Prosecutors in Los Angeles are reviewing an allegation of sexual assault which has been made against Sylvester Stallone.
After posting a picture of Dolph Lundgren from 'Rocky IV' on his Instagram page earlier this month, Sylvester Stallone has been stoking up rumours about the plot of 'Creed 2'.
Hoping to nip a growing swell of Internet rumors in the bud, Sylvester Stallone has communicated to Deadline that he absolutely is not taking part in the Tiger Shroff’s 'First Blood,' a redo of the 1982 film that launched the 'Rambo' franchise. Through a spokesperson, Stallone states that “any involvement in Tiger Sharoff’s 'Rambo' is not happening, under any circumstances.”
Remember when Rocky headed to Russia for a Cold War bout with Ivan Drago? Well, it looks like Adonis Creed might be taking the same path.
Aside from a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in a sizzle reel shown at Comic-Con last summer, Sylvester Stallone’s role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been shrouded in mystery. Directed James Gunn swung by the Yahoo Studios this week for a Facebook Live session to talk about both his new film The Belko Experiment (in theaters now) and the Guardians sequel (out May 5), and he dropped some tantalizing tidbits about Stallone’s top-secret role. “Look for clues and you will find out the character Sylvester Stallone plays.

In her new book, Love, Loss and What We Ate, excerpted in People, Padma Lakshmi writes that her one of her first thoughts upon learning she was pregnant in 2009 was “not so much ‘How?’ but the far more uncomfortable ‘Who?’” Lakshmi is hardly the first celebrity to go through a very public paternity scandal. Here are the top six, in no particular order:
The 69-year-old ‘Creed’ star, Sylvester Stallone, had been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in the recent ‘Rocky’ sequel. Appearing on Twitter, Stallone’s younger brother made his thoughts painfully clear. “The Academy should be ashamed of themselves,” said actor-musician Frank Stallone in a cutting series of tweets.
Woody Allen has always been slightly frustrated that ‘Annie Hall’ is called the greatest romcom of all-time, mostly because his original concept wasn’t a romcom at all. Editor Ralph Rosenblum has said that the original footage was non-dramatic and too disparate, despite being hilarious and sophisticated. In the end, Allen was convinced that the relationship with Annie (Diane Keaton) was the heart of the movie and while some meta stuff remains (fourth wall-breaking, the subtitles, Marshall McLuhan), the simplified, dare we say more romantic version, has rightly taken its place in comedy history.
Sylvester Stallone is nominated for his first Academy Award in nearly 40 years, but the 69-year-old actor said he was willing to skip the Feb. 28 ceremony out of loyalty. The Creed star, who’s a front-runner to win Best Supporting Actor for his performance as an aging Rocky Balboa, told reporters at the annual nominees luncheon on Monday that he considered not attending the Oscars in recognition of the Academy’s failure to nominate a single black artist in a major category.
In this age of buff bodied movie stars with their cucumber water and kale smoothies, the attraction of acting roles that require a bit of weight gain must be irresistible. Emma Stone recently revealed she’d added 15lbs to play tennis legend Billie Jean King in ‘Battle of the Sexes’ through protein shakes and hardcore workouts. Here’s 15 more actors who beefed up and bulked out in the name of art.
A few weeks ago, Sylvester Stallone posted a behind-the-scenes video from Creed to his Twitter account, showing star Michael B. Jordan taking a real punch from boxing world champion Tony Bellow (who played his onscreen rival “Pretty” Ricky Conlan). Turns out that getting KO’d by a pro is a Rocky tradition. On Monday’s Tonight Show, franchise creator Stallone (who produced and co-stars in Creed) told host Jimmy Fallon that Jordan’s knockout was his “initiation” into the Rocky family. Watch the clip above.
Creed star Michael B. Jordan wasn’t nominated for a SAG Award or a Golden Globe, but he’s won something even more valuable: co-star Sylvester Stallone’s respect. “But he got up and did it again! That’s called guts!!” Michael B Jordon, “young creed and "getting KO’d for real! But he got up and did it again! That’s called guts!! pic.twitter.com/yFo3PVmvhA— Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) December 9, 2015 And after six Rocky films — along with plenty of Expendables and Rambo flicks — Stallone knows a little something about guts.
Andy Karl as Rocky and Margo Seibert as Adrian in ‘Rocky the Musical’ (AP Photo/Polk and Co., Matthew Murphy) In February 2014, Rocky Balboa — the boxer who knocked down Mr. T, conquered the human Cold War symbol Ivan Drago, and pioneered the Siberian training montage — did something unprecedented in his nearly 40-year career: He got up onstage and sang his heart out. A musical version of Rocky may sound like a joke, but the show that opened at New York’s Winter Garden Theater last year (starring Andy Karl in the title role) was as heartfelt and thrilling as the 1976 film that inspired it.
In fact, as Michael B. Jordan told Yahoo Movies in the video above, he requested that the caterers brought cheesesteaks to the set after he finished all of his boxing scenes, so the actor could pig out. In fact, that was the controversial preference offered up by nearly everyone that Yahoo spoke to from the film, including director Ryan Coogler. Tessa Thompson, who co-stars in the film, is also on the chicken bandwagon — but even more controversially, doesn’t like ketchup.
With Creed in theaters on Wednesday, Sylvester Stallone passes the Rocky movies torch to 28-year-old Michael B. Jordan.
