Michael B. Jordan returns for another round of action in ‘Creed 2.’
Set for a Thanksgiving launch, the sequel to the 2015 ‘Rocky’ spin-off sees Adonis Creed (Jordan) battle to defeat the son of Ivan Drago, the powerful athlete who killed his father in the ring more than 30 years earlier.
Sylvester Stallone returns in an acting and writing capacity, while Ryan Coogler (who directed the franchise’s first outing) now serves as executive producer. His director seat, which he vacated due to commitments with global smash ‘Black Panther,’ is now occupied by Steven Caple Jr.
With the original flick being a critical and commercial success (grossing a huge $173.6 million at the box office from a $40 million budget), all eyes are on whether the follow-up can deliver.
The first trailer is here and brings with it a convincing hint of an answer…
‘Creed 2,’ which also stars Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, and Andre Ward hits theaters on November 21st 2018.
