Hands of Stone trailer is in for a serious fight
Boxer Roberto Durán’s infamous bout with Sugar Ray Leonard in 1980 will be recreated in the forthcoming drama Hands of Stone, which released its full-length trailer on Wednesday.
Starring Edgar Ramirez as Durán and Robert De Niro as his trainer Ray Arcel, Hands of Stone tracks Durán’s boxing career, which began in 1968. His fight with Leonard in November of 1980, the second of three bouts between the boxers, is one of the most famous in the sport’s history, and ended with Durán turning away from Leonard and saying the words “no más” (Spanish for “no more”). The phrase became a cultural touchstone, for sports fans and non-sports fans alike.
In addition to Ramirez and De Niro (who both costarred in last year’s Joy), Hands of Stone also features John Turturro, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Ellen Barkin. The film is set for release on Aug. 26 via The Weinstein Company. Watch the film’s full trailer below.
