I’ve been a little absent from the site for the past week. Part in due to lack of time and then at the end of the last week I had a medical issue pop up that I’m dealing with and just have not had the energy to post anything. I’m taking it easy today and making a quick post of the trailer for Peter Segal’s upcoming boxing comedy, Grudge Match, starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro. It looks like light-hearted fun and is something that helps raises the spirits a bit, especially since I’m a huge fan of Stallone and a trailer for a new movie he’s in will always be met with some degree of enthusiasm from me.
The pairing of Stallone and DeNiro as boxing enemies with a grudge definitely plays into their film careers since both have been in famous boxing movies, Stallone obviously for Rocky and DeNiro in Raging Bull. So who do you think is going to win? Rocky or Jake La Motta?
My money is on Rocky. Check out the trailer below.
