Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed has loyalty inside his DNA, apparently. That’s the reason why he’s going to face Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) in the ring in Creed II. Drago senior (Dolph Lundgren) was the man who killed Creed’s dad Apollo (Carl Weathers) back in 1985’s Rocky IV. Sylvester Stallone mentors as Rocky Balboa in the boxing flick which opens on 30 November 2018.
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.
