MGM and Warner Bros, have released the first official trailer and poster for Michael B. Jordan‘s Creed II. The film is the highly anticipated sequel to Creed and reunites Jordan with film icon Sylvester Stallone.
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 also stars Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad and Dolph Lundgren.
The film was written by Stallone and directed by Steven Caple Jr. It is executive produced by Jordan plus Ryan Coogler and Guy Riedel.
