For my money, the Rocky poster above is perfection. Everything from the tagline (“His whole life was a million-to-one shot”) to the black and white photography of a fighter and his woman looking at each other surrounded by stark white (nothing else in their world matters) with their backs to the viewer. The big, bold ROCKY. I love this poster. It’s a classic.
And it might not have been used if they’d gone with the first Rocky poster ever made!
Sly Stallone posted on his Instagram the art by Tom Jung below saying…
Very very very rare! Believe it or not this was the first poster ever made for the first ROCKY… Hand drawn.! This is the ONLY one in existence !!!!
