Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled this new retro poster for Peter Segal’s ’Grudge Match,’ which stars Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger and Alan Arkin. Set for a December 25th release, the story revolves around retired boxers Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, lifelong bitter rivals who are coaxed out of retirement and into the ring for one final grudge match – 50 years after their last title fight.
In “Grudge Match,” De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, 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.

Hans Zimmer Talks ‘Batman Vs. Superman’; Says He Hasn’t Been Asked By Zack Snyder To Score The Film Yet
During a recent chat with Vulture, Hans Zimmer opened up about the possibility of him scoring Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Batman Vs Superman’ movie. Given that the composer scored Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and this summer’s ‘Man of Steel,’ Zimmer is faced with the decision of whether to revisit the Dark Knight or step aside and let someone else tackle the character. At this moment in time he said that he hasn’t made a final decision on whether to score ‘Batman vs. Superman’ just yet, “Honestly, I’m just sort of grappling with that right now. Quite seriously, the thought right now is that no, I don’t want to go and take what I did with Chris and just plonk it into another movie. There isn’t one good reason to do it, and there are so many good reasons not to do it.”
In general, Hans Zimmer reveals he’s a little burned out on the notion of sequels after working on so many movies in the Dark Knight and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises. “I didn’t really enjoy myself much on Pirates 4,” Zimmer admitted. “And I love that with The Dark Knight Rises, Chris said, ‘That’s it.'”
