‘Rocky II’ 40 Year Anniversary!

At WOGA we’re big music fans, movie fans, and fans of the 70s! So here’s something real special to us..

Made for the relatively low budget of roughly $1 million, the original Rocky was a surprise success story. The movie would become the highest-grossing movie of 1976, raking in over $225 million at the global box office, and winning three Academy Awards, including Best Picture! A sequel was inevitable..

With the unforgettable soundtrack of Survivor’s ‘Eye of the Tiger’ (which was almost, instead, Queen’s ‘Another One Bites the Dust‘!) Rocky II was released to much excitement in June of 1979.. 40 years ago this month! To celebrate, we enjoyed the original theatrical trailer one more time:
