With the news breaking of a 'Rocky' spin-off movie with Apollo Creed's grandson being announced. I had to make a poster for it.
Sylvester Stallone has signed on for it. The acting-directing team of the new acclaimed film,"Fruitvale Station" is behind it, so I'm pretty optimistic. Although, my poster is not gritty at all.
For an '80s kid, seeing the two names in the above banner would've made his head explode!
Stallone brought Schwarzenegger along for a few scenes in the Expendables movies, but here, they are full fledged partners working together and even having a fight! This is something that's been in the making for about 30 years!
The trailer itself left a little to be desired. It wasn't as balls-to-the-wall as I was hoping and the "pay off" action part of the trailer was a little tame. Maybe they're saving the good stuff for the movie. Maybe it's actually more of a thriller than an action movie. That would make more sense since these guys aren't in peak physical condition anymore. But this looks to be interesting that Stallone nor Schwarzenegger aren't playing the usual hero archetypes that they're famous for. Here's hoping the banter doesn't try too hard to be funny. But for now, the trailer can be viewed below. Hopefully, a second one will be released that will rightfully pump me up for this movie.
E.J. is just a simple man who loves movies. Don't judge.
