Hot off the press from MGM Pictures and Warner Bros. Studios, the first official images of Creed II have arrived and Junior looks like he means business as he prepares for the fight of his life against Viktor Drago. You know, the son of that scary as hell Russian that killed his father back in 1985.
Vengence at its finest my friends.
Directed by Stephen Caple Jr., the immortal Rocky saga continues with Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) stepping into the focal role with, of course, the legendary Italian Stallion, Rocky Balboa at his side to guide him through the squared circle along with the brakes of life.
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.
