SZ Exclusive: Sly at Planet Hollywood to Promote “Get Carter”

On Monday, September 25th, SYLVESTER STALLONE made a live appearance at Planet Hollywood New York to promote “Get Carter.”

STALLONEZONE staffer Ernest “Jazzman” Resendes was there and sent in the accompanying pictures and text. Fellow SZ-staffer “Big” Beatty combined Jazz‘ pics and text to create this flash picture-book. Sadly flash is no longer supported. – Craig Zablo (2021)

“Get Carter” – Total Movie Coverage

The picture above appears twice [once in the table of contents and again as a TWO page spread] in the premiere issue of Total Movie. Here’s their take on

Get Carter

IN A NUTSHELL: Back on the screen for the first time since 1997’s Cop LandSTALLONE heads up this remake of the 1971 MICHAEL CAINE classic as Jack Carter, a bad-ass New York mob enforcer who travels to Los Angeles to kill the sons-of-bitches who murdered his brother. Heads are cracked, asses are kicked and bad guys throughly pummeled as Carter goes on a vengence-fueled rampage though LA’s criminal underworld.

POTENTIAL: The script’s written by TED LEWIS, who wrote the orginal, and DAVID McKENNA, who wrote American History X – a promising team. STEVEN SODERBERG‘s awesome The Limey proved that these old-school one-man-army thrillers can still pay off in spades, so our hopes are high. And yes, MICHAEL CAINE is back, too.

PITTFALLS: Even MEL GIBSON had a hard time getting audiences to root for the bad guy in the underrated Payback, so what chance STALLONE? In the 1990s he served up such crud as Judge DreddAssassinsDaylightOscarThe Specialist, and Cliffhanger (come on, it was crap) – not exactly encouraging evidence of his choices of material. Oh, and MICKEY ROURKE‘s in it.

TOTAL MOVIE SAYS: Go and rent the original for an idea about why we’re excited to see this one – STALLONE‘s stepped in a few turds lately, true, but we have a feeling this hard-edged crime caper will prove that he can still get it done.

The editors are pretty down on many of SLY‘s movies yet they still eagerly anticpate “Get Carter” – I think that says a lot about the potential of this movie. I’m looking forward to this as much as I did “Cop Land” and feel that it has the potential to be as good [or even better].

This is Total Movie‘s first issue and it is very impressive… enough so that I plan to subscribe. It’s worth checking out but be sure that if you purchase an issue it is still in a plastic bag with a dvd attached. The dvd contains over two hours of movie previews, behind the scenes material and more! The first store I went to had only opened copies and all the dvds were missing!

The September 19, 2000 issue of STAR contains the following item in its STARPEOPLE section: SLY STALLONE is one driven guy, all right! He plays a race car driver in his new flick “Driven” and he insists on doing all his own stunts, including driving at speeds over 190 miles per hour. Studio heads have their fingers crossed that the daredevil doesn’t break his neck while the film is being shot. Luckily, Sly has the good sense NOT to do his own crash scenes. He’s leaving those to a body double.”- Craig Zablo (September 23, 2000)

“Get Carter” Coverage in Preview


Drama starring Sylvester Stallone, Miranda Richardson, and Rachel Leigh Cook; directed by Stephen T. Kay Release date: Oct. 6 (Warner Bros.)

Sly‘s on the hunt – this time for second blood – as Jack Carter, a Vegas mobster trying to find his brother’s killer. his quest brings him to Seattle, where he reunites with his brother’s wife (Richardson) and daughter (Leigh Cook). Carter is a remake of the 1971 British film of the same name, which starred Michael Caine, who appears here as a club owner. Other cast members include Alan Cumming and Mickey Rourke, along with Gretchen Mol as Carter’s moll. And behind the scenes, “Battlefield Earth” producer Elie Samaha hopes to ride Stallone‘s coattails out of the vanity-project dead end he drove into with John Travolta.
