HEY YO! Get ready to throw on your gray sweats, drink some raw eggs, catch a chicken with your bare hands and sprint through the streets of your town! Why? Because the first trailer for Creed is HERE! Creed stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone.
In the very first and second Rocky movies, Apollo was the nemesis of Rocky Balboa. However they began to respect each other and became friends in Rocky III and through Rocky IV, where Apollo dies in the ring at the fists of Ivan Drago.
Jordan plays Adonis, who is the son of Apollo Creed. He travels to Philly to seek training and eventually tracks down Rocky in a Italian restaurant that he owns. (if you’ve seen the movie Rocky Balboa – that’s where you’ve probably seen it before!)
Creed is directed by Ryan Coogler(Fruitvale Station), Stallone also serves as producer. Creed steps into the ring Nov. 25.
I’m have to say, i’m very pumped for this movie! I am a huge fan of the original Rocky series. The movies themselves definitely speak to us on some level. They are feel good movies about an underdog who overcomes the impossible by putting in the hard work and meeting someone who means the world to him and ultimately giving his life some meaning. I’m sure this movie will capture the same magic that the other films in the past have. So do yourself a favor and make sure to watch the trailer above, because Mickey loves ya!
