This winter brings the promising spin-off Creed, which is also a spiritual sequel of sorts to the iconic Rocky franchise that Sylvester Stallone has kept going for decades. Michael B.

A new TV spot has just popped up online showing Rocky training the young new boxer Adonis Creed, but then there’s a little tease of one particular point of drama in the movie. In this Creed TV spot, it appears Rocky isn’t exactly in the best shape and may spend a little time in the hospital. Would this spin-off be so bold as to kill him off and truly pass the torch to Michael B. Jordan? Read More »

Creed marks a new chapter in the long Rocky storyline, and the film is both a sequel and, in a way, a reboot. Rocky is still around, still played by Sylvester Stallone. But this time, he’s in the corner as a trainer for a young fighter, and that fighter is the son of his old foe Apollo Creed. Michael B. Jordan plays Adonis Creed, a promising slugger who will also be the true star of the new film.
Update: Just after we ran a brief bit of footage from the film, the first Creed trailer arrived. You can check it out below. Read More »

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.

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 »
