Sylvester Stallone is producing a director’s cut of his classic 1985 movie Rocky IV. I’m a huge fan of this movie, and it’s one of my favorites in the franchise. It was wonderful to see the fight between Rocky and Drago continue in Creed 2, but now we’ve got this new cut of Rocky IV to look forward to!
The new cut of Rocky IV, which is officially called Rocky vs. Drago – The Ultimate Director’s Cut, will also be released with the documentary Keep Punching: The Present Meets the Past.
One of the big differences 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.”
Stallone has now released a new poster for Rocky vs. Drago – The Ultimate Director’s Cut. Stallone previously talked about the movie, saying, “So far it looks great. Soulful.”
