Webber, a STALLONE fan from Finland sent in the pics on this page with the following info: “I’m a huge SYLVESTER STALLONE fan. The first time I saw STALLONE was in Rocky 3 when I was nine. Then I saw Rocky 4 and I became a STALLONE fan. I’m still a huge fan. I try to find information about STALLONE from magazines and from the internet and StalloneZone is the best for that.”
Thanks again to Webber for sending in the pics

Vesa Miettinen from Finland sent in the three pictures posted above. Several websites have published the poster and the second of the two pics but the first pic, to my knowledge is premiering at the SZ!
Vesa, thanks for taking the time to email the pictures!

The July 24, 2000 issue of US Weekly contains the following item in the US Hot Stuff column by Marcus Baram and Marc S. Malkin:
Maybe Sly’s Shy?
SYLVESTER STALLONE hasn’t had a hit in years, but he still acts like a superstar. Extras on his upcoming movie, Get Carter, complain they were instructed not to make eye contact with him, a source tells Hot Stuff. “We were told by [assistant directors] never to look at him or in his direction,” one bit player gripes. This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard about STALLONE‘s less-than-democratic tendencies. Five ex-employees sued the actor and his wife, JENNIFER FLAVIN, in November, alleging they were unjustly fired for violating the couple’s rules, which apparently required staffers to back silently out of a room as soon as STALLONE entered. SLY and FLAVIN countersued, accusing the workers of slander and false-light invasion of privacy. (The cases are still pending.) STALLONE‘s rep insists the actor has never had a no-look policy.
While the picture that appears with this item is pretty cool, I’d file the rest of it as “tabloid news.” One un-named source identified as a griping bit player? Puh-lease.
THREE STALLONE ITEMS
On May 28th, JASON93 posted the web address for a reviewer who caught a sneak preview of “Detox” way back in November of last year. The reviewer ultimately rated the film 3 out of ten but did like some aspects of the film. To view the review click
On May 30th, COMING ATTRACTIONS ran a follow-up item from MR. ANONYMOUS who has nothing but praise for “Get Carter.” Mr. Anonymous says that he caught an advance screening and “boy, did the movie deliver. It had top notch performances from the entire cast… How was Sly you ask? I have to say that Stallone was EXCELLENT as Jack Carter. “Get Carter” has got to be Stallone’s best movie in years.” MA goes on to praise the director, cinematographer and Stallone some more!
On June 1st, EDWIN5 posted three web addresses which contained pictures of SLY. One of the pictures was a cool close-up shot of SLY getting ready to lower the visor of his helmet. On the same day ANDREW posted on the board that he had forwarded the photo to the DARK HORIZONS and AIN’T IT COOL websites. On June 2nd the photo appeared at DARK HORIZONS giving credit to the STALLONE ZONE. Thanks to both EDWIN5 and ANDREW (as well as GARTH!)

The May 23, 2000 issue of STAR contains an item in the StarPeople section:
SYLVESTER STALLONE claims he destroyed his little black book when he married JENNIFER FLAVIN, but that doesn’t stop him from playing matchmaker for his new pal MICKEY ROURKE. The guys became fast friends as co-stars in the upcoming remake of “Get Carter.” Mickey still carries a torch for his ex-wife, CARRE OTIS, but she wants nothing to do with him. SLY feels so sorry for the guy, he’s been encouraging Mickey to get back in the dating game. He’s even asked Jennifer to fix Mickey up with some of her model friends.
“Get Carter” could be a comeback film for Mickey Rourke.
