone, one of the two major boxing movies this year (the other being Miles Teller's Bleed For This). The film tells the true story of professional boxer Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramirez, who hails from Panama. Durán fought predominantly during the 80s and is still considered one of the greatest boxers of all-time, earning the nickname "Hands of Stone" during his career. The cast includes Robert De Niro as trainer Ray Arcel, plus Usher Raymond IV as Sugar Ray Leonard, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, and John Turturro. The first teaser didn't show much, but this one gives us a good look at what to expect in this story about a legendary boxer. It seems as much about Durán as it does about Sugar Ray Leonard, too.

Here's the second official trailer for Jonathan Jakubowicz's Hands of Stone, direct from YouTube:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Hands of Stone here, to compare the footage from these.

Follows the life of Roberto Durán (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year‐old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words "no mas" (no more.) Hands of Stone (also known as Manos de Piedra) is both written and directed by Venezuelan filmmaker Jonathan Jakubowicz, of Secuestro express previously. This hasn't shown at any film festivals yet. The Weinstein Company will release Jakubowicz's Hands of Stone in theaters starting August 26th this year. Thoughts?
