Sylvester Stallone’s extended cut of Rocky IV will be arriving in two weeks – and here are all the UK cinemas showing Rocky IV.
You might be able to tell that we’re rather excited over the incoming extended director’s cut of Rocky IV. Entitled Rocky IV: Rocky Vs Drago, Sylvester Stallone has gone back to one of his absolute finest films (don’t @ me). He’s added some 40 minutes of fresh material to the movie, albeit with the collateral damage of taking the robot out. You can’t have everything.
The film is heading to video on demand platforms in due course, but we’re delighted to report that it is getting a cinema release in the UK. Furthermore, we’ve now discovered that it’s getting a very wide cinema release too.
The UK release of the new cut is Friday November 19th, and we can confirm that Vue Cinemas has picked the movie up. It’ll be screening it – from what we can tell – at every single one of its sites around the UK from the 19th. We don’t know as of yet if that’s just a single performance or a more extended run. But it’s definitely coming to lots and lots of Vue screens.
We’ve also now learned that the Odeon chain has booked the film for the same week, and it’ll be playing at Odeon sites all around the country.
On top of that, from the 19th it’ll be at two Parkway sites, in Beverly and Cleethorpes. Lume Cinema in Kidderminster has it from the same date.
Then there’s London’s Prince Charles Cinema regularly playing the film through to the middle of December, and the Light Cinema chain will be showing it across most of their sites on either November 23rd or November 27th.
The lovely Mockingbird Cinema in Birmingham will play the film on November 27th, whilst the Archlight in Battersea has it on the 24th. The 24th is also the day it’ll be at London’s Barnes Cinema, and at – get this – The Cinema At Selfridges in London too. I’m not posh enough for Selfridges, but this site will be the first to break the news if the Halesowen branch of Aldi gets a cinema screen.
