The inevitable fight of the century between Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) and Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) is rapidly approaching, when Creed II hits theaters this November. Last month, we witnessed a sneak peek of the action, when MGM and Warner Bros. unleashed an incredible trailer! Now, they’ve decided to share a little more detail about what Creed II is about, with the official synopsis…
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.
In addition to this synopsis, MGM & WB revealed a couple of new screenshots that show the young Creed seemingly preparing for his toughest battle yet.
Creed II, directed by Steven Caple Jr., releases November 21, 2018, starring Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad, Dolph Lundgren.
For old time sake, let’s watch that trailer, one more time!
