Sweet Trailer…Rocky Spin-off ‘Creed’

Creed 2015 BannerWe haven’t posted many trailers lately (being new Dad takes a lot of time) but this one I had to jump on. The upcoming Rocky spin-off, Creed, will follow the story of Adonis Creed, son of former heavyweight champion Apollo. Michael B. Jordan stars as the titular lead, and, you guessed it, he will seek out the one and only Rocky Balboa to be his trainer. Yet, after looking at the trailer, it’s not that simple of a story, nor will it be as hollow as it sounds. After all, this is written and by Ryan Coogler who made waves with Fruitvale Station. It’s gotta be better than Grudge Match, right? Enjoy the first trailer below…

The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Creed, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.

The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Graham McTavish Tessa Thompson, and Phylicia Rashad. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release Creed this Fall on November 25, 2015.
