July 6, 2018 was Sylvester Stallone’s 72nd birthday, and to celebrate, MGM has released a new Creed II poster featuring his character Rocky Balboa. The Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) poster and the trailer for the film debuted a few weeks ago and can be viewed here as well.
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, opening in theaters on November 21, 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., the sequel also stars Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad, and Dolph Lundgren.
Stallone, Kevin King-Templeton, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, and Irwin Winkler are producing Creed II, which is executive produced by Ryan Coogler, Michael B. Jordan, Guy Riedel.
