Stallone is also the director for both of them:

The dude is sixty already. He'll be 62 in 2008. To give him one thing, Schwarzenegger at least knew when it was time to move on.

How is is possible that you spend so much time on teh internets and yet *didn't* know about this?

Wait'll you hear about Snakes on a Plane!

Not only that, he's doing a biopic of Edgar Allan Poe:

At least he doesn't star in that one.

Because ILX is the place I spend most of my time in the Internet, and no one has started a thread on this yet.

Actually, the Poe film might just be good. I don't think he's necessarily a bad director.

Tuomas (Tuomas), Monday, 18 December 2006 14:20 (fifteen years ago) link

"Mike Tyson as Himself" - didn't know he was in it.

Pete Petrelli from Heroes plays Rocky Jr!

I'm a sucker for the Rocky films (apart from Rocky V, which doesn't exist) so I'm going to go along and see its conclusion. I'm guessing Rocky dies :(

larger amounts of consumer debt and price inflation outpacing wages has forced the American worker to continue full-time employment later in life in order to afford retirement, if they can retire at all. I'm sure Mr. Stallone is no different.

Cliff Barnes from Dallas is "attached" to Rambo IV! You can keep yer Tysons.

Sly Stallone needs to stop watching so much ppv porn, then he wouldn't have to do these movies.

Jesus Dan (dan perry), Monday, 18 December 2006 18:59 (fifteen years ago) link

I think he's been threatening to make that Poe film since Rocky III.

In a perfect world, Rambo IV would be a courtroom drama about VA benefits.

Fuck a bunch of "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot."

I have watched (fragments of) "Rhinestone" and (all of, lord help me) "Oscar."

Adrian has died (offscreen). How can you kill a different character in 6 movies and leave Burt Young standing?

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 14:49 (fifteen years ago) link

He's got moxie!

David RER (Frank Fiore), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 14:52 (fifteen years ago) link

I noticed there was no Adrian in the trailer, I'm kind of glad as she annoyed the fuck out of me by trying to get Rocky to stop fighting 196 times in every fucking movie except the first one - they should have killed her off in Rocky II when she was in the post giving birth to hairy baby coma.

I hear there is a dream sequence involving Apollo Creed and Mr. T

Rocky's hairy baby has growed up nice (no, I don't watch that "Heroes" show he's on):

Dr M, you're not wrong.

It's the hat.

The Many Faces of Gordon Jump (Leon), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 15:21 (fifteen years ago) link

I honestly didn't realize Burt Young was still alive in general.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 20 December 2006 15:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Looks a bit like the late Shirley Winters.

HA. i wouldn't even touch this with yours if Burt Young wasn't going to be in it

this movie is godawful. i think i may have written the only bad review!

A lot of the pans are like the Voice's, ie It's risible yet so comfortably familiar I can't hate it.
