Usher was spotted out last night at a private screening for his upcoming movie, Hands Of Stone and he seemed to be in good sprits. I would think so because this latest boxing movie where he plays legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, is really good! I had the opportunity to check it out the other day and let’s just say, you’re in for a treat! I don’t even like sports or boxing all like that and I was really into it lol.
Usher along with his mom Jonetta Patton and Keri Hilson was at the screening to show support. It was held at Phipps Plaza AMC where he greeted movie-goers and chatted about the film. Check out a few snaps inside…

At age 72, legendary trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) comes out of retirement to coach world-class Panamanian boxer Roberto Durán (Edgar Ramirez). Arcel becomes a mentor to the ferocious fighter, convincing him that winning ultimately comes down to strategy. After scoring knockout after knockout, Duran prepares for a bout against Sugar Ray Leonard, the undefeated lightweight champion. Five months later, on Nov. 25, 1980, the two titans meet for an infamous rematch that makes boxing history. Hits theaters August 26th!
