It's Dixon...

Mason Dixon [ANTONIO TARVER] takes it to Rocky Balboa [SYLVESTER STALLONE] when the two meet in the center of the ring with neither willing to give an inch.
- Craig Zablo

It's 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 STALLONEZONErs!

Craig Zablo: Is writing an autobiography in your plans?

SYLVESTER STALLONE: [LAUGHS] No, 'cause I can't tell the truth. I have to wait until like hundreds of people are dead and it's gonna take forever. I don't want to embarrass anyone. If they wait until I'm dead, is it possible to write an autobiography from the grave? Now there's a trick.

Yea I saw the screening in NY, the ending is good and very believable...In a good fight with alot of action and Rocky is ahead on the score cards going into the final round when in dramatic fashion mason Dixon Knocks Balboa down and nearly out. Sorta like when apollo knocked balboa down in the 14th round in rocky I. Rocky then loses a split decision. The high note? well the very last scene where Rocky Tells asdrian Yo adrian, we did it, as he visits her tombstone..

I heard that Mason fights Rocky, then in the middle of the fight, Don Knotts jumps in out of the grave and calls Andy Griffith to have them break it up. Only Brittany Spears answers the phone and calls Bruce Willis to help out. Brude Willis says on the phone "Die Hardest!" and the big question is "who dies?" Rocky, Brittany Spears, Mason Dixon, or Brittany's sister, Brocolli Spears.

Anyway, I can't wait to see this movie. This movie looks just great. Awesome pictures, Craig. Thank you.

Based on the pictures I've seen, Rocky seems to have taken on Rocky Marciano's aggressive style.

Hi my name is Dave. I've been doing alot of research on this movie, because i am so excited for it's release. ROCKY ROCKS. I noticed people complaining about people predicting the movie and such.....but they predicted it right. Rocky loses his match against Dixon...however, he went the distance and over cam many obstacles...there have been many screenings i guess for this movie, I just signed up to go see one, that's if they have a screening in MA....but anyways who cares if Rocky lost....he's a true american icon. A man who inspired many, Thank You SLY.

Theres a Rocky marathon, its half way through the 2nd movie now. There haven't been any commercials for the new movie yet during the marathon. Its like they don't know the new movie is coming out. We need commericals so we know that they aren't pulling our leg about there being a new movie...and crush our dreams.

Yeah, I know I thought for sure they would be having interviews from Sly, Burt, Talia and Milo...everyone. But nothing, does the media not care? I hope there is something in December at least. We need to see that its real, on tv and everyone knows about it. This is a big deal, its the last one after 5 others. But we seem to be the only ones that care. :( :( :(

I am a hip hop artist and I have two songs in the upcoming Rocky Balboa film. I have seen a good portion of the film and it is actually a pretty good movie. You can check out snippets of my tracks in the movie at www.myspace.com/djon41, they are the last two songs on the page, RAW and Get Up feat. Frank Stallone. And look out for my new album next month!

Sly,

Many people will say "The Rocky Saga" is getting long winded, but I definitely have to disagree. My family and I have enjoyed every film. I do have a question. How much do you see yourself in the Rocky Balboa character? Boxing vs. Acting for instance.

Rocky Balboa is truly immortal. I was worried after watching Rocky IV after Apollo died Rocky wanted to fight the Russian I seriously thought it was suicide but watching that war I saw my hero knock him out after thinking that Drago was going to kill Rocky well that I think that will probably be the best fight he ever has sorry I lost faith Sly. Now Sly is making a sixth one which is kinda well AWESOME!!! I have been waiting for Sly to make a sixth one I will see the sixth movie and love every bit of it. Sly you da man no matter how old you get you'll always be AWESOME!!! and I'll be watching that movie knowing you'll kick that mason dick or whatever his name's ass. Sly you rule you'll always rule. Just one question Where's Adrian cause I mean honostly without her dude you'd still be all depressed about Mickey and his death Oh No you didn't kill Adrian off did ya. oh well at least you still got Paulie. I just want ya to know that I'll always be in your corner I'll alway's fight with ya and I'll always watch your back Sly since Adrians gone you've got your 100% support right here peace out Sly. walters,Mitchell from Clarinda,Iowa.

Man, another Rocky movie that's awesome. Just one question?? Why didn't you bring in Mr. T for the movie. I mean he was one of the toughest fighters ever. Apollo's dead, the Russian got smashed, but Clubber Lang beat Rocko. Mr. T has that new show now. You should have put him in the movie maybe as the trainer for Mason or something. That would have been cool
