This Movie Is About.
Rocky is a 1976 American sports drama film that won the Oscar for Best Picture, directed by John G. Avildsen, written by and starring Sylvester Stallone. It tells the rags to riches American Dream story of Rocky Balboa, an uneducated, kind-hearted working class Italian-American boxer, working as a debt collector for a loan shark in the slums of Philadelphia. Rocky, a small-time club fighter, gets a shot at the world heavyweight championship. The film also stars Talia Shire as Adrian, Burt Young as Adrian's brother Paulie, Burgess Meredith as Rocky's trainer Mickey Goldmill, and Carl Weathers as the reigning champion, Apollo Creed.The film, made on a budget of just over $1.1 million, was a sleeper hit; it earned $225 million in global box office receipts, becoming the highest-grossing film of 1976. The film was critically acclaimed and solidified Stallone's career and was the beginning of his rise to prominence as a major movie star of that era. Among other accolades, it received ten Academy Award nominations, winning three, including Best Picture. In 2006, the Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant". Critics consider Rocky one of the greatest sports films ever made and the American Film Institute ranked it the second-best in the genre, after Raging Bull in 2008.The film has spawned eight sequels: Rocky II (1979), Rocky III (1982), Rocky IV (1985), Rocky V (1990), Rocky Balboa (2006), Creed (2015), Creed II (2018), and Creed III (2022). Stallone portrays Rocky in the first eight films, wrote six, co-wrote two, and directed four of the six titular installments.
