I think "Balboa" is going to do AMAZING! Simple as that. I think it may even rival the original.

I love the Rocky series with the exception of Rocky V (5). I hope this contender is more worthy than Tommy Gun and the whole getting poor senario. And I agree with antreas train the son and let the great Rocky legacy continue. Can't wait to see what RB the movie has in store for us.

I agree with my anonymous budy. The last couple of films sly's put out have been a little on the lame-o side. Hopefully this one will not be a another flop. Please craig I beg you tell us that this one has the potential to contend with the first four movies and will blow the raunchy taste rocky 5 left out of our minds.

I have waited nearly 16 years for this day. Rocky is finally back and from the looks of it, better than ever. I think this film will have a far reaching impact on many different people. Thank you Sly for going one more round. One of the best lines I've ever heard came from Rocky 4 and I live by it in all that I do: "...goin' that one more round, when you don't think you can, could mean all the difference in your life." Thank you Sly. You're the best.

Looking good indeed. I really think this could be the great movie we all want it to be. BUT! Please! As someone said, stop encouraging a Rocky 7!

I don't doubt Sly's talent, but... One movie about an aged Rocky Balboa can be a hit. Definitely. But making ANOTHER movie about Rocky's last fight, with a 60-year old Rocky... Well, it's just not possible to make it work.

Please, let Rocky 6 ("Rocky Balboa") be the end of the series. Let the series die with dignity! Do not give the Rocky-haters out there the chans to say "I told you so"!

is it possible, that rocky is going to lose that final fight? the foto looks, as if it was taken at the end of the fight. his face is bloody, he looks sad to the crowd and also the people look sad, so is it possible, that he is NOT going to win? and in die original trailer of rocky 6, at the end, the black guy says to rocky "it's over rocky" - then rocky says "its never over" or something like that, and again the black answers "where is that from, the 80ies?" and rocky answers: "that problem are the 70ies" .... Is it possible, that Rocky loses this last one fight, and cant accept it? he remembers himself @ the 70ies, when he lost his first figh against appollo, then took revenge and won?! maybe the same will happen @ rocky 6 ? he will lose, and then be not happy because of his bad comeback and wants to fight against mason dixon again? pls tell me if am just paranoid, but looking @ the pictures and @ the texts in the trailer, my sight would make sense, do you agree with me? pls let some comments to this ! thank you ! love you rocky !!!

Why would he make rocky lose his last fight though?

August 02, 2006  
Blogger Brandi said...

Yeah, it's NEVER over. C'mon — you can't have a Rocky movie where Rocky doesn't somehow win in the end. Cuz then, what's the point? He probably loses at first, then challenges the guy again. Then maybe he'll go to a barn in Russia to pump up, and then IT'S OOOONN...

Seiously, though. I guess it depends on what the movie's going to be going for: being realistic (Rocky is too old, has to lose) or being unrealistic (Rocky can still beat the shit out of people, even when he's over 50 years old...). I'm all for unrealistic!

My prediction: There will be lots of blood and lots of doubtful moments, like in Rocky I. But in the end, Rocky will persevere.

August 02, 2006  
Blogger lovinrocky said...

It depends on what your definition of "winning" is. If you watch Rocky I without interruption and without any scenes being edited out (like they do when they play it on tv) then you know that when Rocky does not win the fight against Apollo in the end, that is not the main point. The fact is that he "went the distance with Creed." He knew he couldn't win; that wasn't the point. He wanted to prove that he wasn't just another nobody. And the climactic moment of the film was actually when Adrian told him she loved him in the ring after the fight. I have not read the script like some others, but I have a suspicion that Rocky Balboa will be similar to the first based upon the issues (again) of Rocky proving to himself, not anyone else, that he is not a nobody. You have to really watch and pay close attention to the subtle details in all of these movies without getting too caught up in the fights. Sure, like I have said before, Rocky V stunk because of the acting and the directing (Stallone should have handled that one himself). But the story was true to form in the progression of Rocky's character. I urge you to pay closer attention to the character detail (ALL of the characters) and the subtleties of each of the movies in order to get the full effect of how tremendously wonderful this entire story is.

Craig,

isn't Mr.T supposed to play a commentator in this one? I heard Sly say it on Leno himself. Although, he was fighting an opponent named XL in the script at that time. Did he change the script that radically? If this is the end, we should get updates with Drago and Tommy Gunn too.

August 02, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

sylvester stallone himself said the rocky movies aren't about boxing, they're about a guy's life.

That being said, yes rocky V, was different, but I still liked it. Just because it didn't follow the rocky formula doesn't mean it doesn't have it's place as far as the characters.

Rocky never wanted his son to box, perhaps that's why he is a businessman. Get off that silly plot line.

It would be cool if Mr. T would help train rocky in this one. Like the trailer said, it would give him some devastating punching bombs to hurt the guy with. Mr. T was good at that.

