Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz, “Hands of Stone” seems to be one of the earliest Oscar contenders for The Weinstein Company this year. The biopic is Jakubowicz’s first English-language film, and stars Robert De Niro, Édgar Ramirez, Usher Raymond, Ana de Armas, Ellen Barkin and John Turturro.
Ramirez plays Roberto Duran, the Panamanian boxer who made his debut at 16-years-old in 1968, and did not retire until age 50 in 2002. Duran is perhaps most well-known for defeating Sugar Ray Leonard (Raymond), capturing the WBC welterweight title and ultimately returning to his corner during their November rematch. After this transpired, he famously said the words “no más.”
“Hands of Stone” will be released in theaters on August 26. View the poster below.
