Creed 2 (2018)

November 21, 2018
PG-13
Action, Drama, Sports

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 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.

This is the sequel to 2015's Creed, which was a spinoff of the Rocky film franchise that introduced audiences to Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed. Sylvester Stallone reprised his iconic Rocky Balboa character and earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance.

The Rocky series started in 1976, when the original movie was a box office hit and won Best Picture at the Oscars. It was followed by five sequels, beginning with Rocky II in 1979. The third and fourth installments were released in 1982 and 1985, respectively, and Rocky did not return until 1990's Rocky V. Widely seen as the worst of the series, its reception left a bitter taste in Stallone's mouth, inspiring him to come back for one more round in Rocky Balboa, which debuted in 2006.

Creed was the brainchild of director Ryan Coogler, who pitched the idea to Stallone and got him onboard. The film saw Rocky move into a mentor role as he trained Adonis, who was looking to follow his late father's footsteps and become a great fighter. Creed was a box office success and earned the best reviews the series had seen in decades, which prompted interest in a sequel. Coogler will not return to direct due to his commitment to Marvel's Black Panther, so Stallone is handling writing and directing responsibilities. Creed 2 will see the return of Dolph Lundgren's Ivan Drago, the villain in Rocky IV who killed Apollo in the ring.

Disney initially had Ralph Breaks the Internet in place for a March 2018 release date, but moved it back to November 2018.

Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

This is the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the Harry Potter franchise spinoff that was released in 2016.
