Ahead of its debut on the home formats in a few weeks, we have details on the DVD/Blu-ray release of Creed II. The film, a sequel to the superb boxing movie Creed, lands on disc/download on 25th March. Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester are amongst the cast.
Here is the official release.
From Warner. Bros Home Entertainment, “Creed II” stars Michael B. Jordan (“Black Panther,” “Creed”) and Sylvester Stallone (“Rocky”,“Rambo”), reprising their roles as Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa.

Steven Caple Jr. directed “Creed II” from an original screenplay co-written by Juel Taylor and Stallone, story by Sascha Penn and Cheo Hodari Coker, based on characters created by Stallone. The film is produced by Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Kevin King-Templeton, and Stallone. Ryan Coogler, Jordan and Guy Riedel served as executive producers.
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.
