Michael B. Jordan in Creed 2

Creed 2 Trailer #1 (2018) *Bring on the Dragos!!!*

Creed II is the continuation of the Rocky saga and sequel to the 2015 critically-acclaimed and crowd-pleasing 2015 hit Creed, which took in more than $170 million at the worldwide box office. Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), who directed the first film, returns to the franchise as an executive producer on Creed II. The new film is being directed by Steven Caple Jr., who helmed the acclaimed 2016 drama The Land.

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.

Also reprising their roles from the first film are Tessa Thompson as Bianca, Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne, Wood Harris as Tony ‘Little Duke’ Burton, and Andre Ward as Danny ‘Stuntman’ Wheeler. The new cast is rounded out with Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu as Viktor Drago, Dolph Lundgren returning to the role of Ivan Drago and Russell Hornsby as Buddy Marcelle. Creed II will be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by MGM on November 21, 2018, and Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film internationally.

  1. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the first Creed wasn’t bad!

    Some people forget how good the first Rocky was.

    The first Rambo movie, First Blood, is really good too.

    And I love Copland.

    When Stallone is in a smaller movie, playing an actual human being, he sometimes is able to shine. I love his role in these new films. The myth lives on!

    1. The first Creed was frigging great. The MCU pretty much stole the entire cast and production team. The only real downside of Ryan Coogler doing Black Panther was that he couldn’t direct Creed 2, but hopefully, since he and Stallone did the screenplay it’s as strong as the first film. They certainly have a great villain set-up. Son of Creed vs. Son of Drago! This is a sequel I actually am looking forward to watching.

      1. Well, all I can say is that in this age of reboots and brand extensions, the first Creed was the way to do it. Seriously.

        I’m skeptical of the sequel. Much like that conreesswoman who grilled Jack Ryan in Clear and Present Danger, long experience has taught me to be wary.

        It’s amazing to me that more MCU-like shared universes have not been dreamt up by now, because traditional franchises are so hard to make work by comparison. Hollywood ought to be coming up with franchises held together by looser strings, that can go more places from film to film.
