MGM and Warner Bros. Pictures have just released the first trailer for Creed II starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone and it looks pretty hectic.
Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone are reprising their roles of Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa and in this continuation of the Rocky saga and sequel to the 2015 hit Creed, Ryan Coogler – the director of the first film, returns to the franchise as an executive producer.
Here’s the synopsis of the movie according to Coming Soon: “Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”
