Rocky III was released to theaters on May 28, 1982. I remember going to see it with my dad when I was 11 years old, and it was one of the most exciting movies I had ever seen. On a budget of only $17 million, it grossed over $270 million worldwide. It was the fourth highest grossing film of 1982, and the theme song, Eye of the Tiger by Survivor was a huge hit on the charts and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song.
