Creed 2 trailer lands online

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.

Sylvester Stallone wrote the script for Creed II and also returns to the screen as Rocky Balboa for the eight time. In the first movie in this spin-off movie, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, though unfortunately lost out come the big day back in 2016.
