What would you do if the man responsible for your father’s death had a son, and that son wanted to get in the ring with you? We’re about to find out in Creed II.
Yes, Drago (Dolph Lundgren) is back. The man responsible for Apollo’s death, and Rocky’s nemesis in Rocky IV. It’s going to be interesting to see how this confrontation plays out on all sides from the old and new generations alike.
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 hits theaters on Nov. 21.
