Second Opinion – Southpaw (2015)

26 July 2015 3:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Southpaw, 2015.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams, 50 Cent, Oona Laurence, Miguel Gomez, Victor Ortiz and Skylan Brooks.

Synopsis:

Boxer Billy Hope turns to trainer Tick Willis to help him get his life back on track after losing his wife in a tragic accident and his daughter to child protection services.

If Antoine Fuqua has succeeded in any way by making Southpaw, it’s confirmation that we do not need another boxing drama anytime soon – or at the very least not one as lifeless, predictable and uninspired as this. It sullies the name of the great ones to even mention Southpaw in the same review.

Having said that, there is no easy way around the pitfalls of the movie without drawing comparisons as to why similar pictures work so well; after all, our appreciation of such stories is driven by what we’ve seen before and »

26 July 2015 12:25 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Floyd Mayweather won't be in 'Creed,' but his swag will be -- Sylvester Stallone tapped Floyd's favorite boxing glove company to be the official mitt of the movie. Elvis Grant, CEO of of Grant Worldwide tells us Sly called him personally to request his company outfit all the fighters in the latest Rocky flick. It's no wonder Stallone reached out -- Mayweather uses Grant exclusively for his fights, and umm ... last we checked »

Southpaw review: Jake Gyllenhaal bulks up for a heavyweight performance

24 July 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Antoine Fuqua; Screenwriter: Kurt Sutter; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Oona Laurence, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Rita Ora; Running time: 124 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal brings considerable heft to a boxing drama that's a little soft in places and stuffed full of the usual clichés by director Antoine Fuqua (who has yet to match his 2001 hit Training Day). Even the fighter's name, Billy Hope, is a little too on-the-nose in trying to push a credo about resilience in the face of adversity. The star, who packed on the pounds for this role, shoulders the burden with grace.

Hope is, without a shadow of a doubt, a good guy, although he is an animal when his blood is up - a Beast, as described by the lyrics of the rap track he listens to before a big fight. True to the hip-hop culture (Eminem was once attached to star and contributes one track, »

"Rambo 5" To Have Rambo vs. Isis?

12 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In arguably the strangest story of the day, Sylvester Stallone has revealed that he currently has people in one of the world's most dangerous hot spots right now garnering intel for the next "Rambo" movie.

Speaking with The Washington Times during an appearance at Comic-Con on Friday to promote his upcoming "Rocky" spin-off "Creed," Stallone said:

"We have teams scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where Isis have their greatest strongholds. We're working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever."

Asked for further clarification on his plans, Stallone say only that he's "really excited to talk about Creed today" and would not talk further about the film.

"Rambo: Last Blood" will see the actor take on the role of John Rambo for one last time, and he has previously described it as his version of "The Guns of Navarone". »

“Creed”: An under the radar Oscar contender?

6 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Ladies and gentlemen, I know it sounds silly, but a sequel/spinoff from Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky films might be in awards contention this year. Yes, the upcoming movie Creed is another installment in the franchise centered around fighter Rocky Balboa, but this one takes a U-turn. Instead of being about Stallone’s pugilist, it’s about former rival turned friend Apollo Creed’s son. Rocky is more the trainer than the protagonist, essentially re-launching this series with a grittier and younger bent to it. A Trailer hit last week and really impressed me (which you’ll see below), leading me to wonder if the Academy might once again be interested in this franchise? For those who don’t know, the first Rocky with a big time Oscar contender, nominated for ten Academy Awards and winning three (Best Picture, Best Director for John G. Avildsen, and Best Film Editing). Stallone himself was cited two times, »

2 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So which movie is going to be the boxing pic of the year: Jake Gyllenhaal's "Southpaw" or Sylvester Stallone's continuation of the "Rocky" franchise, "Creed"? The latter has been riding some high buzz following the first trailer which recently dropped, but Harvey Weinstein has already been pushing the former hard as it gears up to open later this month.

Will 'Creed' be Oscars knockout for 'Rocky' franchise?

1 July 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Now that the trailer for "Creed" has been released by Warner Bros. (watch below), we're left to wonder: Will the film be an Oscars comeback for the "Rocky" franchise, or will it be an afterthought like so many of its sequels? Sound off in our movie forums on this hot topic. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders "Creed" reunites "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler with Michael B. Jordan, who stars as the titular Adonis Creed (son of Apollo). This is the seventh film in the popular boxing franchise, and yes, Sylvester Stallone returns as the iconic Rocky Balboa. So far, the franchise has racked up 11 total Oscar nominations. However, a whopping 10 of those came for the inaugural film in 1976. Many of the sequels received tepid reviews and were far from awards contenders ... unless you count the Razzies. Let's take a look at how the first half-dozen films fared at the Oscars. »

A celebration of Carl Weathers, the man behind Rocky's Apollo Creed

1 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It only took one view of the Creed trailer for the memories to come flooding back. The Rocky spinoff sees Sylvester Stallone on hand to train the son of his one-time nemesis Apollo Creed.

Of course, Carl Weathers, the man who brought Apollo to life, won't be present in the film (unless there's a Burgess Meredith-like spectral reappearance!), so we've taken some time out to celebrate the man behind the original Creed.

Rocky & Apollo Forever

Weathers played Apollo Creed in the first four Rocky films, duelling with Balboa before the pair eventually become brothers in arms. A thunderous punch from Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) shockingly killed Creed, prompting Rock to vow revenge in the ring.

Apollo is in Creed only in spirit, but there are still many fond memories. Chief of which has to be the above montage from Rocky III. Pure cheese, pure joy.

Michael B. Jordan Shows Off Buff Boxing Bod In First 'Creed' Trailer

1 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Michael B. Jordan is ready to get in the ring! The actor is putting on the gloves for the upcoming Rocky spinoff, "Creed," and we're getting glimpse at his buff boxing bod in the first trailer for the movie.  Jordan plays Adonis Creed, the son of Stallone's former on-screen nemesis Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). "It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward," Jordan says at one point, quoting Rocky. We see Creed track down Balboa himself after heading to Philly for training -- yep, Sylvester Stallone is in this one too. For "Rocky" fans, it's definitely worth watching. Not only that, Michael's super-fit physique will definitely get your blood boiling! The film also stars Tessa Thompson as Adonis' love interest, as well as Phylicia Rashad as his mother -- taking over the role of Mary Anne Creed from Lavelle Roby and Sylvia Meals. »

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

1 July 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | 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'

1 July 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | 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

1 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | 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

30 June 2015 11:03 PM, PDT | 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, »
