It has been four decades since the release of Rocky, one of the most notable sports films in the history of cinema. The film has aged well and remains a classic that has inspired many other boxing films over the years.

As an ode to the film, a documentary titled 40 Years of Rocky - The Birth Of A Classic has been directed by Derek Wayne Johnson. The film is set to premiere digitally on June 9.

Sylvester Stallone has narrated the documentary, which will be a treat for both ardent fans of the Rocky franchise and anyone who has watched the original film. It will document the making of Rocky and will include some rare footage by the director of the film, John G Avildsen.

Rocky is about Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer who takes on a heavyweight named Creed. The film appeased both critics and audience, and bagged three Oscars at the 49th Academy Awards. So far, five sequels to Rocky have been made with the last one being Creed II (2019).
