Rocky Balboa, tugging on heartstrings since 1976. Sly is back as his greatest character Rocky (step aside Rambo) for the seventh film in the classic franchise, Creed. Thankfully we won’t have to see Stallone taking a beating in the ring this time, as Michael B. Jordan (star of the upcoming Fantastic Four) takes ring duty as the son of Rocky’s friend and former opponent Apollo Creed – with Balboa training him all the way to undoubted glory.
Cue nostalgic throwbacks to iconic Rocky lines, classic Rocky tropes, and a simple yet effective set up for getting the main man Balboa back on the big screen (without getting him back in the ring).
Creed opens November 25th, 2015. Prepare for an uplifting nostalgia trip the likes of which only a Rocky movie can take you on.
