From Crust To ‘Creed’ – Stallone Delivers Michael B. Jordan Sucker Punch

15 April 2015 4:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Viewers in the UK who woke up thinking “Did I really see Sylvester Stallone in an ad for Warburtons bread last night?” may be reassured to know Sly is still working the day job. His Instagram account has played host to a production still of him in action with Michael B. Jordan for upcoming Rocky spin-off Creed. Here’s the pic:

The plot sees Jordan as the son – named Adonis! – of Carl Weathers’ legendary opponent track down his late father’s old sparring partner Rocky Balboa (Stallone) so he can be trained up as slugger par excellence. As you may remember Weathers exited the franchise during part IV back in the mid-Eighties, when a fledgling Dolph Lundgren beat him to a fatal pulp.

Ryan Coogler is directing from his and Aaron Covington’s script. Stallone is also back on production duties with Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff. The movie is set for release in November. »

Sylvester Stallone Shows Up In A New Creed Image

14 April 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There have been a couple of pictures out in the world from Ryan Coogler’s Rocky spin-off Creed, but this must be considered the... um... money shot? Point your eyes towards the image above of Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan training in the boxing ring.Written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, Creed follows the exploits of Adonis Creed (Jordan), the grandson of Apollo, who met a bloody, fist-driven death at the hands of Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. While Adonis never knew his grandfather, he feels the fire of the boxer coursing through his veins and heads to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky Balboa (Stallone).Hoping that Rocky will train him, Adonis battles through the older fighter’s insistence that he’s out of the game, and Rocky sees the strength and determination of his fierce rival and, later, closet friend in the young man. Reluctantly agreeing to help him out, »

Sylvester Stallone Shared This Action Photo with Michael B. Jordan in the Ring for Their 'Rocky' Spin-Off

14 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan re-team for boxing drama "Creed," after winning much acclaim for their first pairing, "Fruitvale Station," in 2013. The "Rocky" spin-off, which also co-stars the original RockySylvester Stallone, as well as Tessa Thompson, will see Rocky Balboa acting as a trainer and mentor to the son of one of his previous opponents, Apollo Creed, as he preps to follow in his father's footsteps in the ring.

14 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In "Creed," Adonis travels to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky for guidance and help training. That's purportedly what's happening in the photo that Stallone shared, though we question Rocky's choice to wear a fedora in the ring.

First Look At Creed Sees The Italian Stallion Enter The Ring Once More

13 April 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When he isn’t whipping a bread factory into shape in the rather absurd (and rather brilliant) new ad for Warburtons, Sylvester Stallone is in the ring coaching Michael B. Jordon in Ryan Coogler’s new Rocky spin-off, Creed.

Set some time after the events of the seminal series, the story will primarily center around Jordan’s character, Adonis. As the son of Rocky Balbao’s enemy-turned-ally, Apollo Creed, it isn’t long before our protagonist is seeking advice and training from the former world beater, and it’s only under the tutelage of The Italian Stallion that Adonis will be able to emulate his father’s reputation and ultimately realize his full potential.

The core plot itself may not be wholly original, but there’s certainly a lot of promise brimming beneath Creed‘s burly, musclebound exterior. For one, as one of the lead’s in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, »

Rocky Steps Back in the Ring for First Creed Image

13 April 2015 9:24 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Filming is underway for the upcoming Rocky spin-off, Creed, and Sylvester Stallone has taken to his instagram to share the first image official image from the film, featuring him back in character.  Come inside to check it out! 

Rocky's back in the ring...sort of.  The upcoming Rocky spin-off isn't focusing on the Italian Stallion, but rather the son of Apollo Creed, who's stepping up to a career in boxing as well.  As far as moving the franchise forward goes, it's a smart move.  In this way they can still connect everything to the Rocky films, feature Stallone as the iconic character, but still have a fresh young actor to focus the story around that can appeal to a new generation.  At least that's the goal.  Today, Stallone offered up an update on the progress of the film, by posting this image to his Instagram account:

Pretty cool to see. »
