Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and written by none other than the much-loved Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) himself with the help of Cheo Hodari Coker, the highly anticipated Creed 2 will release on November 21st.
The official synopsis of the film may be of some interest to you, so we’ve posted it below:
“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.”

Ranking All The ‘Rocky’ Movies From Worst to Best
7. Rocky III (1982)
Getting right to the film that didn’t really need to happen, Rocky III. The story worked on some levels, but the choreographed fighting between Sylvester Stallone and Mr. T, who played Rocky’s nemesis James “Clubber” Lang, went to another level of “…really…?” The film featured a well-fed champ in Rocky Balboa, and a man who was hungry for the belt in Clubber Lang. After getting his hiney kicked by the challenger, Rock hits bottom, losing Mickey (Burgess Meredith), then subsequently losing himself. Fortunately, Rocky is lassoed by former foe turned friend, Apollo Creed, who pulls Rocky from the depths of despair to train, and get him back to championship form. Sure, the film is still watchable, and quite enjoyable on many levels (it introduced us to “Eye of The Tiger”), but Sly bawling all over Mickey’s corpse…meh.
