"Let's Get Ready to Rock!"

It's come down to this... Rocky Balboa [SYLVESTER STALLONE] steps out of his corner, ready to mix it up with Heavyweight Champion Mason Dixon [ANTONIO TARVER].
- Craig Zablo

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, here's Sly's response to another question sent in by STALLONEZONEr!


Craig: Do you still paint?

SYLVESTER STALLONE: I do. [LAUGHS] I, you know, the other day I, I usually paint characters or situations that are, you know, kind of emotional... bizarre. But lately I've been painting, dare I say it, flowers for the house. But they're bizarre flowers.

Dear Craig, my name is Aron Scott Asmussen, I am 17 years old and I live in Arizona. I have been a HUGE Stallone fan for almost a decade now, I absoloutely love him to death and these films mean THE WORLD to me. This blog is amazing as well as the Stallone Zone, thank you so much for putting so much of your own time in to do this. We all appriciate it more than you know. I have been commenting all afternoon on these photos. I'm not sure if you check these comments or not. But if you do I have a question for SLY, maybe you could please ask him for me? When is Rambo IV supposed to begin shooting? Again thank you so much Craig, I really appriciate the work you are doing. Truely, Aron Scott Asmussen

Having Tony and Burt Young in this movie makes it even more special. They are wonderful characters. I actually know Tony Burton's real life little brother. He is an aquaintence of a relative of mine and he actually sent me a picture of Sly, Tony, and Burt from the set of the film at the Mandalay Bay last Christmas when filming started!:) -Aron

it's an encore pic, but it still stands out well.....however, will there be a NEW TRAILER to this movie? i hope there'll be some great lead-in TV spots as well. Rock definitely needs the hype and they (the movie campaign crew) need to get it started.

Hey All my fellow ROCKY fans, just as a friendly reminder, on December 5th, a ALL-NEW 2 disc collector's edition DVE of the original ROCKY will be released with all new featurettes, a collectors' booklet, commentary by Sly, and A Sneak Peak at ROCKY BALBOA! I agree though, we should start seeing a lot of advertisements, commercials, trailers, etc. for this film VERY soon. December is right around the corner. I'm suprised that we haven't already seen anything! - Aron

I sincerely hope that this film gets an outstanding response at the box office this christmas. I know that ROCKY fans will absoloutely LOVE IT! I KNOW that Sly has saved the best for last, he knows how much this film means to the world. If this movie is somehow STRANGELY not marketed well enough, let's all do are best to show our support for this film. I hope to see it multiple times in the theater!

even if the movie isn't marketed well(which it won't be), the Rocky movies have stood the test of time and needs no introduction. Bring it on I say. Fire Makes Steel!

yo que vi la primera pelicula en 1978 cuando tenia 9 años y he podido ver todas las demas ademas de convertirme en fans de Sly y de Rocky por siempre, me a inspirado toda su vida y la obra de este actor y su personaje de ROCKY es por ello que a mis casi 38 años que cumplo por cierto en Diciembre antes del estreno que creo es pura casualidad, me mantengo sano, sin fumar, haciendo ejercicios y luchando por tener un empleo digno como profesional que soy y en el que me converti estudiando y en muchos casos en lo que la cosa se me ponia dificil recordaba estas peliculas y me hacian sentir mejor hoy en dia me mantengo fisicamente como un hombre de 30 años en perfecto estado de salud,hago ciclismo,natacion y ejercicios al aire libre tipo ROCKY eso lo hago desde muy joven y se que es por inspiracion de este hombre es por ello que le doy gracias por estos film y por esta nueva pelicula que me demuestra mas aun que la edad no importa, ni tampoco ninguna adversidad que se nos presente lo mas importante es saber que tenemos un ROCKY por dentro y que la ESPERANZAS es lo ultimo que se pierde, Dios quiera que mi familia en un futuro mis hijos sean parecido a la familia tan bella que mostro en sus peliculas.GRACIAS ROCKY SIEMPRE ME HAS INSPIRADO.

I think that Rocky losing the fight to Dixon would be a very artistic approach. Sly/Rocky will still ALWAYS be a winner and champion in the eyes and hearts of his millions of fans!

There should be more people out there like you:) I absoloutely CANNOT wait for Christmas:) - Aron Scott

There must be thousands of men who trained to the music and certainly received inspiration to push forward with their goals/dreams.

I say this is a great ending (regardless how it ends) to a great series.
