Creed: Trailer for Rocky spinoff with Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone released
Throw on the gray sweats, pack up your boxing gloves, and sprint through the streets: We’re going back to Philadelphia. The first trailer for Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, was released Tuesday.
Jordan plays Adonis, the son of Apollo Creed, Rocky Balboa’s nemesis in Rocky and Rocky II, but friend in Rocky III and Rocky IV before his death by the fists of Ivan Drago. Adonis travels to Philly to seek training, eventually tracking down Rocky in what looks like an Italian restaurant he operates. (The Wire fans can geek out at the first line of dialogue between Jordan and another ex-Baltimore resident.)
Creed is directed by Ryan Coogler, who also directed Jordan in Fruitvale Station; Stallone also serves as producer. The MGM film is due in theaters Nov. 25. Watch the trailer above.
