If I were to rank some of my favourite characters Rocky Balboa would easily come in second. Not bad considering first place would go to a demigod alien saviour of earth. Sylvester Stallone returned to the role which brought him fortune and fame one last time in 2006’s Rocky Balboa. At least that’s what most of us thought.
In a year filled with sequels to yesteryear properties (e.g. Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, etc) director Ryan Coogler has found a way to spin-off the Rocky franchise. And from the looks of it he has done a pretty good job of it.
Check out the trailer for 2015 Rocky spin-off “Creed” on alcaTsar blog
Michael B. Jordan, who’ll soon be seen scorching the screens in “Fantastic Four”, plays Adonis Creed the son of former boxing champ Apollo Creed. Looking to step out of his legendary fathers shadows Adonis ropes in his dad’s old buddy Rocky to train him.
Is this just a well-cut trailer for Creed? Will we end up with a corny rich-kid-does-good story? Whatever the case may end up being come November 2015 when Creed hits cinemas this sure looks a helluva lot better than the upcoming “Southpaw”.
