Things just went from “Oooo!” to “Aaay!” as Robert DeNiro has stepped in to fill the shoes of James Gandolfini in what Vulture calls an incredibly depressing miniseries, remade from a British production a few years old.
As if that screenshot wasn’t explanation enough - GRUDGE MATCH (trailer from Slashfilm) is the tale of Robert DeNiro and Sylvester Stallone playing two retired boxers who never fought a 3rd time to decide who was best in their prime. Now, they will fight in old age for $100,000 they both desperately need.
It doesn’t actually look that bad (a ringing endorsement), to be honest, and the addition of Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart seems to help keep this afloat.
One hot movie…
