First trailer for Rocky spin-off Creed starring Michael B. Jordan


Gonna fly now, gonna fly forever

Everyone's got that one film franchise that means more to them than anything. Some have Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, and there's probably a few folks that really want more of Pixar's Cars. But me, I've got Rocky. When Rocky Balboa brought an end to the series, I was pretty devastated but understanding. It was over, and there was no more story to tell. Yet, here we are. 

This is the first trailer for Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, Apollo's son. While I didn't like Fruitvale Station too much, I'm fine with the director handling this. This is just such a well crafted trailer. It doesn't rely on Stallone's appearance (though seeing him re-up on the Balboa persona was enough to break me), and has a love for the Balboa mythos. It's got a great cast, Rocky is the new Mickey, and that mirror bit was classic Balboa. 

Creed releases on Thanksgiving Day. I'll be there.
