Three decades after the legendary Apollo Creed was mercilessly killed in a fight against Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, it's time for a rematch.
In the teaser trailer for Creed II, Apollo's son Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) heads back into the ring, against the advice of his trainer and mentor Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) to "rewrite history," to square off against another Drago.
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.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr. from a script written by Sylvester Stallone and Cheo Hodari Coker, Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad and Dolph Lundgren. The film arrives Nov. 21.
