The first official Creed II photos have been released and it looks like more of the same… and we’re totally okay with that.
No one would blame you if you skipped the original Creed. Another Rocky film? Did we really need it? Then you watched it and it was awesome.
Then Creed II gets announced. “Ugh… the last one had the perfect ending! Wait… Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) is back?… WITH A SON?!? Dangit… I’m back in again.”
Can it live up to the high bar set by the first film? We certainly hope so, and we’ll definitely give it a shot.
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Creed II will hit theaters on Nov. 21.
