Available today on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand, Hands of Stone, which follows the life of Roberto Durán, played by Edgar Ramírez, the Panamanian fighter who, with the help of his trainer Ray Arcel, played by award winner Robert De Niro, 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 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 más’ (‘no more’).
Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and shot in both Panama City and New York, this dynamic bio-pic brings a true-life tale from the golden age of boxing to life – chronicling the life of boxing legend Roberto Durán and his rivalry with Sugar Ray Leonard, played by Usher Raymond. Aside from Ramírez, De Niro and Usher, the film also stars Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin, John Turturro, Riben Blades, and more.
The discs come with special features include the featurette Roberto Durán: A Boxing Legend, A Nation’s Pride, deleted scenes, and two video clips of the film’s title song – “Champions” lyric video featuring Usher, and “Champions” lyric video featuring Ruben Blades.
