Nothing is over! Nothing! And as the recently released trailer for Rambo: Last Blood proves, that certainly applies to this franchise. But before the latest installment hits theaters this fall, we decided to go all the way back to where it all began.
This original film is now strangely the outlier in this franchise - a relatively grounded and character-driven story that actually has something pretty compelling to say. If you've never seen it, you might be surprised how dramatically First Blood flies in the face of most people's preconceived notions about this series.
Topics include: the major differences between the film and the novel that it's based on, the legendary actor who was cast as Trautman and why he walked off the set, the drastically different endings that were considered, the original three hour long cut, how the sequels shifted everyone's perceptions of this character, Rambo's Saturday morning cartoon, and much more!
