You ‘Rocky‘ fans are in for a treat. It’s been nearly three years since ‘Creed‘ was released. The ‘Rocky’ spinoff was a huge hit with both the audience at home and the critics. It took home over $170 million at the box office and scored a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
And now, we’re preparing for Creed II, which is set to be released later this year. Sylvester Stallone went on his social media accounts today to share the good news that filming has officially started on the sequel.
He didn’t give us a look at any of the stars, but he did show us his trailer, so that counts for something. Steven Caple Jr. will be directing this sequel and both Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson have returned.
Collider provides us with more information:
“Written by Stallone and Cheo Hodari Coker (Luke Cage) and taking direct inspiration from Ryan Coogler‘s 2015 awards-worthy pic, Creed II will see Jordan return as Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed, to continue his training under Rocky Balboa in order to prep for what’s sure to be a brutal fight against Vitor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren).”
Creed II is set to hit theaters November 21, 2018, so maybe we’ll see our first trailer by the end of summer. We will keep you posted.[mashshare]
