Creed Synopsis

Creed sounds like a great way to structure a new chapter in the very long-running Rocky saga. For this film, Sylvester Stallone returns as Rocky, but he’s not the central figure. Rather, Rocky is working as trainer to Adonis Creed (Michael B Jordan, above), the son of his old rival Apollo Creed. In other words, Rocky is stepping into the shoes of his old trainer, Mickey. Now a Creed synopsis has surfaced, giving us a few new details about the story, including one which suggests the end of Rocky’s own path could be near. Read More »

Creed release date rocky

Briefly: Warner Bros. is beefing up its holiday film presence this week. The studio just dated and/or moved two of their heavy hitters. First up, the Ericson Core remake of Point Break has been pushed from summer to Christmas Day. More interestingly, though, the Ryan Coogler-directed Rocky spin-off Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, will be out even quicker. It’s currently filming but is now slated for release on November 25, 2015. [Box Office Mojo]

Rocky and Creed

Unlike some upcoming sequels and spin-offs, the Rocky spin-off Creed hasn’t been clamped down in some mystery box. We already know it’ll center around Apollo Creed’s grandson Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan); we know Adonis wants to be a boxer; we know he gets his granddaddy’s old rival Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) to get him into fighting shape.

Still, there are probably a few things the production would still like to keep under wraps. Like the ending, which Stallone may have just given away on Twitter. Hit the jump for the Sylvester Stallone Creed spoiler.  Read More »
