Creed II will have Adonis Creed facing off against Victor Drago, son of Ivan Drago – the man who killed Adonis’ father, Apollo. That sets Creed II up to seem like less of a boxing drama and more of a revenge thriller. But according to star Michael B. Jordan, there’s a lot more to Creed II than simple revenge. According to the actor, Creed II‘s story is more layered than a simple synopsis might suggest.

Fahrenheit 451 review

Ray Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 gets a slick, stylish update for the Trump era courtesy of 99 Homes director Ramin Bahrani. On the surface, taking Bradbury’s book about the suppression of knowledge and setting it firmly in a world that seems to be crafted in the image of Donald Trump makes sense, and there’s a potentially brilliant movie to be made from this concept.

Instead, Bahrani weighs Fahrenheit 451 down with a near-painful lack of subtlety, to the point where the film feels like it’s screaming in your face with a megaphone, “GET IT?” Bradbury’s source material wasn’t exactly subtle to begin with, but writer-director Bhrani takes things to the extreme.

Killmonger was one of the greatest, most nuanced villains to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s sad to know that he won’t return. But there’s one good thing to come out of Michael B. Jordan‘s tour-de-force performance in Black Panther: he’s not lacking for work.

Jordan has been signing up for project after project, so we can count on seeing his talented face on the big and small screen for the foreseeable future. And his latest project is a doozy: Jordan will reunite with his Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole in Netflix’s adaptation of Failsafe.
