Last year, Rocky celebrated its 40th anniversary, which many critics recognize as one of the greatest sports dramas in the history of cinema. In his interviews, Sylvester Stallone has said more than once that he was inspired by a fight between Muhammad Ali and Chuck Wepner to create the script for the film about the Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa .|
Now in Hollywood they finally decided to make a film about a heavyweight, which became the prototype of the legendary movie hero. The LostFilm.INFO gallery contains footage from the boxing drama " Bloodletter ", which will tell viewers about the ups and downs in the sports career and personal life of Wepner .
In the early 70s, the boxer suffered a series of defeats, after which experts made the assumption that he would never be able to earn the right to fight for the world title. Chuck did not give up and already in 1975 received an offer to hold a title fight for the WBC and WBA associations. Sports journalists predicted Ali an easy victory, but Wepner managed to show miracles of fortitude and courage. He lasted fifteen rounds, but was still defeated by technical knockout. When the film about Balboa was successful at the box office and received ten nominations for the " Oscar ", Chuck was given the nickname The Real Rocky b>. Boxer image, whose face has received 313 stitches over the fourteen years of his professional career, was embodied by Liv Schreiber.
The next film in the " Kickboxer " franchise promises to present no less bloody battles to the audience. It seems that the action movie actors are so accustomed to their roles that even with the cameras turned off they do not get tired of throwing very frightening glances at each other. It is expected that Jean-Claude van Damme will return to the image of the master Durand in the second part of the rebooted franchise, whom our readers can find in the company of his old friend Dolph Lundgren in the promotional shots of the action " Black Waters".
If the new " Kickboxer " and " Black Waters " are unlikely to qualify for high box office receipts, then many other films from our today's selection have excellent chances to become real box office hits ... Fans of movie comics will surely be pleased with the new shots from the films " Spider-Man: Homecoming ", " Guardians of the Galaxy. Part 2 "and" Wonder Woman ". Fans of franchises can also take a look at photos from the filming of the film " Mission: Impossible 6 " and meet the main characters of the blockbuster " The Mummy ", which will launch a new cinematic universe of the studio Universal .
