RAGING BULL vs ROCKY BALBOA


Forget Superman vs Batman. It’s DeNiro vs Stallone in the cinematic boxing showdown of the millennium!

If you’re old enough to remember Marlon Brando’s sendup of his own portrayal of The Godfather in the movie The Freshman, you’re old enough to remember Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky. So, what would happen if DeNiro and Stallone fought it out, mano a mano, center of the ring, may the better man win?

Forget Superman vs Batman. It’s DeNiro vs Stallone in the cinematic boxing showdown of the millennium!

If you’re old enough to remember Marlon Brando’s sendup of his own portrayal of The Godfather in the movie The Freshman, you’re old enough to remember Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky. So, what would happen if DeNiro and Stallone fought it out, mano a mano, center of the ring, may the better man win?
 
“Grudge Match” opens Christmas Day. Stallone first played “Rocky Balboa” in 1976, receiving Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Screenplay. Four years later, DeNiro won his second Best Actor Oscar for playing Jake LaMotta in the Martin Scorcese film “Raging Bull.”
 
“Gutsy move to go without a bra,” quips Stallone to De Niro at the start of the bout. “I took a dump on your porch,” replies De Niro. Stallone, now 67, is only seven years removed from “Rocky Balboa,” which took in $155 million worldwide as the sixth Rocky film. De Niro and Stallone have starred in one film together, which was 1997′s crime drama “Cop Land.”

De Niro was 69 when “Grudge Match” was shot last winter in New Orleans (though set in Pittsburgh).

Warner had originally planned to open in January but decided last summer to go for a Christmas opening. Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution, declared at the time, “Results of our early screenings have been outstanding, giving us every indication that ‘Grudge Match’ is a movie that can excel during the Christmas play period.”

Kevin Hart portrays the fight promoter. Alan Arkin serves as Stallone’s trainer and Kim Basinger plays Stallone’s ex.
