Three years ago, Rocky Balboa returned to the big screen in one of that year’s best films.
Creed focused on Adonis Creed, the son of the late Apollo Creed, and his ambition to become a boxing legend himself. Played by Michael B. Jordan, the character recruited Rocky — his father’s one-time nemesis — to train for an upcoming fight. The brilliant Ryan Coogler production earned critical acclaim and Sylvester Stallone earned an Oscar nomination for his supporting turn.
Creed and Rocky are uniting once again for Creed 2.
The film’s trailer was just released and shows Creed teaming up with Rocky once again and returning to the ring.
The feature’s official synopsis is below:
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.
