Rocky Balboa Trailer Goes Live

The promo for his new film

“The greatest underdog story ever told is back for one final round…” So the gravel-voiced trailer man tells us in the new promo for Rocky Balboa. Given the evidence of this long-in-the-developing sixth instalment in Rocky’s story, we wouldn’t be so quick to add that “final” bit.

But then, given the way Sylvester Stallone looks in the footage, we’re guessing they’ll need a fully functional robot body to get him back in the ring next time. And that would be cheating.

Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy the trailer, which follows Rocky considering taking on the new young champ after a TV sports show simulation shows he has a shot and beating the reigning boxer. Catch it here.
