2 Years ago Creed was released when the son of Rocky Balboa one time opponent come to friend Apollo Creed came to Rocky to train him to box. Later this year in Creed 2 Adonis (Michael B Jordan) will return to the ring once again under Rocky’s guidance as a demon from their past returns…Ivan Drago!
Dolph Lundgren returns but this time he has his own son Vitor Drago (Florian Munteanu) under his wing. In Rocky III Ivan Drago killed Adonis father in the ring now the sons will become ‘foes’.
As you’ll see Rocky gives Adonis some serious advice this his gave him “You’ve got people that need you now. You’ve got everything to lose …this guy’s got nothing to lose,”. He gets the expected reply…”That’s the same thing your father said, and he died right here in my hands.”
Since the first film, Ryan Coogler has directed Marvel’s, Black Panther and has now passed the baton for this film to Steven Caple Jr. He is onboard as a producer and Caple Jr. looks to follow the tone of the first film which gives this one feels a natural progression.
Can Adonis gain revenge for his fathers’ death? We’re promised a film that faces the challenges young people face today. Check out the first UK Trailer from Warner Bros. Pictures…
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.
The film also stars Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, Andre Ward, and Russell Hornsby.
Creed 2 will be released in the UK and Ireland on 30th November (21st November in the USA).
