ComingSoon.net reports that John Rambo, also known as Rambo IV, will come to theatres on January 25. This does not bode well for the movie, since January is traditionally a dumping ground for films that studios don’t have much confidence in.
For comparison’s sake, Sylvester Stallone’s other recent franchise revival, Rocky Balboa, opened a few days before Christmas — a much more auspicious release date.
Incidentally, the film has a new, “restricted” trailer — and while it adds to the hyper-violent imagery of the earlier promo reel, it does not have any of the religious symbolism.
