Most of you should know I am not a big fan of sequels, but this latest ‘Rocky‘ movie starring Michael B. Jordan isn’t just a sequel. After watching the first trailer for Creed, it’s clear this movie is going to set up a brand new franchise.
A franchise where Jordan is the star. For those of you out there worried that Sylvester Stallone would try to take over this film, well, you should probably watch the trailer at the bottom of this page. There will be only one star in this movie, and as we mentioned above, it’s going to be Michael B. Jordan. The 28-year-old actor worked his butt off for this role.
He’s in the best shape of his life, “I’m working out a lot. I’m boxing, training. I’m putting on the weight. I’m working with Sylvester Stallone. We’re putting the time in now to get it right.” He told The Daily Beast back in October of last year. All of that hard work in the ring paid off, because it looks like he’s been doing this for years in the trailer.
The film is scheduled to hit theaters November 25, 2015. Many people believe the November release date is to avoid the Star Wars monster in December. However, maybe the people behind Creed feel like it has some Oscar potential? Jordan’s performance does look pretty impressive.
