Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro star as

Sylvester Stallone is stepping into the movie boxing ring one more time. Don't worry, though, this is not "Rocky 7."

Robert De Niro is stepping into the movie boxing ring one more time. Don't worry, though, this is not "Raging Bull 2."

It's "Grudge Match," and it features Stallone and De Niro as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one last fight against each other . . . 30 years after they last threw hands at one another.

It's a comedy, folks, so don't do a complete 360 with your eye rolling. Watch the trailer below, and look for a terrific staredown line from De Niro.

The movie also stars Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin and Kim Basinger. It opens on Christmas Day.
