The wait is almost over. Creed II is heading to cinemas nationwide on Friday 30th November and to prepare for the bout of the year, Warner Bros have released a brand new batch of fantastic behind the scenes featurettes.
Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren take centre-stage for these new videos that showcase what fans can expect from the latest Boxing drama, but it also finds the two legends reminiscing about their work on Rocky IV and how they came to work together. It’s fantastic to see Stallone and Lundgren revisit the film and look back at key moments from their past and the legacy of the Rocky franchise.
Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, Florian Munteanu, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby and Phylicia Rashad and is the latest instalment in the beloved Rocky saga, which now runs at 8 movies.
The first Creed movie came out in 2015 and was a critical and box-office smash hit. With awards season recognition thrown in for good measure too, Creed put Rocky firmly back on the cinematic map for new generations and old. Creed II allows audiences to relive the classic movies and look forward to a bold new era in the saga of Rocky Balboa and Adonis Creed.
Michael B. Jordan steps between the ropes once again as Adonis Creed, Apollo Creed’s son, with mentor and trainer Rocky Balboa back in his corner for a high-stakes fight, but tensions run high as the past comes back to haunt both men. Rocky Balboa is once again played by screen legend Sylvester Stallone.
Steven Caple Jr. takes over directing duties from Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler, who still acts as an executive producer on the film.
Steven Caple Jr. has most recently worked on the TV series Class and Grown-ish, and the feature film The Land. He most recently directed Rapture, a documentary TV Mini-Series.
The supporting cast for Creed II includes Andre Ward, Michael Buffer, Monica Haynes, Myles Humphus, Darin Ferraro, Ivo Nandi and Kristina Aponte.
As Rocky fans remember all-too-well, Ivan Drago killed Adonis’ father Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers) in the ring at the start of Rocky IV, before Rocky Balboa defeated him in a bruising bout in Russia. With plenty of unaddressed history and emotional pain, Adonis now must square up to Viktor (Ivan Drago’s son) in a boxing bout that will define both of their legacies, as Rocky and Ivan also prepare to revisit their shared past.
