Rocky Balboa proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago, a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union.
Sylvester Stallone has been quoted as saying the enormous financial success and fan-following of Rocky IV once had him envisioning another Rocky movie devoted to Drago and his post-boxing life, with Balboa's storyline running parallel to Drago's. However, he noted ... ...
If he dies, he dies.
Throughout Rocky's training in the wilds of the USSR he is frequently filmed with the Tetons and the Grand Teton in particular in the background. Only notable because of how identifiable and unique the Teton range is. Given that the film was shot during the Cold War, it would have been very difficult, if not impossible, for a film which is basically about the Cold War and the Russians losing, to be filmed in the USSR.
Only Rocky film that doesn't start with the "scrolling Rocky" logo.
