Here's the first official image of De Niro and Stallone in Grudge Match

2 years agoby:

If Stallone and De Niro get into a fight, not a movie fight, a real fight-- who wins? Wait, is that fair? Stallone has definitely kept himself in pretty good shape for almost being 70-years old. De Niro also isn't known as an "action star" so he doesn't feel the need to keep up the bod.

What about ROCKY vs. RAGING BULL? Actually you can expect to see a little of that in GRUDGE MATCH, a film that sees two aging boxing legends going head to head for one final match. Director Peter Segal says that he found training footage from both of the actors from their respective boxing films and spliced them into his film. Obviously as flashbacks, there's not going to be any weird hologram stuff here.

Both actors admitted to being fairly comfortable taking on one another in the ring. The don't look too comfortable in the first official photo from the film. De Niro is doing De Niro while Stallone is well, doing Stallone. Alan Arkin is there along with Kevin Hart and Jon Bernthal. Check it out below.

Man is there any doubt Stallone would pulverize De Niro....none. Truly I hope Stallone took it easy on him during any fight scenes I can't imagine De Niro even being able to handle sparing with Stallone. Hell I love De Niro but he is not the physical action start anymore he is the psychological scare the shit out of you type of star these days.

Trailer

There was a trailer online about a month or so ago, but got taken down very quickly - did no else here see it? Basically it looked like a comedy remake of Rocky Balboa. No, really. A comedy version of Rocky Balboa, I shit you not.

Looking at Sly's body I'd say Sly wins, hands down, but then you look at Bobby's " You talkin' to me? What's the matta wit' ya?" face and I'm not so sure anymore.

What I'm worried is the boxing scene. I'm sure Sly still have it in him to box for numerous rounds. But what about De Niro? I hope he won't collapse on the ring.

Sounds cool

What a great concept.
Stallone is in serious shape - a great endorsement for performance enhancing 'medication' :)

Cant we Just Enjoy this?

Guys, if your expecting this to be some serious drama that blends Raging Bull and Rocky together... give your head a shake.. But please for once, try to take it for what it is, a great concept, with 2 great actors, that want to have some fun with this. Im sure it will have some good moments, and some bad ones, some cheese lines bout old age and so on!

Get a bag of popcorn, and just enjoy it!!

I'm not saying it's going to be good or bad - but it sounds like you've preemptively reviewed the entire movie based on the premise. What if it's a great concept, and executed horribly?

How about everybody waits until there's an actual movie to have an opinion about?

I'm willing to bet just about anything that this movie is not just bad, but terrible. It's a shame because the concept is fantastic, but there are just too many hints that this is going to be some stupid goofball comedy that basically has De Niro and Stallone parodying themselves for 2 hours. First, Peter Segal is directing. Secondly, Kevin Hart has a huge role as the promoter that brings this whole thing together (wonder if that actually means he'll have the 'lead but not lead' role). Third,

Third, the studio has pushed this forward and back about two times already indicating they don't know wtf to do with this thing. And finally, just look at that picture. Bleh.

Uhhhh ....

So it's a comedy? I didn't think that when I first heard about this months ago. I actually love both actors, love Arkin and think Kevin Hart is really funny, but this movie has stink all over it. Why have both Deniro and Pacino had so many stinkers in the last 5-10 years? Did they just get lazy? Stallone is Stallone, although I wish he would go back and do more films like Copland. It's time to let Rocky go. It's probably time to let Rambo go. Maybe Stallone as a villain in a Tarantino

Guys, don't get your hopes up.

Did you miss the part where it said Peter Segal is the director? I mean, come on. De Niro has been slumming for years - this looks like someone in Hollywood had the lazy idea of pitting the Raging Bull against Rocky -- it effectively corners the older viewer demographic (not many movies are made exclusively for older guys around the age of De Niro/Stallone, so when they are, they often do big business). This is gonna suck, mark my words, I hate to be a Debbie Downer but I'll be very surprised

I'm really looking forward to seeing this. In real life though, Stallone would beat the hell out of De Niro

Now this seems like a far better clash of titans than De Niro vs...Travolta. Still trying to get the horrible taste of Killing Season out of my mouth.

EDIT: So this is pretty much an out-and-out comedy? Huh. Colour me disappointed that these two titans have to face off in the context of a joke.
