Trailer: It's DRAGO vs. CREED in the Trailer for CREED II...

Written by

We all face challenges and struggles in life, and sometimes the balance between personal issues and work becomes a hard thing to maintain. In CREED II, the eighth film in the Rocky series, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) struggles with that very challenge - balance - as the saga comes full circle with echoes of 1985 as Creed prepares to face an unexpected adversary that wears familiar colors of red and gold... DRAGO. See the trailer below!

Official Synopsis: 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.

Directed by Steven Caple Jr., CREED II was written by Sylvester Stallone. The film stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian "Big Nasty" Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad and Dolph Lundgren. See it in theaters on November 21, 2018.

While my memory of the Rocky films is somewhat rusty (might have to revisit), I couldn't resist tackling the famed "Rocky" steps during a visit to Philadelphia a few years back...
