Rocky II

Trivia: An estimated 800 children from a local school were used as extras for the scene in which Rocky runs through Philadelphia.

Trivia: The smaller quicker fighter that Rocky is sparring with before the fight is real life champion Roberto Duran.

Trivia: Robert Balboa Jr. in the film is Sylvester Stallone's real-life son, Seargeoh.

Trivia: During preparation the film, Sylvester Stallone was doing bench-pressing when the weight fell and tore his right pectoral muscle. The incident happened before the fight scene was to be filmed and the scene was shot with Stallone still suffering from his injury.

Continuity mistake: When Apollo Creed is approaching the ring for the rematch at the end of the film, his robe starts off done-up, next shot shows it undone and the towel around his neck loose, and then in the last shot it's back to being neat again with the robe done up. Even when he enters the ring it's all neat and tidy. (01:32:40)
