‘Creed II’ is Going Full ‘Rocky IV’ in New Trailer

There’s a part of me that thinks ‘Creed‘ will go down as one of the most important films of the 21st Century. When we look back on Ryan Coogler’s career filled with Oscar Winner’s and Blockbuster’s, we will acknowledge that it was ‘Creed‘ that first brought his name into the mainstream. A similar statement could also be made about Michael B. Jordan and when he became movie star. Thanksgiving 2018 is going to bring the next installment in Adonis Creed’s life to theaters. Based on this new trailer, it seems it might not hit the emotional highs that the 2015 film did. It appears to be a hell of a sequel though. Watch the trailer below and get ready to go run some steps.

This thing will be great. It seems to be combing aspects of both the great Rocky sequels in the new film. We see Donny with a new baby trying to adjust to life as champ like Rocky III. We see training away in Mexico with no glitz or glamour like Balboa does in Rocky IV. There’s also the added benefits of Jordan’s incredible performance of a son who wants desperately to live up his father’s legacy. The only thing missing in this trailer is Kendrick Lamar’s DNA. Which, honestly, would make all trailer better.

Ryan Coogler will sadly not be back for the sequel. Instead he will be replaced by relative newcomer Steven Craple Jr. Michael B Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson and the rest of the cast from the first will all return. They will be joined by Florian Munteanu as Viktor Drago and Dolph Lundgren and Brigitte Nielsen reprising their roles from ‘Rocky IV’. Warner Bros also released the poster for ‘Creed II’ and it looks incredible. November 21 cannot get here soon enough.
