We’ve seen Photoshopped posters before but i think we’ve hit a new all-time low with this piece of movie marketing. It comes for Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone’s new movie – Grudge Match which according to the poster, is ‘A Rivalry 30 Years in the Making’!
On paper the cast is impressive as joining Stallone and Di Nero are Kevin Hart, Alan Arking, Kim Basinger and Jon Bernthal but i think it may be time to get some new people in to do the movie marketing! Feel free to give this poster some captions…. we can hardly contain ourselves!
If you missed the first trailer for the movie, you can head this way to find out more about the movie which is due for release 24th January.
Award-winning movie legends Oscar® winner Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone (the “Rocky” films, “The Expendables”) star as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final 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. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.
