New York City, NY – A slew of A-list celebrities turned out Monday night (August 22) for the New York City premiere of Hands of Stone, the new film starring Robert De Niro as legendary boxing trainer Ray Arcel and Usher as boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard.
Among the star-studded crowd was power couple Beyonce´and Jay-Z. Dressed in matching ensembles, the pair came out in support of their friends, and Jigga even took it back to his Marcy days by letting a pushy fan — who was attempting to get too close to his lady — know who was boss.
For the film, De Niro’s Ray Arcel is tasked with training Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán, a professional boxer who must fight Leonard, the undefeated lightweight champion. Five months later, on November 25, 1980, they meet for a historic rematch a.k.a the No Más Fight.
Also in attendance was actor Edgar Ramirez (who plays Durán), Sugar Ray Leonard, director Jonathan Jakubowicz, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, actress Rosie Perez, and producer Harvey Weinstein.
The film is scheduled to be released this Friday, August 26, 2016, by The Weinstein Company.
