Sylvester Stallone returns to Cannes as Rambo 26 years after his red carpet screening of Cliffhanger!

Happy to have Stallone revive my memory lane! I had so much fun organising the premiere of Cliffhanger in Cannes for the Amfar Charity event at Hotel du Cap in 1993 (with Liz Taylor as chairwoman).

My team had organized among other crazy things  5 climbers coming down from the roof of the Palais with ropes, Eye of Tiger music on the red carpet ...and as a nice conclusion to the evening: Sly telling my "Best day in my Life" I still the cecho and music to my hear.

He will be back on screen next fall: Sylvester Stallone will star as John Rambo again, one of the most famous cinema characters in the world in recent years, who unleashed the most passions, gathered millions of spectators and even inspired writers.

 Sylvester Stallone, Rambo V : Last Blood

As he will be present at Cannes, Sylvester Stallone will have the honor of a special screening in the Palais des Festivals on Friday, May 24 at 10:30PM. He will introduce on stage some exclusive images of Rambo V. After a video montage evoking his huge career, the world premiere restoration of Ted Kotcheff's Rambo - First Blood will be screened in 4K DCP in the Grand Théâtre Lumière.

 

Rambo V: Last Blood is directed by Adrian Grunberg and produced by Millennium Films. The film will star Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega and Oscar Jaenada. Matthew Cirulnik and Sylvester Stallone wrote the script based on characters created by David Morell. The film will be released in the US and worldwide from September 20. It will be distributed in France by Metropolitan Filmexport on October 8.

 

Rambo: First Blood by Ted Kotcheff (1982), starring Sylvester Stallone, Brian Dennehy and Richard Crenna, will be screened with a restored print by Studiocanal. The restoration of the Rambo trilogy was made from the original camera negatives, which were scanned in 4K resolution 16bit in Technicolor Hollywood. Then the full restoration was done at Éclair in Paris. Grading was done respectively for theatrical by HDR Dolby. The film was restored frame by frame in the respect of the artistic choices of the original production.

 

"On the other side of the avenue, a colonne Morris was spinning slowly, uncovering Rambo's poster. She would go see the film. From now on, she would go see all of Stallone's films. Every one of them. She would not miss one. And she would not wait for them to be broadcast on television. No. She would go see them in theaters, she would pay for her ticket. She owed that to him. Because of him, her life was going to change. "
