Year 1982

Since its release, First Blood has been a critical and commercial success, and has had a lasting influence on the genre. It has also spurred countless parodies.

Not only the film but also the poster artwork. Drew’s envisioning Stallone (Rambo) as "the" iconic figure was not only a success but spurred countless immitations of the “hero with big gun” through the years.
