As some rolled their eyes at the idea of a Rocky spin-off when it was announced, others got a tad excited when Michael B. Jordan was tapped to play Apollo Creed’s son.
Fruitvale Station’s writer and director Ryan Coogler teams up again with Jordan in the next addition to the Rocky franchise.
Jordan stars as Adonis Johnson, the son of world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed. When Adonis decides he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps, he heads to Philadelphia and lures the one and only Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) out of retirement to help him train.
Creed hits theaters on November 25th, 2015.
