creed ii images

The first official Creed II images are here, and they deliver a one-two punch of hype for this highly-anticipated sequel. Where Ryan Coogler’s 2015 Creed saw Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) wrestling with his father’s legacy as one of the greatest boxing champions of all time, Creed II sees him reckoning with the opponent who took his father’s life.

The new Creed II images show Adonis and Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) preparing for this fight of a lifetime against Ivan Drago’s (Dolph Lundgren) son, Viktor (Florian Munteanu). And yes, of course the iconic American flag trunks are back.

demolition man sequel

Add this to the “What Could Have Been” file: at one point, producer Joel Silver came up with a great idea for a Demolition Man sequel. This proposed sequel would find Sylvester Stallone‘s cop from the past trapped in the future reuniting with his daughter – who is now older than he is. And that’s not all. Silver wanted none other than Meryl Streep to play Stallone’s long-lost offspring.

JC Richard Rocky Print

Last week we got a peek at the next installment in the Rocky franchise in the form of the trailer for the sequel spin-off Creed II. Sylvester Stallone is back as Rocky Balboa, but he’s still outside of the ring, mentoring Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of the late Apollo Creed. But let’s not forget what brought us here, starting all the way back in 1976.

Rocky is the Best Picture winning sports drama that helped defined what made a movie like this great. Artist JC Richard has created a magnificent print paying tribute to Rocky showing the iconic Philadelphia boxer out on one of his training runs. The wide shot of the docks makes for a beautiful background as Rocky runs towards victory. Read More »

escape plan 2 trailer

The sequel you’ve all been waiting for with bated breath is coming. The Escape Plan 2 trailer brings back the things that everyone loved about the first film: Sylvester Stallone, breaking out of insane dystopian-style prisons, and…muscle-y men? Stallone’s last screen buddy Arnold Schwarzenegger is nowhere to be seen, but at least there’s Dave Bautista, stepping up from his frequent appearances as a scene-stealing supporting character. And this time, they’re in China!

Rambo 5 - Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone may be 71 years old, but that’s not going to stop him from taking on some new enemies in yet another sequel in the Rambo action franchise.

Rambo 5 is currently being shopped around by Avi Lerner and his Millennium Films banner at the Cannes Film Market. And rather than passing the torch as Stallone did in the   spin-off Creed, it looks like Sylvester Stallone will take the lead again as the Vietnam veteran who can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble.

Original Rocky Movie Poster

Rocky is not just one of the greatest sports movies of all time, but one of the greatest films ever made. Period.

But if there’s one thing about the Rocky that wasn’t all that great, it was the original poster. Even though it features the great tagline “His whole life was a million-to-one shot,” the black and white poster only featured Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and Adrian (Talia Shire) walking with their backs to us. Or there’s also the black and white one sheet featuring Rocky with his arms raised at the top of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is an iconic image, but it’s not exactly a great poster.

However, before those became the official Rocky posters, there was an awesome illustrated poster created by artist Tom Jung, and Sylvester Stallone has just revealed it to the public for the first time. Check out the original Rocky movie poster below. Read More »

Creed 2 Casting - Florian Munteanu

Back in November last year, we heard that Creed 2 might be looking for someone to play the son of Ivan Drago, the legendary boxer responsible for killing Apollo Creed in the ring at the beginning of Rocky IV in 1985. At the time, an MMA fighter named  Sage Northcutt said that he sent in a tape as an audition for the role, but there had been no real confirmation that the spin-off sequel starring Michael B. Jordan would bring in the offspring of another legacy character. Now not only do we have confirmation of the character’s involvement in the sequel, but we know who’s playing him as well, and it’s not the aforementioned MMA fighter.

Get the details on the Creed 2 casting of Ivan Drago’s son below. Read More »
