Apparently the previous Rambo movies were like pulling teeth to edit, but Rambo V: Last Blood is coming together "beautifully." Sylvester Stallone just gave fans a couple of updates, posting more photos from the film and also a video sharing his excitement for the fifth Rambo movie. Sly says this movie will surprise a lot of fans, especially with its "unexpected" ending...
Hopefully the studio doesn't give Sylvester Stallone too many notes, 'cause that could certainly dampen his current high spirits. Sly shared his excitement in a cool new Instagram video, which you can watch here:
His enthusiasm is pretty infectious, and it's good to hear this movie is having an easier birth than the previous ones. I'm slightly worried about the surprise ending, though. Hopefully it doesn't mean anything bad for Vietnam vet John Rambo, although if this is "last blood" that might suggest a definitive end.
Speaking of the ending, though, right before posting that video, Sylvester Stallone posted a couple of images with the ominous caption "A brutal Storm is about to burst ... this is beginning of battle to the end ... Sept. 20..." Battle to the end, eh? Here's that post:
A brutal storm about to burst. The beginning of the battle to the end. Huh. We're on standby for a trailer, and that may help fill in some of the gaps. The movie is meant to follow Rambo as he travels to Mexico to help save a friend's daughter, who was kidnapped by the Mexican cartel.
The first Rambo movie was called First Blood, after the 1972 novel by David Morrell. The 1982 movie was followed by Rambo: First Blood Part II in 1985, then Rambo III in 1988, Rambo in 2008, and now Rambo V: Last Blood.
Sylvester Stallone recently said he had to take a break from gym time because making Rambo 5 roughed him up so much. But he's apparently back in the gym -- where he sometimes runs into old co-stars like Billy Dee Williams -- and I'm just hoping he's working on getting himself in top shape for The Expendables 4. There haven't been many official details on that movie in a while, but Sly hyped up the franchise just last week, reminding us all that the fourth movie should still be on its way. Stallone also has Escape Plan: The Extractors in the works. He's keeping busy at 72!
Rambo V: Last Blood is set to open in theaters on September 20, as one of the many movies worth keeping an eye on through our 2019 movie release date schedule.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
