Creed star Michael B Jordan has revealed a new poster for sequel Creed II teasing ‘the fight of the Century’ when it drops in cinemas later next month. The poster sees Adonis Creed facing off against Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), as well as Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) facing off against old rival Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren).
This marks the eight instalment in the franchise and is set to be an emotional one as Adonis will face the son of the man who killed his father, it’s definitely going to be one dangerous grudge match! Especially as Adonis has become a father himself to a son since the first Creed film.
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.
Creed II is directed by Steven Caple Jr. and 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 is set for release on the 21st November.
