First off, this one looks to be titled "Rocky Balboa" rather than Rocky VI.
Looks like Sylvester hit the gym pretty hard. For a guy in his 50s (56 to be exact) he looks solid. Rambo movie in the offing perhaps?
In the new installment, Rocky, lonely and retired in Philadelphia, comes out of retirement, intending to fight a few low-profile local fights. He’s approached to fight a match with reigning heavyweight champ Mason “The Line” Dixon, and soon his comeback ignites a media firestorm.
I'll just ignore the Mason Dixon reference + black guy = racial oopsie thing and say that against my better judgement I'm loooking forward to this movie. Antonio Tarver is one mean son of a bitch, and he hits like he's got a brick in his gloves. Need the proof?
For those who didn't see this fight, he hit Roy Jones Jr. like an anvil and sent his keister to the canvas half way into the second round. Prior to this asswhippin, Roy was in talks to play Mason Dixon. Funny how life kicks you to the curb sometimes.
A few nuggets about the film:
Former THE A TEAM star MR T is set to reprise his role of CLUBBER LANG in the upcoming ROCKY VI film.
The 1980s icon played ROCKY BALBOA's tough, non-nonsense opponent in ROCKY III and he'll reteam with SYLVESTER STALLONE in the latest instalment of the boxing film franchise.
Everyone's favorite drunk...
Burt Young is expected to return as Adrian's brother, Paulie.
Feb 2007 is the target date.
