'Rocky Balboa': The production vlog

92943__rocky_lFirst King Kong, now Rocky. Want to see Rocky Balboa take shape, literally? Sylvester Stallone has launched an online production video diary, a la kongisking.net, for his sixth Rocky movie. So far, rockybalboablog.com has just one entry, in which Stallone explains that he’ll be fighting real-life current light heavyweight champ Antonio Tarver in the film, and that he hired the currently active boxer for the sake of realism — or, as Tarver says in the clip, ”more danger than realism.” Watch til the end, though, and you’ll see that the 59-year-old Stallone really is still in top fighting form. Can’t wait for his next ab-tastic video post.

    I was an extra for two days on the set of “Rocky Balboa” while they shot some of the fight scene between Stallone and Tarver in Las Vegas. People can make all the old man jokes they want, but Stallone is in better shape at 59 than most other men at any age. He really is believable standing next to a real-life boxer like Tarver. From what I saw the big fight scene in this movie should measure up to the scenes from 1-4. As long as the movie handles the emotional aspect of the story well (particularly Rocky’s conflict with his son and his own struggles with self-doubt)this could be a really good film and not just the vanity project most people suspect.

    It’s a shame Rocky Balboa isn’t going to fight Ivan Drago (from Rocky 4) in this movie for a rematch. The parody article about it is pretty funny at http://www.robbloom.com/creative/drago.htm

    Thanks for posting the link to the Rob Bloom article about Drago and Rocky. I’d love to see Drago make an appearance in Rocky Balboa.
