Rocky is a cult classic boxing drama that had rocketed Sylvester Stallone to stardom. It tells a story of a working-class Italian-American boxer without any education or possibilities who turns his life into an American Dream story.

The film was such a huge success that it was made into two more sequels. The first Rocky collected $1.4 billion at the box office, becoming one of the most popular franchises in movie history.
