Many were surprised by just how good Creed was, bringing new life to the Rocky franchise and ensuring a sequel was quickly put in the works. That follow-up is now on its way, and you can take a look at the first trailer and poster below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, and Phylicia Rashad star, with Stallone once more writing the script and Steven Caple Jr. directing. It’ll be in cinemas at the end of November.
