The Italian Stallion is back as Sylvester Stallone releases the trailer of his cut of Rocky IV.

Throughout lockdown Sly has been hard at work in the editing room to bring us a different version of this much-loved sequel. One of the most explosive yet devastating debuts of a character, Dolph Lundgren as the iconic Ivan Drago takes on Carl Weathers charismatic Apollo Creed.

We all know how that goes and from the trailer we have never seen before footage as well as flashbacks. A rumoured change in this cut is the removal of the robot, “Sico”, gifted to Paulie (Burt Young) for his birthday.

This Sly cut of Rocky IV is also set for a US cinema release on November 11th for one-night only via Fathom events.

We are beyond excited for this and with any luck there will be a UK cinema release. You can watch the trailer and new poster here:
