    Sylvester Stallone is know primarily for three things. Firstly, he’s known for “Rocky”, the rags-to-riches movie that made him an overnight sensation. Secondly, he’s known for “Judge Dredd”, and essentially ruining a classic comic book character. Thirdly, he’s known for the “Rambo” movies, a series about a Vietnam war veteran with severe PTSD, who tries and utterly fails to adapt to modern civilian life. Rambo Gun Source: Orion Pictures “First Blood”, the original film in the series, hit the cultural zeitgeist at just the right time. This was probably less to do with the movie’s biting political commentary, and more...

    Sylvester Stallone was accused of sexual assault in a police report filed in Santa Monica, Lt. Saul Rodriguez of the Santa Monica Police Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. The alleged victim filed a report last month, Rodriguez said. The incident occurred in the 1990s. No further information was available. Technically, the alleged incident is past the statute of limitations for California. It is unclear if police will investigate nevertheless. This is the second time that the Rocky actor has been accused of sexual assault in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which rocked Hollywood since the first New...

    Donald Trump has drawn ‘first blood’ in the search for his incoming administration's senior arts role - by tapping up Rambo legend Sylvester Stallone. Sources have told DailyMail.com the president-elect sees Hollywood icon Stallone as the perfect choice to make art great again. The likely position would be Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency that doles out funds to aspiring artists and creative projects. If Stallone is formally offered that job, his appointment will have to be approved by Congress.

    ...Although [Sylvester Stallone has] been called a Republican, for supporting John McCain's 2008 presidential run, Stallone says he's not a member of the GOP. "May the best fighter win," he said. "I don't think you can be totally one-sided forever. Then you close your mind to all sorts of possibilities. It's just, 'Who comes along better at that time for what the planet is going through?' Right now, it's pretty confusing on every side." What does he think of the Republican frontrunner? "I love Donald Trump," he said. "He's a great Dickensian character. You know what I mean?

    ... Stallone [was] nominated for Best Actor for playing "Rocky" in 1977. (Peter Finch won for "Network.") He has never been nominated since then. But his work is so good now as the boxing coach for Jordan's Adonis Creed, Stallone is very likely to sweep in and surprise everyone. (This would be bad news for the many other potential nominees from "Spotlight" and other films.) "Creed" is a total hit, a must see movie for Thanksgiving weekend. Coogler is 29 years old and this is second movie, after the wonderful "Fruitvale Station" Not only has be brought Jordan over from...

    Origins: Like previous death hoaxes involving actors (including Jackie Chan), the Sylvester Stallone death hoax circulating on social media sites appears to stem from common culprit mediafetcher.com, a "fake news" generator. Several such sites exist, allowing Facebook and Twitter users to plug a celebrity's name into the generator and produce a "news story" reporting the star's recent death. While these death hoaxes appear on Facebook and Twitter with relative frequency, the most recent iteration of the Sylvester Stallone death hoax looks to be slightly different. Most links point back to a specific domain that appears to be a "clickjack"...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—Sylvester Stallone says that despite his "Rambo" image and new shoot-em-up film "Bullet to the Head," he's in favor of new national gun control legislation. Stallone supported the 1994 "Brady bill" that included a now-expired ban on assault weapons, and hopes that ban can be reinstated. "I know people get (upset) and go, 'They're going to take away the assault weapon.' Who ... needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you're carrying out an assault. ... You can't hunt with it. ... Who's going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?"

    Yes, we fall for it every time…but why? It isn’t so much the violence although the idea of cruel and vicious people being paid back in their own coin generates a certain degree of schadenfreude. What is of greater significance is that it plays out the triumph of good v evil, a moral imperative that, despite our own flawed behaviour, appears to be a key driver in how we wish to be perceived.

    CANNES -- Judge Dredd will dust off his helmet for what promises to be a gritty return to the big screen. The $45 million project is being bankrolled by Reliance Big Pictures and Stuart Ford's international sales banner IM Global and DNA Films, the U.K. production house headed by Andrew Macdonald. DNA Films spent more than two years negotiating with rights-holders to the 2000AD comic book character -- created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra -- who first hit the big screen in 1995 with Sylvester Stallone in the title role. Filming is scheduled to take place this year in...

    "The Expendables" is a tribute to 80s action fare starring Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Jet Li, Jason Statham and every other middle-aged action guy you can think of--except Jean Claude Van Damme and Seagal (too bad lol). Drudge is headlining this pic from their visit to the NYSE as a commentary on the struggling market. I thought it was cool because I'm a lifter and a connoisseur of dumb action movies. Plus Stallone is a patriotic guy by Hollywood standards. Too bad the economy isn't as jacked as Terry.
