*UPDATE: Here’s the second trailer, which premiered yesterday (September 14). Men of a certain age are gonna be needing some Kleenex. Big shout out and congratulations to Big K.R.I.T., whose song “Life” made it into this trailer!*
Michael B. Jordan signed onto play Apollo Creed’s son in a new Rocky spinoff movie a while ago, and now we finally have our first look at the young blood in action.
This first trailer for the film, directed and co-written by Fruitvale Station‘s Ryan Coogler, lays out the basics of the story. Adonis Creed (Jordan) is training to become a boxer in Philadelphia and doing it all on his own, since his legendary father, played by Carl Weathers, died when he was very young. He comes across Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), who offers to help train him. Like I said, this trailer is all about basics and hints of what’s to come, including a relationship between Adonis and Bianca (Tessa Thompson).
Creed is coming to theaters this November. Get hype with the trailer above.
