Check out those three preview clips of Hands of Stone to get a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming boxing biography drama movie written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and starring Edgar Ramirez, Robert De Niro, Usher, Ruben Blades, Ellen Barkin, John Turturro, Oscar Jaenada, and Ana de Armas:
Hands of Stone – Leonard (Usher) vs Duran (Ramirez)
Hands of Stone – You’re my friend now.
Hands of Stone – Growing up to be a boxer
“The film follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year‐old 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, famously saying the words ‘no mas’ (no more).”
So do you root for Edgar Ramirez or Usher? Or do you think Robert De Niro could knock them out any time?
The film will hit theaters on August 26, 2016.
