LOS ANGELES — “I must break you.” Concocting a living inside the boxing ring has morphed into a convoluted balancing act for Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), son of slain heavyweight Apollo Creed. Between managing personal responsibilities, accumulating nookie and meeting the lofty expectations that come with carrying his father’s surname, newly crowned Adonis is now tasked with facing Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) — the seed of Soviet juggernaut Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) — in Steven Caple’s new film “Creed II.”

Complicating matters are the eerie family ties that exist. Ivan, if you recall, killed Apollo during an exhibition bout three decades ago. The steroid-induced Russian beat the sh*t out of that hubristic Negro. After the fight, Ivan glared at Apollo’s bloodied cadaver then uttered “if he dies, he dies” on national television.

Now it’s Adonis’ turn to flip the script by avenging daddy’s quietus. Like the first film, Adonis garners ample tutelage from boxing great Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).

Yes, that Rocky.

The Italian Stallion.

Sly, believe it or not, is a big fan of Michael B. He believes the 31-year-old thespian is the perfect fit to fill Creed’s size 13 boxing shoes. “Michael Jordan is an extraordinary athlete,” Stallone said. “He has those skills that very, very few actors have… I mean, he literally became a specimen to be reckoned with.”

Again, Rocky will teach Adonis a few old tricks.

But will it be enough?

“Creed II” hits theaters November 21st.

Be there or be square!

  1. ummmm I wonder who wins the fight. It’s amazing how the same film, with the same story line, can be made so often.

  2. Rocky has become to Adonis what Mickey was to him.

  3. Randall Ramirez

    Drago Vs The human torch!

  4. DRAGO!? 😳😳

  5. I’m predicting it, there will be two fights. Creed loses the first one and wins the rematch. At the start creed is using red gloves and the end in using black gloves.

  6. In my mind before the film:
    Drago’s son is only fighting Adonis to prove to his father, Ivan, that he’s not a failure. Something like Adonis went through in the the 1st Creed film.

  7. I can’t wait! I showed my son rocky4 and he loves it and knows this is one of my favorite movies ever! We are there 1st day!

  8. I am beyond excited ! 👍👍👍🙋🙋🥊🥊

  9. Apollo son would have been in his 40’s. Only thing that throws the whole thing off. The boy was like 5 in 1978 they show him and his sister running through the kitchen. IJS…

  10. If he dies….he dies

  11. Rocky movies will never end.

  12. “You killed my father, and I dont like that sort of thing”

  13. Adonis Johnson Creed is very much like his daddy Apollo Creed besides having his daddy’s anger Adonis believes he has to be a boxer even though he has a choice not to just like his daddy and it really surprised me that in Creed II (2018) Adonis is going to fight Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, who killed his daddy in the ring 33 years ago.

  14. This is the movie of 2018 I have been a Rocky fan since the 70’es

  15. So his trainer was Rocky Balboa…no wonder he could beat T’Challa and take over Wakanda

  16. Seeing Rocky and Ivan face to face again after 33 years is the epitome of epic!

  17. Vardas Pavarde

    I like how this movie is called CREED II but to real fans this will still be Rocky 8

  18. Just watched the first Creed, the Rocky movies were huge when i was growin up so to me this was epic. I expect Creed 2 ta be just as good, if not better.

  19. Jayden Banuelos

    Creed vs Drago here we go

  20. Just what we need; another gruesome, horrific, repugnant, grisly, ghastly, lurid, horrendous horror story straight from fantasyland about the sport of all sports!

  21. Bruno TheGreatSwimmer

    Michael B Jordan is just awesome

  22. Love Rocky and love Sly, but I’m gonna pass on this one.

  23. I hope there will be a creed 3 movie after this one, starring clubber Lang’s kid.

    “Hey fool, your ready for another beating, you should’ve never came back”
    “Hey boy…hey boy, I’m gonna crucify him, you’re next! “

  24. if this doesnt get you hyped…i dont know what will

  25. For those who don’t know what this movie is about, you need to go back to “ROCKY” watch ALL the movies and TAADAAAAAAA….. Sit back and enjoy Creed II

  26. He have to beat drago for what happened to his father. If he dies he dies I guess all that music that was being played he didn’t like that and beat the shit outta him.

  27. This is gonna be 🔥 can’t wait to see this.

  28. Looks like Michael B will lose the first fight badly, than win the rematch maybe idk this movie looks unpredictable( one thing rocky couldn’t do imo)
