Watch Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone in the First Trailer for Rocky Spinoff Creed

4 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So. Many. Chills.  The first trailer for upcoming Rocky spinoff Creed just debuted and it's nothing short of intense. Scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 25, Creed stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) former enemy in the octagon, Apollo Creed. Though Apollo died before Jordan's character was born, boxing runs through his blood, leaving him no choice but to seek out Stallone as a potential trainer.  "I've been fighting my whole life. It's not a choice for me," the Fantastic Four star explains in the trailer. "Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own." It's not until Stallone finds Jordan »

Watch: Michael B. Jordan Muscles Up in Trailer for Rocky Spinoff 'Creed'

7 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Ryan Coogler's Sundance and Cannes winner "Fruitvale Station" hit theaters in July, MGM quickly scooped up the maverick indie to write and direct this seventh film in the "Rocky" series, co-penned by Aaron Covington. How will Coogler fare on a big-budget Hollywood canvas? We shall see when Warner Bros. opens "Creed" on the awards (and family) friendly date of November 25. "Creed" takes the original Apollo Creed/Rocky Balboa story and follows Adonis Creed (a ripped Michael B. Jordan), the son of world heavyweight champ Apollo, trying to make his way in Philadelphia. He turns to Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), his father's close friend and fierce rival, for help and mentorship. Judging from footage in CinemaCon and the trailer below, it looks gritty and terrific. "It's not 'Rocky 7,'" Stallone told exhibitors. Tessa Thompson and real-life boxers Tony Bellew and Andrew Ward round out the »

First 'Creed' Trailer Shows Rocky Still Packs a Punch

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Creed" is already a hit online, but will it be a knockout in theaters this November? The movie's tagline is "Your legacy is more than a name," but the names Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed, and Michael B. Jordan are selling this latest entry into the "Rocky" franchise.

The first official "Creed" trailer dropped last night and it already has more than 1,025,000 YouTube views. Jordan stars as the son of Apollo Creed, who heads to Philadelphia to track down his late father's legendary rival-turned-friend, Rocky Balboa, to ask him to be his own trainer.

Here's the 2 minute, 43 second trailer. It doesn't even reveal Stallone until the halfway point, emphasizing that this isn't his story.

"Creed" is directed by Ryan Coogler, who knocked it out of the park (more sports metaphors!) with Michael B. Jordan in "Fruitvale Station." "Creed" co-stars Phylicia Rashad, Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew, Wood Harris ("The Wire" reunion! »

Creed: first trailer for the Rocky spin-off

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's a sort of Rocky 7, as Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone star in Creed. Here's the trailer...

Heading into cinemas at the end of the year is the sort-of continuation of the Rocky Balboa movie saga, Creed. In this one, the focus is on Michael B Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed, going by the name of Adonis Johnson.

Adonis never had a chance to meet his father, although if he digs out a disc of Rocky IV then he gets to see the former heavyweight boxing champion of the world turned into mincemeat by the priceless Ivan Drago. Whether he watched his Rocky boxset or not, Adonis has the boxing bug, and convinces Rocky Balboa himself - that'd be the returning Sylvester Stallone - to be his trainer. Thus, it seems we're back adhering to the Rocky template.

Ryan Coogler is directing this one, from a script he penned with Aaron Covington, »

It’s been almost 40 years since Sylvester Stallone ascended that staircase, drenched in sweat, and proved his love for Adriannnnnnn by gaining the respect of an audience full of doubters and going the distance with Apollo Creed in “Rocky.” Which means, it’s definitely time for Sly to pass on the old gloves and let somebody new emerge as the hometown hero who defies all crowd expectations. Enter the late Apollo’s own son, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), who’s been taping up and sparring with walls for years just to get a taste of the sport that runs in his very veins, thanks to the father he never got to know. And he ne . »

It is still one of the greatest Best Picture wins in Academy history!

In addition to the series of films, there was also a Broadway musical – Rocky Broadway.

‘Creed’ Trailer – The next-level of the Rocky legacy is here

20 hours ago | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The trailer for Creed – the next chapter in the Rocky saga – has finally hit the internet. The movie focuses on Apollo’s son, Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), with Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa.

There are many reason’s why I like this trailer. First of all, it doesn’t spoil the entire subtext of the movie in the trailer. You can watch it and still be a little curious as to the story.

Sure, we know it’s going to follow a lot of themes established in previous iterations of the franchise. However, it feels like a fresh start. As a viewer, you want to know why Adonis seeks out Rocky. And, the acting genuinely looks good. There are few over-sensationalized moments, which is a rarity in this era of explosive-big-budget-superhero movies.

With all of these journeys into space and dino-drama, it’s great to see »

Lots of big movies these days want to revisit a classic franchise, taking elements from the older films, twisting storylines, adding in fancy effects tricks and recasting to ensure actors in case a new series is ignited. But Creed – which stars Michael B. Jordan – is ready to instead revitalise the Rocky movies with some appropriate new blood. Take a look at the first trailer for the film. Creed, shot by Jordan’s Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, finds the actor as Adonis Johnson, a driven young fighter who despite the boxing ability pulsing through his veins, never knew his father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died in the ring before he was born.But while he’s not so eager to embrace connections to his father, he knows he needs a good trainer, so he heads to Philadelphia to find one of Apollo’s most famous opponents: Rocky Balboa »
