"Rocky Balboa" - Own it now on DVD, PSP™ & Blu-ray™

October 20, 2006

And In This Corner...

Rocky Balboa (SYLVESTER STALLONE), looking fit and cut, steps out of retirement and back into the ring to face a younger and more skilled rival in a dramatically different era. The final round of the Academy Award®-winning Rocky franchise hits theatres Friday, December 22, 2006. Written and directed by SYLVESTER STALLONE.

As an added bonus for SYLVESTER STALLONE / ROCKY fans, for the next few weeks we're going to run Sly's responses to questions sent in by STALLONEZONErs from around the world!

Craig: You've returned to Rocky and soon will start work on your next Rambo film. Are there other characters that you'd like to revisit?

SYLVESTER STALLONE: [LAUGHS ] Well, you know, there's some things that I, I, I felt as though maybe I didn't pay [enough] attention [to]. I thought Judge Dredd would have been fantastic, great character just didn't work. Cobra was also an interesting character, yet could have been fleshed out. I thought Tango and Cash could have hung around for another version. So yeah there, there are always those. There's about three or four characters I thought still could have hung around for a sequel.

Craig, I have a quick question for you. These pics are awesome and I am totally addicted to this blog, and I can see how the pics are leading up to the fight. Are any of the upcoming pictures going to give anything away about the end of the movie? I would just like some notice beforehand if so, because I really want to experience the story in the theater. Thanks, man, and keep up the excellent work!!

Man, I would Love to see another Dredd film. I'm a big fan of the first one. (I know I'm probably the only one.)And I know it wouldn't make much sense to make a Copland sequel, but it would be nice to see how Freddie's doin' these days. Copland is hands down one of Sly's best movies ever.

I remember having Rocky posters on my wall as a child. I can remember seeing Rocky II in the theatres in 79 (I was 5 at the time). Ever since then I couldn't wait until the next one. Now I'm back in the place, with that childhood excitement much like the last day of school.

I will be there on opening day cheering outloud as I hope the entire room is doing.

Another cool thing they could do with his wife is instead of her being dead is her getting involved with drugs and her turning into a porn chick, doing lots of anal videos and being tarvers hoe

Man, he looks like he could do a sequel to Cliffhanger! Awesome shape.

Looks like he can do whatever he wants, just like Clint Eastwood. Take his time, enjoy the ride (or the training!) and create some classics.

Rocky Balboa looks like a classic to me!

WELL, DO SLY COBRA II!
You can always do Cobra 2. Cobra is one of best films from 80's! Is true that you actually have "Cobra 2" script in late of 80's?
My idea: Cobra II: Time To Kill.

Brain damage?
I mean in Rocky 5 it was said that he could never box again cause it would kill him? The brain damage just grew away?

Re: the "brain damage" post

Don't even try to bring up inconsistancies in the Rocky movies on this web-site. The legion of blind-to-anything-that-wreaks-of-inconstancy-fans will chew you up and spit you out with a dazzling display of illogic.

As for me, I agree. Whatever happened to his brain damage? And the fight at the end of Rocky V most likely only added to that damage. What gives?

October 23, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Have you SEEN Rocky Balboa yet? Then shut up. I am more than confident that your questions will be answered. To be complaining that things do not make sense before you have even seen the film is what is illogical. If you are going to gripe that the story is inconsistent, then you apparently have not watched the movies back-to-back and you do not understand the true meaning of the story.

re brain damage
i think if i remember the brain damage that rocky got from drago was inoperable so its quite possible that time has healed it so that he can fight again a bit like swelling around the brain.

thank you sly for doing this picture i have been a boxer for ten years and am 36 years old still trying to push myself you were and still are my inspiration!

Sly from the first Rocky film I was inspired. Like many others back then I waited for the next sequels. All of them inspired. Admittedly the last one was my least favorite. But with the upcoming Rocky Balboa movie it looks as though you have fittingly made Rocky come full circle. Im anxiously awaiting its release. Im a lot older now but continue to stay fit and active. Im not ashamed to say that Rocky was the inspiration. Thanks for being Rocky. Keep punching!

Let me be one of the first to say That rocky is tougher than Brain Dammage, his wife is dead so who cares anymore, she was everything to him, but.....She's the only reason he wouldn't fight. There was only a possiblity that it could be fatal. Also, he better not die, becasue I think in Rocky 7 he's should fight his "too cocky" Son keep em comming I'll be there first night, best movies ever.

Rocky Balboa is one of the most inspiring and influential characters of our time. I'm a huge fan of all the Rocky movies. However, I'd be lying if I said I agreed with the coming out of this movie. Classics need to remain classics. In my own opinion, Rocky I,II,III and IV made a massive imprint on the entertainment world. The 5th, and now 6th movies may be pushing it. But, I wish the best to Mr. Stallone, I know you'll have a lot of loyal Rocky fans back for this "final round".
