Rocky and Lil' Marie

Yep. That's Lil' Marie all grown up. Remember when Rocky gave her some advice in the first movie? My bet is she will soon return the favor.

Craig,
I have to say you are doing an amazing job! It takes a true fan to put the time and effort into this and it is a joy for all of us out here to be able to log on and see new pics and read people's comments (although some comments have been quite idiotic). Thanks for all your hard work which is just making the anticipation to December so much more fun! I myself appreciate your dedication. It is obvious you have friends on the inside with the stuff you are getting out to us...the true fans...ahead of the others. You ROCK!

I do agree that the new Rocky movie resembles the first one; and from rumors that I have read about the ending of this latest Rocky film, there will be another sequel to the Rocky franchise

That's a fairly safe bet, my friend, given that she's seen returning the favour in the trailer.

...Oh, and I love the site, keep up the good work. It's cool to have a site like this to build up anticipation for the film. I still can't quite believe I'll be able to see a brand new Rocky film. All I watched as a kid was Rocky IV, so hopefully this one will bury Rocky V and finish the series properly.

Nice work.

I think Rocky 6 could break the box office...
Titanic look out. I think Rocky 6 will be the highest grossing movie of all time. People will go see it out of curiosity. The hardcore Rocky fans will go see it. They will bring there kids. Old people will go see it they will bring there grandkids. Teenagers will go see it just so they can see a Rocky movie in theatres. This movie will be so big animals will be paying to see it. People wont just download it and watch it on there computers because they will want to get the theatre experience on this one. So the computer geeks will be there.. the jocks will be there. The rich will be there the poor will be there. It appeals to everyone. Everyone will go see this movie. No other movie brings out the emotion that this movie.. this series does. People will go see it multiple times. They will say I have to go see that again. They will be cheering in theatres for this film. This is a story about hopes and dreams and in the times we live in the Rocky story is just what the doctor ordered. It will make people feel good and we as a people need that nowadays because everything is so negative around us. The timing is perfect. The greatest story of all times is back and it will be welcomed with open arms This movie could gross a billion!!!

I can't wait for this movie. It looks great. I can't get enough feed back on this new movie. My friends and family think I am nuts. It seems like out of all of the people arond me, I am the only one excited. But, I think this should be the last one. Let him go out with pride. It should end in him beating the crap out of Dixon, but lose by decision, just like the end of part one. That would be full circle. Please, no Rocky 7. It wouldn't be believable and the movie wouldn't be the same without Stallone fighting in the ring. They already had him as a trainer in part 5. This franchise should end after this movie on a reaspectable note.

Well, living hear in Philly, actually right down the street from Sly's highschool, obviously everyone i know has a spot in their hearts for Rocky...I think this movie could top charts if it was released in this city alone, EVERYONE i know is looking forward to it. I mean people really are getting excited. I have friends from school who live in the neighborhoods it was filmed in, some who were even extras, its just really awesome. Its cool for us because everyone here has a more personal thing with Rocky, becuase its like, hes one of us. Its really awesome. BTW getting a real boxer this time for rocky to fight was a great idea, and I'm hoping we can see some cameos by Joe Frasier and Bernard Hopkins. I was thinking, people should give Sly more credit, at his age and all his experience now, he should be able to make an excellent movie.

No offence Mr Stallone, but for me this will be Rocky 3. It looks from the trailer that the rawness of the first two films is back and I say welcome to it.

Not that 3,4 and 5 were bad films on their own.

Nice idea to have Marie back.

I really hope that Rocky at least ends up with some money from this boxing match against Mason Dixon.

Does anyone know if he'll at least make a few millions from this fight.

Let him at least be rich at the end as opposed to still living in the slums of Philly.

The trailer for the new film looks great, Kudos to Stallone - the story and dialogue seems whitty and very true to the original characters - All bets look like we'll see the classic training montage scenes and a great series of fights - He knows the formula better than anyone - Lets hope the rumours of a Mr T - Clubber Lang cameo are true. The story seems to be playing Sly' character as the underdog- like the original - and in the cinema context - Nonetheless Stallone will always be a Legend- this film will confirm that.

This movie has serious potential to be one of the greatest rocky films ever made. Its the comeback story that we all love to see happen. This movie will make the character Rocky become full circle. I just have a hunch about that one. I went on the audition for this film in Philadelphia and I can tell you that the spirit of the city and its people is all over this film. I think that is why the original Rocky was such a success and that is why this film will definitely deliver a striking blow to the public. It will be very reminiscent of the first and second Rocky films with struggle, loneliness, desire and heart playing an underlying theme throughout this film. Its gonna surprise a lot of people, including the skeptics...Go Sly! Hit em with another round of Glory!

Perfect timing for this movie to come out. The world is in a dark place where it needs an underdog story to breathe new life and fire into all of us.. Rocky is everyones guilty pleasure. Through out the Rocky films we watched him struggle..we watched him become champion..we watched him fall from grace...we watched him lose everything...Now we we'll see him come full circle and be REBORN!! Its gonna be the best Christmas ever!! Thank you Sly..your the man!

Nobody can disagree that the Rocky movies have inspired and gladdened the hearts of millions of movie fans. It is refreshing to watch movies that reflect on the triumphant heart and the underdog spirit that never gives up, no matter what the odds. Stallone has embodied these qualities in these movies as well as his personal life. My hat's off to him. Can't wait to see the movie.

If you can only understand how much I seriously love the Rocky Balboa franchise. Ask my friends; better yet ask my family, they will tell you that I am still here because of those movies. I was born with a brain tumour and my life has always been very difficult and challenging and I have always loved movies that have the dignity to wake your heart up and show you how to never give up in life. Movies that would show and tell that no matter how deep down you might be in life there is always a way to get back to the top. Because of the medical condition that I was born with I always needed something that would show me and tell me not to be chicken and just tough it up. What other movies then the Rocky Balboa collection from one to five to show me just that. Because of my health I always taught it would be nice to help people who care about their health since I am learning something new everyday and recently I decided to build a website and I found out that I can do it for free on www.blogger.com so I said to my self what to hack why not share some health knowledge around. And one of my great tips is to watch this ROCKY BALBOA movie because it’s about turning the impossible into possible and if Rocky Balboa can do it the age of 60 (sixty) then anybody can.
