Michael B. Jordan in Creed
Warner Bros. / MGM
Here comes the first trailer for Creed and if anyone has proven an ability to keep his old characters alive on the big screen it’s Sylvester Stallone. Despite a slip up such as Rocky V, Rocky Balboa was a worthy addition to the franchise and I thought Rambo was immensely entertaining for what it was and set out to be. So, to see him bringing Rocky Balboa back to the big screen yet again in Creed is something I’m on board for, especially given the talent he’s working with.
Directing the movie is Fruitvale Station (amazing movie if you haven’t seen it yet) helmer Ryan Coogler (who co-wrote the film with Aaron Covington) and cast in the lead role is Coogler’s Fruitvale star, Michael B. Jordan, playing Adonis Johnson, son to Carl Weather‘s famous Apollo Creed, with an eye to follow in his father’s footsteps. Here’s the synopsis:
Along with Jordan and Stallone, the film co-stars Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad and Anthony Bellew and is set to hit theaters on Nov. 25, check out the first trailer below.
