Sylvester Stallone has released a new poster for the upcoming director’s cut of his hit 1985 movie Rocky IV and he also said that the movie will be released in theaters later this year on November 11th.
“Opening in theaters Nov.11 th! WIDE SCREEN AND 4 K … So proud of all the technicians that did a great job in bringing this film & battle back to life in an amazing way! Thank you. Poster by @john_rivoli”
The new cut of Rocky IV, which is officially titled Rocky vs. Drago – The Ultimate Director’s Cut, will also be released with the documentary Keep Punching: The Present Meets the Past. That doc will chronicle the making of the film.
One of the significant changes to the movie that Stallone previously shared was that he cut out Paulie’s robot, Sico. When asked whether this new version would “expand on the relationship between Paulie and his robot,” Stallone said, “The Robot is going to the junkyard forever. No more robot.” He went on to say, “I don’t like the robot anymore.”
