The Surprising Reason Why “Eye of the Tiger” Became the Theme Song to Rocky III

The short version of why Eye Of The Tiger was created as the theme song to Rocky III was because Queen wouldn’t allow Sylvester Stallone to use Another One Bites The Dust. The longer version goes into a little more detail since Stallone still used Queen’s song as a temporary background when he delivered the song to guitarist Jim Peterik. When Jim, who’s been associated with some of the biggest names in rock and roll, heard that Queen wouldn’t allow Stallone to use their song he was immediately grateful as he first watched the montage that Stallone and given him

Creed 2 Release Date Announced
After months of speculation, Sylvester Stallone's Creed 2 now has an official release date of November 18th, 2018. Stallone has previously been cryptic about the follow-up, but he announced earlier this month that he will direct and produce the sequel that will see the return of star Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's late friend and previous rival, Apollo Creed.

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017

What’s Coming to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime in November 2017
November may mean the end of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that the creepy fun has to end as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon continue to add some freaky films to November’s list of streaming content.

Netflix will start the month off with films like “Oculus” and “Silent Hill” for fans of big scares and “Casper” and “Scary Movie” for those who looking for a milder way to keep the Halloween spirit alive, and will also add in “9” and “Piranha” later in the month. For those who would rather leave the October spookiness behind, science fiction comedies like “Chappie” and “Men in Black” or family-friendly films like “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Boss Baby” should make for fun movie nights.

Hulu will also keep the frights coming with offerings like “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “Beowulf,” but will also get a headstart on the winter holiday season with “Christmas with the Cranks,” Happy Christmas,” and collection

Sylvester Stallone Reveals He is Directing 'Creed 2'

  • Movies.com
Nobody expected Creed to be such a phenomenal success, but the Rocky franchise legacy sequel had a winning team. Writer-director Ryan Coogler and his regular leading man Michael B. Jordan plus an Oscar-worthy supporting turn by original star Sylvester Stallone added up to a series-best Rotten Tomatoes score of 95% plus its best box office success in 30 years and its first Academy Awards recognition since Rocky III in 1982. The same group won't be all together again for the next installment, as Coogler moved on to Black Panther (with Jordan co-starring there) and has apparently declined to return for Creed 2. Instead, as revealed on Instagram, Stallone is "looking forward to directing and producing" the sequel. "One more round!" he...

Rocky Creator Sylvester Stallone Will Direct Creed 2
The pieces of the puzzle for Creed 2 are really starting to fall into place now. Sylvester Stallone recently finished writing the script for the movie and it looks like the sequel is going to start shooting February 2018. Now, we know who's going to be directing the next movie in the Rocky franchise and, in a somewhat surprising yet not surprising at all announcement, Sylvester Stallone has announced that he is going to direct the movie himself.

Many had assumed that, given the success of Creed, director Ryan Coogler would return. However, he's been busy filming Black Panther for Marvel and it looks like he's not going to be able to make it back for Creed 2 in time. So Sylvester Stallone, the man who built the Rocky franchise with his blood, sweat and tears, is going to step behind the camera once again and direct this thing.

Creed 2 Finds A New Director

  • Cinelinx
First off Mark Rylance is a bum, and Sylvester Stallone deserved the Oscar for Creed. Perhaps he can win one for Creed 2! For a Supporting role, or Directing.

The Argument can be made that Ryan Coogler brought us one of, if not the, best Rocky movie to date in 2015. Creed was heartfelt and full of Rocky spirit. For 2 years now we have been waiting on news of the sequel. However due to Michael B. Jordan teaming along with Coogler for Marvel’s Black Panther, little has been known about a sequel, until now.

Rumors began swirling early on about the plot of a proposed sequel involving Adonis Creed coming face to face with the man who killed his father, Ivan Drago, originally played by Dolph Lungren. Now, Sylvester Stallone has announced via his Instagram that Creed 2 is officially on the way, with himself at the helm to bring Michael B.

Sylvester Stallone to Direct ‘Creed 2’

  • Collider.com
Ryan Coogler directed the best Rocky movie since Rocky with Creed, but unfortunately, he’s not returning to helm Creed 2. Pre-production on the sequel has slowly been moving forward with the plot involving Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) and the man who killed his father, Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). Plot details on all of his are still fuzzy, but we now know who will be helming the film: Sylvester Stallone. Stallone’s got an interesting filmography. He’s directed genuinely good movies like Rocky Balboa, Rocky III, and even the delightfully bonkers Rambo. But he’s also helmed …

Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Mma champion Conor McGregor will collide during a much-anticipated boxing match in Las Vegas on August 26.

Mayweather, 40, the undefeated and now-unretired boxing legend, and McGregor, 29, the current Ufc lightweight champion, are two of the most polarizing figures in sports.

Their match is expected to draw a record audience of 50 million people—but some argue that the real fight has already happened outside of the ring.

It's not an exaggeration to say that the Rocky movies were inconsistent in presenting memorable opponents for Sylvester Stallone's "Italian Stallion" to face in the ring. The first Rocky and its sequel gave us Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), who went from rival to respected friend, and Rocky III gave us a straight-up cartoonish villain thanks to Clubber Lang (Mr. T), but Tommy Gunn...
