The fight of the century will be in our cinema in four weeks time when Michael B.Jordan returns for round two with Creed II. Like it’s lead star, Warner Bros Pictures are pumped up and today share 2 new featurettes.
Sins Of Our Fathers Featurette we finally get to see Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) and Rocky Balboa (Stallone) come face to face. The promo is all about how Rocky must face his past and Adonis Creed must avenge his father’s death. Forgetting he’s now a father himself, revenge takes a grip of him.
In the second featurette, ‘New Direction’ is all about making the film defeating that ‘ sequel hurdles’ and deliver a film worthy of that second film. Now that both Rocky and Adonis paths crossing once again, this time Rocky fears that path even more.
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.
Creed 2 stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, Andre Ward, Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu, Dolph Lundgren, Russell Hornsby.
The film arrives in the UK and Ireland from 30th November with the U.S.A release on 21st November.
