  • Award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s Creed explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed. Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring. With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring? Creed also stars Tessa Thompson (“Selma,” “Dear White People”) as Bianca, a local singer-songwriter who becomes involved with Adonis; Phylicia Rashad (Lifetime’s “Steel Magnolias”) as Mary Anne Creed, Apollo’s widow; and English pro boxer and former three-time ABA Heavyweight Champion Anthony Bellew as boxing champ “Pretty” Ricky Conlan.

  • Grudge Match stars award-winning movie legends Oscar® winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Silver Linings Playbook) and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone (the Rocky films, The Expendables) as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match.  Peter Segal (Get Smart) directs the comedy.

    In Grudge Match, De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight.  Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers.  Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all.  

  • Jack Carter (Sylvester Stallone) has spent his life collecting for other people – debts, agendas, and retribution. When his brother is killed in an accident, Carter returns home to the family he abandoned and the debts that were never paid. The trip home is a second chance to make amends for the past mistakes. 

    Despite initial suspicions for his brother’s wife, Gloria (Miranda Richardson) and her teenage daughter, Doreen (Rachael Leigh Cook), Jack forms an uneasy truce with Doreen, and soon she is helping him navigate the violent underbelly of the city, through a deceptive world where nothing is what it seems. Produce Mark Canton brings you Get Carter, the new slick action thriller, a sharp and brutal remake of the 1971 classic, also starring Michael Caine and Mickey Rourke.

    The action s hard and fast when Sylvester Stallone as Rath and Antonio Banderas as Bain square off as Assassins. Julianna Moore plays the wily hacker swept into the duo’s fierce running battle. Director Richard Donner infuses this take with exciting action riffs plunging you into a world where what counts is not making the first move, but surviving the last.

  • Two dynamic stars combine fiery action with steamy sensuality in The Specialist, Sharon Stone is May Munro, a beauty with a fatal past. She's sworn death to the mobsters who murdered her parents.

But a vicious mob boss (Rob Steiger), his brash son (Eric Roberts) and a psychotic hired gun (James Woods) with a lethal grudge against Quick won't go without a fight. The passion the two avengers share can't hide Ray's ominous qusetion. Is May falling for him... or setting him up too?

  • Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes go at it amid a dazzling cyber-future in this explosive hit. In 2032 arch-criminal Simon Phoenix (Snipes) awakens from a 35-year deep freeze in CryoPrison to find a serene, nonviolent Los Angeles ready for the taking. 

    Unable to deal with Phoenix’s brutal 1990s style, officials seek an old-fashioned cop to fight old-fashioned crime. They revive Sgt. John Spartan (Stallone), unjustly serving a CryoPrison sentence because of his last encounter with Phoenix. Sandra Bullock and Benjamin Bratt also uphold the law.

  • Ray Tango (Sylvester Stallone) and Gabe Cash (Kurt Russell) are rival L.A. policemen with one thing in common: each thinks he is the best. Team them and they’re like oil and water. But frame then for a crime and they’re like a match and kerosene.  

    Stallone and Russell deliver sweaty excitement, sex appeal and outrageous laughs in this action-comedy from the director of Runaway Train. The two stage a prison breakout that’s a breathless rush of weapons and wisecracks – then roar after the shadowy crimelord (Jack Palance) who set them up. Tango & Cash are out to clear their names. Join them and feel the rush.

  • Like Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky and Rambo, the hero of Cobra is another original: Lt. Marion Cobretti, a one-man assault force whose laser-mount submachine gun and pearl-handled Colt .45 spit pure crime-stopping venom. 

    Rambo: First Blood Part II director George P. Cosmatos rejoins Stallone for this thriller pitting Cobretti against a merciless serial killer. The trail leads to not one murderer but to an army of psychos bent on slashing their way to a “New Order” — and killing the inadvertent witness (Brigitte Nielsen) to their latest blood spree. Fortunately, Cobra is her protector. And full-throttle screen excitement doesn’t get any better.
