A Heart-Pounding New CREED II Trailer Has Dropped and It's Powerful
We’ve got a new trailer for Creed II for you to watch and this one is sure to get you pumped up for the movie! It’s seriously an emotional and powerful trailer. In this next chapter of the story Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) and Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) will face Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) and his son Viktor (Florian Munteanu). I just have to say that Viktor looks even scarier than his dad did in Rocky IV!
As you know, Adonis’ dad Apollo was killed by Drago in Rocky IV, and while you may think this is a revenge film, Jordan would have to disagree with you. He told the Toronto Sun the this is a film “about life.” He goes on to talk about the similarities between Viktor and Adonis saying:
“Viktor’s storyline is very layered. The two guys are similar in a lot of ways. … Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes ‘Creed’ so special. It’s not just about revenge. It’s about a lot of things. … If we get that lesson across, then I think we’ve made a pretty special movie.”
Here’s the synopsis:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). 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 (Sylvester Stallone) 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.
The movie also stars Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, and Andre Ward. You can check out the trailer for the film again below if you want. The movie is set to be released on November 21st! I also included a new poster below the trailer that’s full of emotion.
