Netflix has dropped a new teaser trailer for “Sly,” which chronicles Sylvester Stallone’s highs and lows of his near 50-year Hollywood career. “Sly” is directed by Thom Zimny (“Springsteen on Broadway”) and produced by Sean Stuart.
The 40-second clip doesn’t give much away about the content of the documentary. But in the first-look clip, Stallone asks in a teaser, “Hell yeah, I have regrets.” Stallone reflects on his career achievements and their costs. “What is healthier — to live under the illusion that you could have been great? Or actually have an opportunity to be great, and then you blow it, and you realize you’re a failure?” Take us back to his memory lane including his first trip to the Oscars in 1977, where “Rocky” won best picture.
The official logline explains of the film : “For nearly 50 years, Sylvester Stallone has entertained millions with iconic characters and blockbuster franchises, from “Rocky” to “Rambo” to “The Expendables.” This retrospective documentary offers an intimate look at the Oscar-nominated actor-writer-director-producer, paralleling his inspirational underdog-story with the indelible characters he has brought to life.”
Stallone also serves as an executive producer on the documentary alongside Bill Zanker, Sam Delcanto, Braden Aftergood, Jon Beyer, Tom Forman and Jenny Daly, with Maren Domzalski and Adrienne Gerard as co-producers.
Even though his iconic character Rocky Balboa put his grove down in the latest franchise of “Creed III”, he was bust than ever, he actor recently starred in his first TV series, Paramount+’s “Tulsa King,” followed by “The Family Stallone” reality series, which also featured his wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone and their three daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet.
On the big screen, Stallone has been playing the supporting role in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” and 2021’s “The Suicide Squad,” where the actor voiced King Shark. And he’s also returning for “Expend4bles,” the action franchise’s fourth installment
“Sly” premieres this November on Netflix.
