Exclusive video interview with Grudge Match stars Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro

Next Friday two titans of the boxing movie will step into the ring together as Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro square off in director Peter Segal’s (Get Smart) sports comedy Grudge Match, and thanks to James Kleinmann we’ve got an exclusive video interview with the two screen legends, which you can check out below…

In Grudge Match, De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight.  Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers.  Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. (Kevin Hart; Think Like a Man), seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral.  The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event.  Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.


Grudge Match opens int he UK on January 24th and also stars Alan Arkin (Argo), Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead).
