Rocky IV: guilty pleasure turns 30
The director’s cut of Rocky IV will contain a number of changes from the original: it will give space to the death of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), will include unreleased video material such as a new fight between Rocky Balboa (Stallone) and Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) and will see the elimination of the robot given to Paulie, that Stallone felt little in tune with what he had in mind for the new version of the film so much to declare:
“The robot will go to the landfill forever, no more robots”.
The decision sparked a response from International Robotics founder and SICO voice actor Robert Doornick who claimed that Stallone cut scenes from the robot in order to save money on commissions paid to Doornick for using it in the film version.