Hopefully it's the last one. Rumor has it the # 5 was supposed to be the last, but the big money people wanted to milk the franchise. hopefully stallone makes a contract or something where no one else can make a rocky.

Annon-

There's no rumor has it. You're just trying to sound smart...Very few folks in the business were excited about Rocky Balboa.

Sly was the ONLY one who can decide to do a Rocky, basically. He is Rocky.

And he's the reason there is a part 6th film. He went the distance with the powers that be and fought tooth and nail to make this film.

I really hope that the success of Rocky B. will lead to Poe. Stanley Kubrick was given a draft of that script by Stallone in the 70's and commented that it was brilliant but ultimately passed (preferring his own personal projects}. I'd like to see more original projects from Sly much in the way Clint Eastwood reinvented himself.

Hello rocky fans and Craig. I am from Australia and eagerly waiting for Rocky 6 to come out.

Today in a major newspaper in Australia there was a major story on Rocky and excellent information regarding Rocky tours, rocky 6 information and what film locations remain open in all rocky films. It also talks to the man who lives in Rocky's house -- Definately worth a look - it is as follows:

Rocky's tough territory still the same

Destination: United States

Friday morning in downtown Philadelphia, and suits with cell phones clog the 17th Street subway station.

Few board the eastbound Frankford line. The train glides through the darkness, sways north and enters harsh daylight as an elevated line.

Downtown is behind you; below are tar-topped roofs of increasingly desperate neighbourhoods.

Get off at Dauphin Street and walk down the steps and into the noisy shadows of Front Street, directly under the tracks.

Welcome to Kensington, home of the "Rocky" movies - including the upcoming Rocky Balboa, which filmed exteriors here a few weeks ago.

Little here has changed for the better since 1976, when America embraced Sylvester Stallone's improbable but uplifting tale of a down-and-out boxer who tries to defy the odds in the ring.

Sly's a millionaire now, and his Rocky character is the stuff of legend - especially in working-poor Kensington.

It remains Rocky's world. Still scrappy.

Beneath the "el" is a neighbourhood old even by Philly standards.

Colonial docks on the Delaware River provided the first residents. Shipyards fostered manufacturing, and there's been soot and sweat here since the 1700s: glassworks, sugar refineries. John B Stetson hats of cowboy and Mountie fame were manufactured in Kensington.

Kensington was always working class at best. The first Salvation Army post in the United States was established here in 1879. Individuals and industries that don't leave stay until they go down for the count.

There's a Depression look. This may be what urban America looked like before supermarkets and suburbs. The main thoroughfare - Front Street to where it angles off onto Kensington Avenue - is fully under the rumbling rail line.

It's one narrow, dingy shop after another, where marginal merchants start the day by unlocking rusty window mesh, dragging it screaming to the side. Then they roll bins of fruit, vegetables and cheap clothing, watches and electronics out to the shadowed sidewalk.

The row houses and small bungalows on side streets discharge few pedestrians and fewer customers. Business as usual.

This is where Sylvester Stallone and his crew came in late 1975 - an unlikely place for a young buck from the suburbs.

Powered by ambition to be a somebody, he knocked around the edge of the New York and Hollywood scenes, picking up money by knocking out screenplays that included characters he could play - street types whose diction stooped to his.

In early 1975, age 29, he saw long-shot heavyweight Chuck Wepner last 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali and got the idea for a picture about a bum of a boxer - "a man from the streets; a walking cliche of sorts," according to website http://www.sylvesterstallone.com.

All this character named Rocky Balboa has to do is get in shape, get into the ring and somehow beat this too-pompous champion of the world. A boxing Cinderella.

Stallone rejected offers to sell the quickly written work (he wanted to star in it himself) and eventually got a measly $US1 million ($A1.33 million) to make it with director John Avildsen.

The public went nuts over the cheaply-made Rocky, nominated for 10 Oscars and taking three.

Kensington was key part of that "nowhere": indoor shots were filmed on West Coast sets, but to save money, exteriors were done in Kensington.

Rocky's dumpy flat. The smelly gym where he plugs away. The nondescript two-storey building where Rocky's pal Paulie lived with mousy sister Adrian. The rundown pet store where Adrian sold "boids."

Other Philadelphia sites were seen onscreen, especially the steps of the Museum of Art that Rocky climbed as he got stronger.

For years, tourists have come to Kensington's mean streets because of Rocky.

This (northern) spring, Stallone and his megabudget crew were back, filming Rocky Balboa.

That's how little the streets here changed.

First stop on the "Rocky" tour is 2146 North Front Street, where Stallone paid Joe Marks $US700 ($A930) to borrow his pet shop for two days of shooting in 1975.

Sly didn't return to the shop for Rocky Balboa. The facade is heavily shuttered with rolldown metal plating. The glass door is fronted by a cell door secured with a pair of large locks; the store closed more than two years ago.

