Sylvester Stallone has a message

The “Rocky” kickoff will commence today at 4pm PT, and stream live on the MGM Studios’ Facebook Page.

Over the last several weeks, movie stars, Hollywood directors, singers and entertainment professionals across the industry have been doing what they can to provide a timeout for people isolating at home through different online initiatives.

Actress Zoe Saldana shared her phone number with her fans on Instagram and started a community group chat, where people could connect with her and share their experiences from the lockdown - providing positive inspiration for people stuck at home.

James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan also recently hosted a watchalong with Esquire UK, providing live commentary on 1995 classic “Goldeneye,” sharing his memories of the film shoot from his home.

And over the past several weeks a host of stars from Jimmy Kimmel through to Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez have been hosting live Zoom calls and Instagram interviews on a range of topics from films to mental health.
