The Last ROCKY Trailer Ever?? A New ROCKY BALBOA Trailer Is Now Online!!

Published at: Nov. 15, 2006, 9:05 p.m. CST

Merrick again...
Yahoo Movies just posted the final trailer for ROCKY BALBOA in glorious QuickTime. Which, presumably, makes this the last ROCKY trailer ever. Feels very strange to say that; bittersweet. This is pretty much the same material we saw in the last trailer, with new stuff shoehorned throughout. "Eye of the Tiger" riffs can be heard in the closing moments here, kitschy but still kind of cool. This trailer feels more scattershot & unfocused than its predecessor, which I'm not sure will serve the film well in the eyes of skeptical masses. Nonetheless, I'm really looking forward to seeing this when it opens 'round Christmas.
SEE IT!!!

Now...on to RAMBO!

    This film will shut up Sly bashers! Here comes old-school Stallone with ROCKY BALBOA and next RAMBO IV: IN THE SERPENTS EYE. Now if only Arnie and Cameron could make BATTLE ANGEL ALITA right now...read here for that news: http://www.thearnoldfans.com/news/1070.htm

    Wow this does look good.... im so pumped for this!!!

    by wolvenom

    This looks so good. I've seen every rocky ten times over and cant wait for this shit. Could this be the best rocky ever? The video game simulation crap bothers me a little but it seems like just a 10 second thing. It bothers me a bit they're basically redoing the last rocky but whatever this could be 10 times better.

    by GobBluth06

    I'm not a huge Stallone fan, but I must say this trailer actually makes me want to see this film. I haven't really liked what I have seen up until now. It might just be the nostalgic side of me that wants this to be good and forget about the last Rocky movie.

    Nice one! Many of us have become too cynical these days (me included), too quick to mock. Maybe we need a character like Rocky, an innocent, a good man we can root for, bollocks to cynicism, fuck being cool, Rocky's an old school hero and I welcome his return.

    SCREW EVERYBODY

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    I've read this script, i didn't like it, I don't care...I can't wait for this and I hope it rocks! People think I ridiculous for getting excited about this flick but I try and explain, ROCKY BALBOA represents hope. When we were kids we loved the Rocky films, even if they got cheesy after 1 but we all agreed that Rocky 5 was terrible (Rocky streetfighting out of the ring WTF?) and you never want something tht was so tied to your youth to go out on such a bad note. For 15 years we thought Rocky would always have gone out on a really crappy note but now that might not be the case. go Rock!

    Bringing Rocky back...

    by SK909

    I have to say, I really like the way that this is shot. Movies don't even look like movies anymore. It seems like Stallone managed to get that 70's look. People think it's the film stocks, and, to a certain extent it is, but it really is the fact that everything is overlit or underlit and directors don't know how to frame shots anymore. Things aren't allowed to move within a nice frame. I also hate that saturated black look that permeates a lot of films today as well. Anyway, I can't wait to see this. It just looks positive, character driven, and beautifully shot. Sure there are cheesy bits, but it's the kind of cheese I can get behind. The kind you want ladled onto your Phily cheese steak. Now THAT was cheesy. Go Rock!

    DYING TO SEE THIS!!!

    by HEADGEEK

    The other night on SPIKE TV - they did a Balboathon of the 4 existing ROCKY movies. I joined it in progress at about the 30 minute mark of ROCKY II - now somehow - the reception on SPIKE looks like old terrible through the air reception... with rolling bars and shit in the screen... intermittant blackouts and I watched cuz the fucker captured me.<BR><BR>Before ROCKY III could start I had gotten my DVDs out so I could watch without commercial breaks and I fucking love the 4 ROCKY movies and this 5th one looks to kick ass. CAN'T WAIT!

  • Nov. 15, 2006, 10:59 p.m. CST

    Re: Racismo

    by Kevin

    I wonder if that is what Stallone thought about when he started to write the newest installment of the Rocky series? How can I keep the black man down? How many times can I take down yet another black opponent? For crying out loud, it is a movie and only a movie, Thunderballs. I didn't realize the Rocky franchise was a social commentary on racism. You know what I find amusing about your comment, the fact that you complain about having to root, YET AGAIN, for Rocky to kick the shit out of the latest black guy. So you admit that you rooted for that the first few films when he "kicked" the shit out of the black guys back then? Complaining in a forum advertising the trailer, ignorant just like your racist accusations against Stallone and Hollywood's portrayal of black people in cinema. Get a clue.

