    Yeah...Sly is desperate for money these days. Rambo IV comes out next year.

    It's probably going to be horrible, I know. But will I see it? Yeah. Will I go opening weekend? Probably so. Will I wear my gloves and trunks? ....Heck no, I'm not a freakshow. :)

    Wasn't it Airplane II that had a brief clip of a movie poster for "Rocky XXXVIII" with a withered old Stallone wearing boxing gloves on it?

    I can't wait for this movie -- I'm a huge fan of the Rocky series and I would have hated for the series to end with Tommy Gunn :rolleyes:

    Im gonna have to admit that i am totally pumped about this movie. If we can all just forget the last rocky movie with tommy gunn in it then this is actually an excellent series. And this trailer rocks (pun intended)!!!!! The line about making some hurtin bombs is pretty lame though. I am soooo buying a ticket on opening day.


    Adriiiiaaannnn!!!!!

    Adrian is only appears breifly as far as I can tell. Talia Shire, the actress that plays her is only credited as appearing via archive footage. I bet she dies, or is dead in Rocky 6.

    Being that as it may, I love the Rocky series and am looking forward to this one.

    The actress that played Adrian passed away so instead of replacing her, Sly felt to "kill her off" in the series.

    Talia Shire is very much alive.

    From Wikipedia:

    Talia Shire is NOT in the cast for the upcoming movie "Rockie Balboa" (Rocky VI) which is scheduled to be released on December 22, 2006. Reportedly, in the movie, Adreinne died from cancer years earlier. This, however, is the very thing which sets the stage for the new film. Her death was instrumental in sending Rocky downhill into booze, depression, and bankruptcy. The new film is about his resurrection from the ashes. So, even in her very noticeable absence, Talia Shire AKA Adrienne, is really there in Rocky VI.

    Rocky VI: "Rocky Balboa must fight a losing battle against prostate cancer and dementia. He's not paranoid, but his nurses are are trying to steal his money."

    Well I guess I was treated then -- I thought I watched something on TV that stated that Talia Shire passed away and that's why Rocky chose to omit her character from the cast

    He may not be as rock hard and chisled as he used to be, but the man is 60 years old and looks darn good if you ask me. Did you see him in the ring? Holy crap! Im only a yongster and Im sure that Sly could punch a hole in my skull.

    Adrian is already dead in this film. There is a really quick shot of rocky with some flowers in the trailer... he is at her grave.
