Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... It's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Grudge Match!
Grudge Match stars two heavyweights: Sylvester Stallone as Henry "Razor" Sharp and Robert De Niro as Billy "the kid" McDonnen. These two aging, long standing rivals have been retired from boxing for decades. When a boxing video game wants to use them for animations in an upcoming game each fighter agrees as long as the other one won't be present when shooting each other's shots.

When The Kid shows up early, Henry loses his cool and decides to leave. He decides the money isn't worth it and starts to leave. That's not good enough for the Kid. He came there just to see his old rival who he's still holding a Grudge against. They get into an altercation which gets filmed by bystanders and goes viral. The boxing world is now in shock that these two old fighters still hate each other as much as they did decades ago.

The world goes crazy and a new fight is set. The Kid wants to fight because he's been waiting for a rematch for years. Razor wants to fight because he needs the money to help take care of his old trainer and coach. The fight that started kind of as a joke has now inflated into a huge battle between two rivals that is going to clash in one huge fight where the winner takes all. Old friends will come out of the woodwork and we'll find out what their grudge match is really all about.
