New Synopsis For "Creed" Spin-Off

16 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first official synopsis for the "Rocky" film series spinoff "Creed". Interestingly the plotline teases that Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa might be facing a different kind of fight. Here's the synopsis:

"Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa (Stallone).

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo-the fierce rival who became his closest friend.

Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even »

A new, official plot synopsis has now been published, revealing the broad strokes.

Adonis Johnson never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Plot Synopsis For Creed Hints At A New Adversary For Rocky

25 February 2015 3:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler is rebooting the Rocky franchise with this year’s Creed. Starring his Fruitvale lead Michael Jordan, Coogler’s film will pay homage to the original series while striking out on its own. This time around, Sylvester Stallone’s boxer appears in a supporting role with Jordan nabbing the spotlight as Apollo Creed’s son, Adonis.

In terms of story, we know that Adonis will seek out his father’s greatest opponent, Rocky, to help train him in the sport that runs through his veins. Aside from a few casting announcements, that’s been it so far. Now, thanks to a lengthy synopsis unearthed by Badass Digest (via /Film), it seems that Balboa himself could be in for another battle of his own:

‘Creed’ Synopsis Says Rocky Balboa Has His Own Battle in the New Film

25 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Creed sounds like a great way to structure a new chapter in the very long-running Rocky saga. For this film, Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky, but he’s not the central figure. Rather, Rocky is working as trainer to Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan, above), the son of his old rival Apollo Creed. In other words, […]

This Was the Best Oscars Show in Years (But It Was Still Terrible)

23 February 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How odd that 12 hours after it’s over, I’m thinking of Michael Keaton, looking as if he has been stripped down to the raw nerve, trying to make sense of this odyssey that brought him back and brought him to the peak — where he couldn’t bear to admit he wanted to be until his director pushed him towards the microphone. Always an unnerving moment. Almost four decades ago, Sylvester Stallone, the center of Rocky, had lost his Best Actor prize to a dead man and his screenwriting prize to an even bigger grandstander, Paddy Chayefsky, but was pulled onstage as his movie — his golden ticket — won Best Picture, and Stallone leaned into the microphone and said, “Wait until next year.” Keaton, a much more conflicted talent, could never be so open. Someone who worked for him (and liked him) once told me that when he was at the »

19 February 2015 7:35 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s It's an oft-echoed sentiment that movies are made in the cutting room, so the Academy Award for Best Film Editing is a cherished trophy indeed.

Kress, “How the West Was Won” 1964: Cotton Warburton, “Mary Poppins” 1965: William Reynolds, “The Sound of Music” 1968: Frank P. Keller, “Bullitt” 1970: Hugh S.

DVD Review – Collection (2015)

9 February 2015 2:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Collection, 2015.

Directed by John Herzfeld.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Thomas Jane, Danny Aiello, Lauren CohanKyra Sedgwick, Danny Trejo, Tom Sizemore, Nelly, Kevin Connolly, David O’Hara, Kelsey Grammer, Tom Berenger, Terry Crews, Cary Elwes, Frank Stallone, Elizabeth Henstridge.

Synopsis:

A motivational book written by a mystery author inspires a cross-section of different people to re-evaluate their lives.

When a film boasts as much screen talent as Collection does then it’s pretty hard to see how it could fail. The trouble is that having names such as Stallone, Trejo, Berenger, Aiello et al in your film doesn’t mean a thing unless you’ve got the material for them to go to work with, and Collection is a film that is in desperate need for something – anything – to justify having so many big name actors on board.

A lightweight plot about a motivational book called ‘Reach Me’ (the original, and better, »

Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing.
