4 all german fans:
Wie uns '20th Century Fox' nun allerdings mitgeteilt haben, hat sich die Wartezeit verkürzt. Anfangs wurde ja schon spekuliert, dass der Film bereits im Februar nächsten Jahres in Deutschland erscheint, nun ist es offiziell: Rocky Balboa wird am dem 08. Februar 2007 hierzulande in den Kinos zu sehen sein. Wir müssen uns also 2 Monate weniger gedulden, eine gute Nachricht für alle Rocky-Fans.

Rocky Balboa movie buzz
http://bterzian.tripod.com

Rocky Balboa movie buzz
copyright Brenda Terzian

For those who wonder 'bout the buzz'
Magic's revived from what was
A hot new movie's soon to be
I'm talking 'bout the sixth Rocky

The net's got the trailer preview
Has had web hits from most of you
Because Stallone's a special man
He has got many fans

For ones who don't know history
This saga's quite a victory
An underdog started it all
When the bell rang, he didn't fall

First there came Rocky one
Apollo regret what he'd done
When he gave Rocky a chance
A real champ took his stance

It all continued, Rocky two
Balboa knew what to do
This very special somebody
Had inspired everybody

Then there was Rocky three
Mister T was mighty
We've a champ the viewers sang
But it wasn't Clubber Lang

Sadness came in Rocky four
Apollo died on the floor
Drago caused his last strife
Rocky fought for his life

Next was then Rocky five
A newcomer had arrived
Rocky trained him for his day
But the end was betrayed

Now long awaited Rocky six
A Mason Dixon - Rocky mix
Though Rocky's been retired
Once again he's inspired

Not just for a boxing season
Inner strength is the reason
The fighting gloves already on
Sly's guts pushes in the dawn

'Rocky Balboa', go for it
Conflict punches, Stallone hits
Human spirit triumphs all
In obstacles, doesn't fall

A great film we know and trust
A little Rocky's in all of us
Motivation the movie gives
Sly's Rocky story lives

And just in case you didn't know
There's also coming a new Rambo
But that's another movie time
And coming soon in my next rhyme

I remember the year was 1982 and I was 10 years old. My mom and her friend wanted to go see a movie and they took me and a friend of mine. As we walked into the movie theater I saw the poster for Rocky III. I thought to myself, "I have NO desire to see some boxing movie!" I was dreading it more than I can tell.

Yet, I can tell you that from the moment that movie began, I was hooked and have been ever since.

Not only is Sylvester Stallone the most beautiful man ever put on creation, he is brilliant.

Now I can tell you that I am looking forward to December 22, 2006 more than I can tell!

Thanks, Sly! You're amazing!

Go Rocky!

I'm glad to see the movement has started, if know one minds, I'd like to put my 2 pence worth in...
I myself am in the UK and also unhappy that we have to wait until February for it's release. Our brothers and sisters in Germany have got to wait until APRIL (according to IMDB.com)!!!! I dont want to be hearing who wins and all the other ins and outs of the story, then have to wait 2 whole months before seeing it! And I aint spoiling the experience by having some rip-off copy.

Craig, maybe you can help with you're web/blog design skills (and your contacts). Can we start an online petition to get Rocky Blaboa the same release date worldwide and then send it to the heads of MGM? The character of Rocky as we all know is a true underdog and by very definition the same is true of Rocky Blaboa (the movie). Maybe the good people at MGM aren't even expecting much - but I think they will be surprised. There are obviously lots of die-hard fans who will see the film (several times), but I've come across a lot of people who's first responce was to diss the thought of a new Rocky film (because it's the easy option) - that said, they will be the people who go to see it out of curiousity.
Lets get Rocky the same worldwide release date, December 22 2006. What a great Christmas present for the world!

Help us Craig, you maybe our only hope...

Win, Rocky, win.

Yes. I agree. Rocky is a worldwide hero. It should be released simultaneously, worldwide.

Just met Sly after the Rocky statue dedication in Philadelphia. He was gracious and stopped to sign a boxing glove for me even though the police were trying to whisk him away. He sais' "Walk with me," and he signed the glove for me and thanked me for coming. I later crashed his after party where he was releasing his new Sly Glacier Water at the Waterworks in Philadelphia. It was an experience I won't soon forget. Got my picture with Stallone and next to a lifesize Rocky Statue ice sculpture (also a bottle of Sly water!)

Whether you're from US, Canada, Europe or elsewhere please support Sly and Rocky by signing the following which will be sent to Sony/MGM to ensure the film is released WORLDWIDE on December 22nd - rather than the strange spread out schedule that would lead to piracy and will make the box-office gross plummet:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/749234240

We have talked to Sony and they have said that they will take the idea into account if the numbers were significant enough.

Everyone please sign this and reply so that as many people read this post and sign the petition by it remaining at the top of the boards.

It's not a sample film. This is a message of hope and happiness in the entire world.

My brothers, Dad and I used to watch the Rocky movies together. Now I have a 7 year old, and I have introduced him to ROCKY, as we have the series on DVD. We are all really excited that there is a final ROCKY.
We will be there opening night!
The Rocky movies inspire you, and make you believe that you can accomplish your goals if you work hard enough.
