In the latest TV spot for "Creed," Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordon) must prove himself to be as special as his father Apollo Creed so Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) will help him train to become a boxer. In addition to the trailer, Warner Bros. also released a new poster featuring Stallone motivating Jordan.
Directed by Ryan Coogler (“Fruitvale Station”), the drama stars Jordan as Adonis Johnson, whose father, heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, died before he was born. With boxing in his blood, Adonis travels to Philadelphia to track down Rocky Balboa (Stallone) to train him to be a fighter. Despite his insistence that he’s out of the fighting game, Rocky recognizes in Adonis the same strength and determination he knew in Apollo, and agrees to train the young boxer, even as the former champion battles an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.
Opening Nov. 25, “Creed” also stars Phylicia Rashad as Apollo’s widow, Tessa Thompson Adonis’ love interest and real-life boxer Anthony Bellew as “Pretty” Ricky Conlan.
