Sylvester Stallone will once again play a professional boxer on the big screen, but this time he's going up against Goodfellas star Robert De Niro.
Grudge Match, also starring funnyman Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger and Alan Arkin, is about a pair of aging boxing rivals who are coaxed out of retirement to fight one final time, 50 years after their last match.
The last time Stallone portrayed a boxer on screen was in the 2006 sequel Rocky Balboa. Grudge Match hits theaters Christmas Day.
