Michael B Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, as does Sylvester Stallone as his mentor Rocky Balboa, in this follow-up to the 2015 boxing drama that sees a new – but familiar – opponent. Stallone co-wrote the script with Luke Cage writer Cheo Hodari Coker. The previous film’s director, Ryan Coogler, passes the chair to Steven Caple Jr (The Land).
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.
Also starring Tessa Thompson, Florian Munteanu, Dolph Lundgren, Wood Harris and Phylicia Rashad.
