Creed II Revives an Old Rivalry

Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone reprise their roles as Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa in Creed II – the eighth movie in the Rocky franchise.

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.


Rocky is probably the longest lasting sport-movie franchise still around. It’s had it’s misses, but over the years, it’s managed to retain old fans and engage a brand new audience.

Fans of the franchise are in for a treat as Dolph Lundgren makes his return as Captain Ivan Drago.
