RAMBO 6: NEW BLOOD – Teaser Trailer 2024 | Sylvester Stallone, Jon Bernthal
RAMBO 6: NEW BLOOD – Teaser Trailer 2024 | Sylvester Stallone, Jon Bernthal Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo prequel idea expands on the best part of John Rambo’s First Blood story arc while also allowing Rambo: Last Blood to truly be “Last Blood.” The Rambo franchise got off to a strong start in 1982 with First Blood, the only Rambo movie rated Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. For better or for worse, the ensuing sequels prioritized graphic, high-octane action, although 2019’s Rambo: Last Blood made at least some effort to integrate meaningful character development.
The character development seen in Rambo: Last Blood also came with some heavy implications for the titular Vietnam War vet, but there are other reasons why Sylvester Stallone’s prequel idea would be much better than making Rambo 6. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said, “I wanted to do [a Rambo prequel] like a Ken Burns documentary on Vietnam, where you drop young Rambo in there, and he’s this outgoing guy, football captain, and then you see why he becomes Rambo.” Stallone has the right idea: a prequel exploring John Rambo’s tragic backstory would return the character to his grounded roots and build on the legacy of the well-regarded first movie.
