Leaked Trailer! ‘Grudge Match,’ Rocky vs. Jake La Motta

08.12.2013 | By |

I thought this movie would never get made. I never thought Sylvester Stallone would actually do a knock-off Rocky movie and I never thought Robert De Niro would ever return to a boxing film. I was obviously wrong on all levels.  Read More

First poster of Robert De Niro in ‘Red Lights’

First poster of Robert De Niro in 'Red Lights'

Here is another sign that Hispanics are climbing the Hollywood echelons …. Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés has a new thriller entitled RED LIGHTS where the legendary actor Robert De Niro one of the protagonists. Here is the first movie poster showing De Niro.

A psychological thriller which explores the human brain’s perception mechanisms and the diffuse frontiers between belief and science, RED LIGHTS starts out from the experiences of two rationalist scientists (Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver) who dissect phenomena from the metapsychic world, and the clash of forces with a world famous psychic they bring about. They must deal with the possibility of the supernatural when they meet with renowned psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro). The past and the present of each the protagonists contain still unrevealed shadows, setting in train a dark story of growing tension, full of unexpected twists and turns.

The film was at Sundance Film Festival and had good reviews, but they say that the ending really leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Cortes is expected to set the end when the film opens this summer.

“Red Lights” also stars Elizabeth Olsen and Toby Jones and opens July 13.

De Niro’s Globes speech: racist or dark comedy?

De Niro's Globes speech: racist or dark comedy?

In what had to be one of the most bizarre and most controversial acceptance speeches in the history of the Golden Globes, legendary thespian Robert De Niro, who was awarded the honorary ‘Cecil B. DeMille’ award for his lifetime work, quipped, in what seemed bad taste, about the deportation of HFPA organizers, waiters, including Spanish actor and Oscar winner Javier Bardem.

“More Hollywood Foreign Press members would have been here, but they were deported just before the show. Along with most of the waiters… and Javier Bardem,” De Niro said after being presented the award by Matt Damon, earning grumbles from the Hollywood crowd.

“And I hope you all have your papers in order, because Homeland Security will be checking them right after they finish full-body scans of Megan Fox,” De Niro added.

The atmosphere in the Beverly Hilton became cold and dour which left many in the audience puzzled.

When asked backstage what the intention of the jokes were, De Niro said, “I thought this would be more fun for this kind of night.” He obviously raised eyebrows with his ‘humor’.

Robert De Niro squandered a great opportunity to use the forum to thank all those who contributed to his artistic career and inspire a new generation of actors. But instead, the star of classic films such as ‘The Godfather II’ and ‘Taxi Driver,’ used his time on stage to include coarse remarks about immigrants.

I get that Ricky Gervais’ whole comedy repertoire has been built on being malicious and cruel, but what significance did it have for Robert De Niro? For anyone who has ever spoken to him, you know he’s a man of few words. He does not like interviews and barely says anything. So what in heaven’s name was that speech all about?

The aforementioned parts of his speech seemed out of place with what the moment represented and the environment he was in. It was supposed to be special. I wanted to be roused, inspired and galvanized by the man who had built a body of work that will most likely never be repeated again for generations. All I ended up getting was a befuddled look while I winced, squirmed and grimaced at the marring of De Niro, the Hollywood icon.

It was uncomfortable and at moments painful to listen to, but if he keeps on making films like ‘Little Fockers,’ then redemption is a deed that will never arrive.
