Warner Bros. releases the second trailer of "Creed," a sports drama starring "Fantastic Four" star Michael B. Jordan and "Rocky" actor Sylvester Stallone.
The first "Creed" movie trailer established the tone and style of director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station). The second "Creed" movie trailer shows the main character's arc, showing main character Adonis Creed as a troublemaker whose decisions sometimes lands him in prison, but hopes to have a mentor in his life so he can become a professional boxer.
The movie features Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, as he is trained by his father's former rival, Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone. The cast also includes Graham McTavish (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show, Steel Magnolias) and Tessa Thompson (Dear White People, Selma).
According to an official press release previously released by Screen Rant, Adonis "never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born." Adonis can't deny that he has boxing in his blood, so he heads to Philadelphia, "the site of his father's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa."
"Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer," the official summary stated. "Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo-the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring."
"With Rocky in his corner, it isn't long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title...but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?"
With its trailer already out, "Creed" movie releases in U.S. theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.
