RELEASE DATE


In the first trailer for Creed II has dropped, and Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed alongside uncle Rocky Balboa played by Sylvester Stallone, yes, making it his eight go-round in the franchise. This time, Creed's new opponent is a blast from his coach Rocky's past. He will face off with fellow legacy fighter Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Drago, the villain of Rocky IV, played by Dolph Lundgren.


I want to rewrite history.

The official synopsis from Warner Bros. Pictures reads as followed:"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 familys 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 whats worth fighting for, and discover that nothings 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 cant escape your history."