  • Nov. 15, 2006, 11:32 p.m. CST

    Thunderballs...

    by wirefufighter

    While I can see where you're coming from with there being 3 black antagonists vs. 2 white ones (I'd only count Creed as one villain), I don't really think that Rocky's exactly racist. I think one of the best things about the 1st 2 movies was that IMO Apollo was never really portrayed as a "bad" person. Sure he essentially did the whole fight as a PR deal and not out of pure charity, but he did give Rocky his shot, and a fair one at that. I always finish that movie rooting that Rocky wins the championship, the respect, as opposed to you just wanting to see him beat the shit out of the latest devil boxer incarnate. Lang was certainly in that evil boxer category, I'll certainly give you that, but Drago, despite his ham fisted "victim of the soviet boxing machine" allegories, was just as evil, and white. As for Gunn, well the less said about him the better, but nonetheless you wanted Rocky to beat his ass. As for this latest dude, I'll have to wait and see. The trailers make him out to be an asshole, but it could just be the whole boxing showmanship deal. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this story isn't about black vs. white, it's about Rocky, the underdog. Sure he's white, but you can't really blame Stallone for that. Also, note the positive race relations as seen in Rocky 3's beachside lovey-dovying between Apollo and Rocky. ; )

    by Mister Sean

    I saw a screening of this and did a review a ways back...and since then I've rewatched the 5 originals...and I have to say that this one is my second favorite (after the first one, of course). Rocky Balboa is really good and the trailer has me pumped to see it again, opening day. I can't wait to read Harry''s review on this one...I don't always agree with him, but when I do, he manages to capture everything I love about the movie and there's a lot to love here.

    Rocky vs Black Boxer

    by antonphd

    It's racist to think that it would be racist to have Rocky fight a black boxer, asshole. You see two athletes and one is black and so it must only be due to wanting to beat down black people that Rocky would be fighting a black boxer. What the fuck is wrong with you? Do you watch boxing?

  • Nov. 16, 2006, 1:31 a.m. CST

    Meh!

    by lionbiu

    I am sorry, but I just don't see what the rest of you guys are seeing....it looks average to me..nothing much interesting or new here. Also, about the whole black boxer stuff....well alot of the best champions have been black so if anything having him fight a black boxer is just being realistic and Rocky does not win (which again is keeping it realistic because he is not a heavy weight at all!)

    The ending...

    by Wheel99

    Wouldnt it be great if the movie ended the way that the first one did and the franchise comes full circle. Rocky who everyone knows has no chance to win the the fight takes the champ the distance, shocks the world and tells his son that he loves him.

  • Nov. 16, 2006, 2:29 a.m. CST

    There were 4 endings shot for this movie...

    by Babba-Booey

    Search for Rocky on AICN and see the article that was submitted back in December of 2005. If he dies at the end, then its after the conclusion of of the fight and away from the ring.

    by NachoNegro

    I'm very optimistic about this - I really think this could be a great Coda for the character. I can do without a rap remake of 'Eye Of The Tiger' - why do it? What's the point? But everything else looks fine. I don't see any need for him to die in the ring - let him live a happy retirement. Just give Carl Weathers a ghost flashback scene and I'll be happy. As for the guy who says Rocky is racist, seriously dude go and buy a clue.

    Not so much. I read some of the script and it didn't seem so great. Has a bit of Blade 3 about it. But I hear they want to keep that franchise going beyond the 4th movie, so maybe it's just impossible for it to have the same Gravitasssss as the Final Rocky.

    by Acappellaman

    I'll be there in the center seat of the theater opening night. Rocky is my all-time favorite movie character EVER. Watching Rocky movies just makes you feel good, despite the weaknesses in them as films. Who cares? They're just fun! Screw the Playstation 3 - we should all be getting in line to watch Rocky Balboa now! Woo hoo! <p> Oh, and this crap about racism - it's groundless. I mean, come on. Rocky has black trainers for crying out loud. I don't know the numbers, but there are so many black fighters out there than white, the odds are that he would face a black fighter. That's just the way the boxing world is! Besides, I don't really think Mason Dixon is being painted as an evil person - just cocky. From what I've heard, he and Rocky end up having nothing but respect for each other, not hate. <p> Just over one month away before we can all celebrate with Rocky. My guess is that Rocky loses the fight, but goes the distance, just like in the first film, thus compleeting the circle. They filmed enough endings so that none of us really knows how it's going to turn out, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Italians start thinking they're heavyweight fighters after seeing a Rocky movie? Kind of like how black kids think they're hardcore gangsters after listening to the new Dipset track? Fuck outta here with that hypocritical racist bullshit. Turning this shit into a race debate just showcases your insecurity. As far as that guy who wrote that long story on some stand-up comedian/social commentary bullshit it was totally unfunny, poorly written and it smacks of someone who caught way too many feelings. I've seen white kids knocked out by black kids and black kids knocked out by white kids. Race doesn't have shit to do with it. Man up people.

