What is “Rocky IV” from 1985 about?
After Rocky Balboa (Stallone) won in “Rocky 3 – The Tiger’s Eye” against Clubber Lang (Mr. T), he is now the champion and enjoys life. But soon a new opponent challenges him: the Russian Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). After Drago kills Rocky’s friend and mentor Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in an exhibition match in Las Vegas, Rocky vows revenge and accepts the challenge from Drago. In cold Siberia, Rocky prepares for the fight, while Drago is trained with the latest technology. A victory against the fighting machine Drago seems hopeless for Rocky, but he faces the Russian and it comes to the fight of the century in Moscow.
As Stallone announced, in addition to the new director’s cut, there will also be a documentary about the making of the film with the title “Keep Punching: The Present Meets the Past”. In previously released footage from the documentary, Sly said:
“If you can re-edit your film, I guarantee you would approach it with sensitivity, wisdom and confidence: ‘Oh, why haven’t I seen this before?’ We all have the right to follow our dreams, to hold on to our beliefs, because that is ultimately all you have, and if you keep believing in it, dreams will come true at some point. “
“Rocky vs. Drago – The Ultimate Director’s Cut” should be on November 11th to be released in the United States.
