For fans of Robert De Niro and his work in Raging Bull and Sylvester Stallone and his boxing efforts with Rocky, this Christmas Warner Bros. has a special present for you. Grudge Match lands and tells the story of two retired boxers (De Niro and Stallone), who get back into the ring for one last fight.

The studio has released three new photos from the film, which also features Kevin Hart as the promoter who hatches this scheme to capitalize on a rivalry that will not go away, even after the two retired three decades ago.

Now that 30 years have passed, something has changed and they are eager to return for one last Grudge Match
