GRUDGE MATCH 

AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD FROM 2nd JUNE 2014

OWN IT FIRST ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD FROM 19th MAY

Past-their-prime boxers pack a comic punch in Grudge Match, available on Blu-ray and DVD from 2nd June 2014, also available digitally from 19th May 2014.

Grudge Match stars Oscar® winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Silver Linings Playbook) and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone (The Rocky films, The Expendables) as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match. Peter Segal (Get Smart, 50 First Dates) directs the comedy, which also stars Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) as Dante Slate, Jr.; Oscar® winner Alan Arkin (Argo) as Razor’s former trainer, Louis “Lightning” Conlon, who gets to put Razor through his paces again; and Oscar® winner Kim Basinger (L.A. Confidential) as Sally Rose, who was once the love of Razor’s life.

In Grudge Match, Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (De Niro) and Henry “Razor” Sharp (Stallone) are 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., 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.

  • The Bull & The Stallion
  • In the Ring with Kevin Hart
