The trailer for Grudge Match puts Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in the ring for one final bout

Sep. 12, 2013by:

Yesterday we received our first official look at Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone in GRUDGE MATCH. I also kind of had a feeling that today we would get a trailer, and in fact we got one.

What's the verdict? In my opinion, not too bad. There's obvious mo-cap when the younger versions of the actors are shown. The jokes aren't of the laugh out loud variety. I like how it begins. Both of the boxing legends accidentally reunite when they are both asked to do some work for a video game. That leads to the guys reigniting their feud and eventually a final match.

I was hoping yesterday that Jon Bernthal would be playing De Niro's son, and he is. Also, is it just me or is Kim Basinger still looking pretty good?

Synopsis: A pair of aging boxing rivals are coaxed out of retirement to fight one final bout -- 50 years after their last match.

GRUDGE MATCH is due in theaters on December 25, 2013.

Wasn't that the exact plot of Rocky Balboa?

Make another Rambo.

Short and black

Looks pretty good, seems like it doesn't take itself too seriously...plus it's Raging Bull vs Rocky!

It looks better than I thought, but isn't that first part the plot for the last Rocky??

Looks surprisingly entertaining

Solid cast round up on this. And Bernthal playing Deniro's son is a nice touch.

De Niro in a luminescent green motion capture suit is somehow less undignified than Ben Stiller stabbing him in the Little Bob with a syringe. I'm not a Kevin Hart fan, but I think Alan Arkin will go a good way to making this pretty watchable.

Gotta say

A $10 ticket is a steal compared to the $75 they're charging for the Mayweather fight this weekend. Also I haven't seen my abs since prom in the early 90s so once again thanks for that, Sly.

LOL! A lot of funny one liners in there. You can't be my trainer, I believe you ate my trainer. I took a dump on your porch. What was Jesus like? Was he cool? LOL! Cool to see Jon Bernthal in there from The Walking Dead. We even got Kim Basinger, and LL Cool J. Looks to be like a fun time. Hopefully so.

I like it, but they gotta stop using that song in trailers, it's the new "Let the bodies hit the floor" curse/ kiss of death

Yes of course the movie buff in me wants to see this, hell the movie buff in me is just glad to see DeNiro not in shit.

But judging from the trailer this kind of looks like shit. We have Rocky and The Raging Bull fighting for some new title? This doesnt need generic shit Kevin Hart and Macklemore and Lewis being pumped. 20 years late guys... Like I said I will see this, I'm excited to see it but after all the dissapoitments this year im starting not to have expectations, if I did I think we

Play it to the Bone?

I would be surprised if this even close to as good as the last Rocky film.

Even if it turns out to be not-so-good, I have to see these legends together!

BTW, IMDb says the release date is this Christmas.

I' m excited to see this

Should be fun at the least. Although i already know how it will end, deniro s charactar clearly has issues with his son, Stallone will ultimately win the match while deniro wins the love of his son back, so they both win, its a feelgood movie all the way.

Looks better than I expected it to be.

I can already tell that Arkin is going to be my favorite character in this.

The trailer certainly played to their strengths as actors. I still fully expect this movie to be saturated with stale old-man humor, but they didn't include a bunch of that in the trailer (just a little).

IMO Kevin hart sucks. I can't stand the guy, and I don't think he's funny at all.

Wrong again

I thought supposed to be some serious movie, but now that I see it's a comedy and after seeing the trailer, I'm in.
