Coming Distractions: Robert De Niro returns to the boxing ring in the Hands Of Stone trailer

21 July 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In 1980, Robert De Niro delivered an Oscar-winning performance as Jake La Motta in Raging Bull, the Martin Scorsese masterpiece that set a high water mark for both biographical narratives and boxing films. For many years, the compound image of De Niro and a boxing ring was indisputably evocative of cinematic excellence. And then, in 2013, he starred alongside Sylvester Stallone in Grudge Match, and that compound image suddenly had an unpleasant amount of bodily fluids splattered across it.

Now, he’s trying to clean up some of that mess. In Hands Of Stone, the 72-year-old veteran actor plays Ray Arcel, the master trainer who stood in the corner of 18 world champions. One of those was Roberto Durán, the Panamanian fighter who came in fifth in The Ring’s countdown of the sport’s greatest talents of the past eight decades. Written and directed by Venezuelan filmmaker Jonathan Jakubowicz ...

Hands of Stone Trailer Brings Robert de Niro Back to the Boxing Ring

21 July 2016 7:46 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While the sport of boxing may not be as popular as mixed martial arts (Mma) these days, boxing movies are still quite popular. Sylvester Stallone teamed up with Michael B. Jordan and director Ryan Coogler to breathe new life into the Rocky franchise with last year's critical and box office hit Creed, and this year fans will be treated to a biopic of one of the sport's all-time greats, Roberto Duran. Today we have the first trailer for The Weinstein Company's Hands of Stone, which brings this boxer's epic journey to life.

Hands of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year&#8208old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the Wbc welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, »

Robert De Niro Returns To The World Of Boxing In Hands Of Stone Trailer

21 July 2016 1:24 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

I’m seeing a strange pattern here. Both Robert De Niro And Sylvester Stallone took up the boxing gloves again for Grudge Match, then Sly took on the trainer role in Creed. Now the one time Jake La Motta is following suit with Hands of Stone, playing the real life boxing trainer Ray Arcel as he trains Panamanian fighter Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), telling the story of Duran’s 1980 title bout with Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz (Secuestro Express), Hands of Stone promises to be everything a good boxing movie should be: tense, exciting, nail biting, and above all else, a compelling under dog story. On top of that, De Niro appears to be on top form, and after the dire Dirty Grandpa, we need to believe in him again. Released: 26th August (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

"This is inexplicable!" The Weinstein Company has unveiled the full-length, official trailer for Hands of Stone, one of the two major boxing movies this year (the other being Miles Teller's Bleed For This). The film tells the true story of professional boxer Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramirez, who hails from Panama.

Edgar Ramirez Has Hands Of Stone And Nerves Of Steel In New Trailer For Boxing Flick

20 July 2016 2:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last year, it was Southpaw and the rather excellent Creed that enthralled the moviegoing masses, but 2016 is cooking up a one-two punch of its own. Before Miles Teller learns to Bleed For This in November, it is Edgar Ramirez who will step into the ring for Hands of Stone, The Weinstein Company’s starry biopic that finds Robert De Niro in the role of accomplished trainer, Ray Arcel.

De Niro, who so brilliantly captured the imagination of a generation in Raging Bull, will find himself on the other side of the ropes in Jonathan Jakubowicz’s feature. It’s one he wrote and directed, too, chronicling the inspired journey of Panamanian boxer, Roberto Durån.

Celebrated as one of the finest fighters the sport has ever produced, Edgar Ramirez will don the boxing gloves in TWC’s feature film, as it charts Durån’s rise and rise to the tip-top of the boxing hierarchy, »
