The second trailer has recently dropped for the seventh chapter of the Rocky saga, ‘Creed’. The film stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic Rocky role and also reunites Coogler with his ‘Fruitvale Station’ star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.
Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.
The second trailer for ‘Creed’ shines a spotlight on Rocky Balboa, the now retired former World Heavyweight Champion. Rocky picks up Adonis Creed, son of his late rival and friend from a police station, developing into numerous scenes in the ring, in the boxing club, a graveyard and a hospital while both male leads voice their brief yet intense exchange of dialogues.
This will be the first film in the Rocky series not written by Sylvester Stallone but instead by the director Ryan Coogler and it will also be the first film where Rocky Balboa (Stallone) will not be fighting but rather assuming the role of Creed’s mentor.
