The original theatrical release, which appeared exactly 36 years ago to the day, ran 92 minutes.
According to Polygon, Stallone added 42 minutes to the new Director’s Cut, but the total running time is 93 minutes, so it’s assumed that roughly half of the movie is different.

On Instagram he said: “For the 35th anniversary, Rocky 4 is getting a new DIRECTORS cut from me. So far it looks great. Soulful .. Thank you MGM for this entertainment opportunity. “
