FIRST PICTURE: Rocky takes on a Raging Bull

February 24th, 2013 by Marc 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
