Creed II: Official Trailer

Check out boxing’s next big movie.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Yesterday MGM released it’s second official trailer for the next ‘Rocky’ installment, Creed II. In the film actor Michael B. Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed.

The first Creed film was a really good watch, and in this sequel they’re looking to up the drama by playing off an old story line from Rocky IV where Apollo Creed was bludgeoned to death by Ivan Drago.

Well it turns out that Ivan Drago has a son too, Viktor Drago, who is also an imposing figure in the sport of boxing. So it’s only natural that both sons square off in what will be a generational grudge match on the big screen.

Check out the full two-and-a-half minute preview of the upcoming film above, with the movie expected to hit theaters this fall, on November 21st.

Hopefully this latest installment can live up to the quality of the last, without director Ryan Coolger at the helm.