Kensington Avenue hits Front Street at an angle and carries the "el" northeast, to and beyond the Huntington and Somerset stops.

Between buildings, empty lots penned with cyclone fence and topped with concertina wire hold amazing things. In one is a sizable collection of old and gutted stoves. No sinks, no building materials; just stoves.

In Rocky, 2822 Rosehill Street in a row of duplexes, is where Adrian and Paulie lived. It appears to be vacant now.

At 2755-59 Kensington Avenue, look above one battered building to see a white plastic sheet printed with Rock Ministries. It is draped over a old yellow marquee where movable letters spell out FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT on one side ... but whose other side has been edited by a wag to read FIGHT THE GOOD.

It is an urban youth ministry where juveniles can get off the street after school for boxing lessons and religion.

"Rock Ministries" refers to Psalms 18:2 ("The Lord is my rock"), not Rocky Balboa. But the concept is gritty Americana: all boxers who attend 12 Thursday Bible Studies get a Rock Ministries T-shirt. ... 36 Bible Studies earns an equipment bag.

Around the block about 300m is the biggest "Rocky" site of all.

East Tusculum, a one-block side-street off Kensington, has facing rows of townhouses. The last one on the right, No 1818, is tidier than most - and much more famous.

"It's always looked like this because we keep it clean," says owner Eleanor O'Hey, who lives at 1806 and who rents 1818 to her brother and sister. They live in Rocky's house.

"They paid me $US50 ($A66.50) and were shooting there for four days that December. What was he like? Stallone? I didn't talk to him during the first movie. He was busy running around all the time doing this and doing that. Besides, I had no idea who he was."

O'Hey, 77, went on: "After the movie came out, things was completely different. People coming here all up and down the street. Someone tried to buy the storm door. That was stupid."

Stallone returned to Tusculum Street for Rocky II.

O'Hey: "The second time I got $US500 ($A665) because he had to have his picture taken here in a tux when Rocky was getting married." She has a framed photo of her and the tux-clad actor.

And in March?

"No raise. $US500 again. They were filming at night this time; it wasn't until 6am that they got done. Sly was busy - going back and forth, back and forth. But I shook hands with Paulie (actor Burt Young)."

Patricia Aird and her daughter Karen, who have lived across from the Rocky house for years, come outside to talk.

Two of Patricia's sons, Joey and Michael, aged eight and nine in 1975, were in one of the scenes; they were play-fighting. One now works at Temple University; the other is unemployed.

"Philadelphia is where the best fighters come out of," she says proudly.

Besides Rock Ministry, Kensington has Champ's gym at 22nd and Huntington, and the Front Street Gym at Frankford and Clearfield.

IF YOU GO:

Kensington is northeast of downtown Philadelphia. Get there on the eastbound Market-Frankford subway/el (info/schedules, http://www.septa.org).

Kensington stops include York-Daulphin, Huntington and Somerset.

The Greater Philadelphia Film Office offers a bus tour that visits more than 64 locations seen in various movies, including the "Rocky" series. Cost: $US35 ($A46.50). Details: call (from Australia 0011-1) 215-686-2668 or visit http://www.film.org

Though if anyone is to look good when they're 60 it would be Stallone. A 20 something year old boxer in his prime vs. a 60 year old legend, that definately sounds like something I need to see.

RE: Poe & Kubrick

I believe it's in the Vanity Fair article with Stallone on the cover wearing a blazer with no shirt. It promoted Rocky V primarily.

It begins with Sly playing a piano and sighing when he found out it was last played by Eddie Murphy.

i think rocky will lose the fight, and sorry, but i agree with the guy a few lines over me, who said, that the main plot wont be, that rocky will win the fight, but that he can proof to himself, that he is a true fighter... i think rocky will lose the fight, but win something else.... "where is that from, the 80ies?" " i think that problem are the 70ies" ... what does that mean? you think it's after the match and after rockies lose?

The Rocky story is an American treasure. It reminds us of what a champion is, for today!
It is an alternative to being a disruptive, bad member of society such as 2pac.
Long live ROCKY!
Death to 2pac!

The trailer was excellent!
An exciting twist and I saw some really good acting from Sly!!
The short scenes really touched the ideology of what "ROCKY" is all about!

Thank you Rocky and thank you Mr Stallone. Good luck and God bless,may it be a blockbuster with a good message to all.

What is Stallone thinking? He is meant to be a heavyweight. Why couldn't he have used Michael Clark Duncan. Now there is a Heavyweight!!

Stallone felicitaciones, no solo el mejor heroe de accion de todos los tiempos sino que ademas un verdadero artista tanto a la hora de actuar, dirigir e incluso crear la saga de Rocky, una saga que perdurara para siempre en los recuerdos de todos.
