The story of Adonis Creed, the seed of Apollo Creed, is coming. And we’re here for it. Check out the newest trailer for Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan, that has us sweating out last night’s alcohol…
Michael B. Jordan is headed back to the big screen November after the flop that was Fantastic Four, and there’s no way this flick can be a flop. The powerful story of a son attempting to fill his late father’s shoes will be front and center this Thanksgiving, and so will Michael Bae’s B.’s biceps. Yasss.
The story involves Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) taking his former biggest rival-turned-best friend Apollo’s son, Adonis, into a serious fighter. Michael’s on-screen love interest is played by Tessa Thompson while his on-screen mother (who is NOT here for her son putting himself in harm’s way) is played Phylicia Rashad. So this will be all types of good.
Check out the official synopsis and the powerful new trailer below:
Drama. Adonis Johnson (Michael B.Jordan) never knew his famous father,world heavy weight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring. With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?
CREED releases nationwide November 25th.
