Creed II Trailer Starring Michael B. Jordan


At long last the first trailer for Creed II is here, the follow up to Ryan Coogler’s rock solid 2015 revitalization of the Rocky franchise. Coogler himself is not back in the director’s chair, but Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone reprise their roles as Adonis Johnson and Rocky Balboa respectively while Tessa Thompson is also back as Bianca. This time Adonis is retracing his father’s footsteps and faces the toughest fight of his life against Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, who killed Apollo Creed at the beginning of Rocky IV. We don’t get to see much of his opponent other than the Drago name in this trailer, but it certainly feels suitably dramatic. Directed by Steven Caple Jr. (The Land), Creed II hits theatres on Nov. 21st; check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Looks very good, though I’m sweating it won’t be as great as the first Creed. Seeing Sly mooing in the graveyard is wonderful. Reminds us all that the Rocky story is the great contemporary story about death. We need a hefty death in this one, probably Rocky himself.

    It looks good to me, following Creed will be tough but this franchise tends to deliver

  • Henrik

    LOVED Creed, and really liked this trailer. I thought the name reveal was excellent, even if it does feel more lightweight (duh) and franchiserific than Creed ever did. Stallone is addicted to movies for sure… Michael B. Jordan is awesome.

    Why will it be tough?

    I just mean in terms of Creed possibly being the best out of all of them so I think it’ll be tough to match
