The highly anticipated Rocky IV director’s cut has been revealed in an epic new trailer, showing new footage of Rocky Balboa, Ivan Drago, Apollo Creed, and more. Seen by many as the greatest fight in the entire Rocky franchise, the battle of Rocky vs. Drago first premiered in 1985, earning over $300 million worldwide on a budget of just $28 million. While it may not be the greatest overall film in the series, Rocky IV is unequivocally still a classic.
Because of the numerous disappointments of Rocky V – a film some would rather pretend doesn’t exist – Rocky IV is in some ways the culmination of the original series. The story of Rocky IV came back in a big way in Creed II, which saw Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) battling the son of Ivan Drago, with Dolph Lundgren also returning to face off with Sylvester Stallone once again. Now, the original duel between Rocky and Drago is coming back to theaters for a limited release of the new director’s cut.