    Racism

    by NachoNegro

    Interesting how it's not at all racist to stereotype Italian Americans. Anyone who thinks there's a streak of White supremacy in these films has got a serious problem mentally. I'm talking internal conflicts, people. You're talking about Rocky here. His best friend was black. His trainer is black. What are they, Uncle Toms? Don't be an asshat. Any racism you read into these films is there in you to start off with - you're bring it in to the f%%king film to begin with.

  • Nov. 16, 2006, 1:31 p.m. CST

    I really have hope for this

    by amrisharmpit

    The whole idea of Rocky is that it's a parallel for Stallone's career. Rocky started off as an unknown and rose to superstardom, only to fall from the heights of success. Who does that sound like? So when you think about it, the larger issue is whether Stallone can make a comeback in Hollywood. Perhaps that will depend on how well this movie does.

  • Nov. 16, 2006, 1:36 p.m. CST

    First off, Stallone was GARBAGE in Rocky

    by Ricky Henderson

    He made it feel like a tv film. Stallone's Rocky is less a performance than an impersonation. It's all crappy superficial mannerisms and movements, reminding me of Rodney Dangerfield doing a nightclub monologue. The speech patterns sound right and what he says is occasionally lifelike, but it's a studied routine, not a character. The reason the film doesn't work is because of Stallone. Throughout the movie we are asked to believe that his Rocky is compassionate, interesting, even heroic, though the character we see is simply a lousy unconvincing actor imitating a lug. Sorry, its not enough for me not to watch this awful movie--I need to tell other people why they shouldn't watch it either.

    How about Ralph Macchio as an over the hill middle aged Karate Kid. Travolta as a "finally out of the closet" Tony Manero running a dance studio out of his old Brooklyn neighborhood.

    Or remember in Rocky IV

    by Ricky Henderson

    When Stallone becomes an international diplomat, beats Drago, and single-handedly ends Communism and brings down the Berlin Wall? Yeah that wasn't silly or anything. You Rocky fans make me giggle.

    I'm surprised so many people misunderstand Rocky IV

    by chrth

    What the movie is showing is three distinct attitudes, and it's offering a criticism on two of them.<p> The first is the Jingoistic Flashy American attitude exemplified by Apollo Creed (and James Brown). This attitude is style over substance, cockiness instead of confidence, and the inability to take an opponent--one who may be your equal--seriously. The fact that Apollo dies indicates the belief that this sort of attitude is wrong, and may be fatal to the practitioner. In others, it's a slap in the face of America Fuck Yeah! attitudes (you listening, Toby Keith?).<p> The second attitude is that displayed by Drago. This is a belief in science and technology that can build a better machine that will overcome all obstacles. It is unemotional, immovable, but ultimately can not match up with the third attitude.<p> This third attitude is of industriousness and dedication, humility and ingenuity. It's equated with the land in Rocky's use of farm implements to train. The fact that he does this training in the Soviet Union demonstrates that such a mindset is possible for both nations (Rocky representing the US) and also ties into the original ideas of the strengths of the working class. If he can change (from the first attitude) and you can change (from the attitude) then everyone can change (to the third attitude).<p> That is what Rocky IV is all about.

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    I have to say that's a fair and well stated assessment. Based upon those types of factors, I think it's safe to then say that the attitude of "Rocky Balboa" will be that an old, down-n-out boxer can still knock yo' ass the fuck out!

    Rachel Ray's weight

    Has always fluctuated. It's probably because she has a lot going on and can't work out as much.

    MNG: Rocky Balboa will be symbolic

    by chrth

    Of the strength of the Baby Boomer generation in a world that appears to revolve around Gens X & Y. His relationship with his son demonstrates that there are incompatibilities involved, but these can be overcome and both sides of the gaps should try to close it.

    I can not wait to see this film. I saw the preview before The Departed and the whole theater was buzzing about it. I heard more then one guy tell his girlfriend that he would be going. In fact, after I just watched this newest trailer, I was so excited, I KO'ed my parents!

    by mrbong

    www.aintitpoliticallycorrect.com - what the fuck is with all these "racist" posts all of a sudden? Rocky was racist because the Heavyweight Champ of the World, Apollo Creed, was black? the vast majority of HW WC's have been black, as indeed have the majority of the greatest boxers, irrespective of weight. had they made Apollo a white guy, that would have been racist and drained any sense of realism from the original film. what next? Star Wars racist as Lando didn't get the easy kind of shot on the Death Star which was afforded to Luke?? why don't you people who want to read racism into every film just fuck off and hunt down Mel Gibson or something.
