I never thought we’d get excited for a new trailer for a film that was released well over thirty years ago but here we are as Sylvester Stallone and MGM have unleashed an official trailer for Sly’s Rocky IV: Rocky Vs. Drago Ultimate Director’s Cut. The newly restored and recut fourth film in the Rocky saga comes loaded with new scenes and more for a one night only event so get ready for World War III once again!
Stallone has added over 40 minutes of additional scenes for the special edition which sources say changes the over all tine of the film. The original cut was the shortest of the series and was maligned among critics although it introduced the world to the dominating Dolph Lundgren. It’s still a classic in my eyes and many others but this cut looks to make it even better.
The Ultimate Director’s Cut will have a special one night only premiere as part of Fathom Events on November 11th and will include a special intro and Q&A from Stallone himself. For ticket info, visit the office Fathom Films site for more!
Stallone’s final match with Lundgren was voted the greatest fight in cinematic history and I must concur that it’s one of my top beatdowns so here’s hoping they left that alone.
After the one night premiere, the film will be available on Digital and VOD the next day on November 12th but if you’re a true fan like me then you have to see this on the big screen for sure. “I must break you!”
