FIRST PICTURE: Rocky takes on a Raging Bull

February 24th, 2013 by bash Comments

A new image from the set of Grudge Match, a boxing movie starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, has turned up online.

New Orleans Hornets basketball player Robin Lopez tweeted the first photo of the two actors on the set of director Peter Segal’s new film which revolves around retired boxers Billy “The Kid” McGuigan and Henry “Razor” Sharp, lifelong bitter rivals who are coaxed out of retirement and into the ring for one final grudge match – 50 years after their last title fight.

Stallone, ofcourse, is most famous for his Rocky movies while De Niro starred in the powerful boxing drama Raging Bull.

Grudge Match hits cinema screens on November 15, and co-stars Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger and Alan Arkin.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
