In 1976, Stallone started an unexpected phenomenon, the first of the Rocky franchise. The award winning film led to five sequels including the rematch with Apollo Creed, a fight with Mr. T, the greatest workout montage of all time, a less enjoyable fifth film, and then a surprisingly solid and deep sixth. Rocky returns for a seventh time but not in the ring. Instead, the Italian Stallion takes on the role of teacher to train a new, young fighter. But this isn’t just any boxer. Michael B. Jordan plays the role of Adonis Johnson. Sure, the name doesn’t sound familiar but his father knew a thing or two about fighting toe-to-toe with Rocky.
The first trailer for Creed dropped. Check it out below and see our first look at the son of Apollo Creed. After watching the trailer, comment below with your thoughts and expectations for the seventh Rocky universe film.
Oh, and don’t forget. “It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
