Creed II Story

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.

The first official Creed II images are here, and they deliver a one-two punch of hype for this highly-anticipated sequel. Where Ryan Coogler’s 2015 Creed saw Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) wrestling with his father’s legacy as one of the greatest boxing champions of all time, Creed II sees him reckoning with the opponent who took his father’s life.

JC Richard Rocky Print

Last week we got a peek at the next installment in the Rocky franchise in the form of the trailer for the sequel spin-off Creed II. Sylvester Stallone is back as Rocky Balboa, but he’s still outside of the ring, mentoring Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of the late Apollo Creed. But let’s not forget what brought us here, starting all the way back in 1976.

Rocky is the Best Picture winning sports drama that helped defined what made a movie like this great. Artist JC Richard has created a magnificent print paying tribute to Rocky showing the iconic Philadelphia boxer out on one of his training runs. The wide shot of the docks makes for a beautiful background as Rocky runs towards victory. Read More »

Original Rocky Movie Poster

Rocky is not just one of the greatest sports movies of all time, but one of the greatest films ever made. Period.

But if there’s one thing about the Rocky that wasn’t all that great, it was the original poster. Even though it features the great tagline “His whole life was a million-to-one shot,” the black and white poster only featured Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and Adrian (Talia Shire) walking with their backs to us. Or there’s also the black and white one sheet featuring Rocky with his arms raised at the top of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is an iconic image, but it’s not exactly a great poster.

However, before those became the official Rocky posters, there was an awesome illustrated poster created by artist Tom Jung, and Sylvester Stallone has just revealed it to the public for the first time. Check out the original Rocky movie poster below. Read More »

Ivan Drago in Creed 2

Update: This past weekend, Sylvester Stallone posted a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #drago, which is yet another piece of confirmation that a member of the Drago family will be a character in Creed 2. Read our original article from July 5 below for speculation about how this might play out in the sequel.

Ever since Creed hit theaters in the fall of 2015, surprising us all with just how outstanding a spin-off of Rocky could be, fans have been wondering when/if a sequel would come together. Though MGM CEO Gary Barber once mentioned that he would like to get a Creed sequel together for release in November of this year, that’s certainly not happening. But that doesn’t mean the prospect of a sequel is dead altogether.

Sylvester Stallone has been taking to Instagram over the past couple of weeks with some interesting nostalgic posts that seem to hint at what’s in store for Creed 2. In fact, one of them seems to flat-out confirm what kind of territory the story could be heading, and it includes a face from the past who could really make things interesting. Read More »
