This Thanksgiving, if you are looking for a Film that speaks to Strength, Determination Overcoming and Faith, then believe it or not CREED II is a Film you need to see! If you though the first Creed was amazing, Creed II tops it all! This is truly a MUST SEE for the entire family!
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family.
Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
In my option, most people will hear of this moving and thing “Oh It’s just a boxing film”, that is Not the case at all. Creed II speaks to a number of areas that people are faced with today. From having faith when things get ruff, Overcoming the unknown and how to build up your strength not just physically but mentally as well. It also speaks to the relationship of Fathers and Sons!
We had the opportunity to talk with Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Florian Munteanue, Dolph Lundgren and Director Steven Caple, Jr. Exclusively about the film, watch below:
When Creed was released in 2015 to audience and critical raves and massive box-office success, the filmmaking team had pulled off a seemingly impossible task: staying true to the spirit and style of the film’s iconic predecessors while forgoing its own path – not unlike the journey of its young protagonist, Adonis “Donnie” Creed, who sought to forge his own legacy while following in the footsteps of the world heavyweight champion father he never knew.
Through the introduction of Adonis, the illegitimate son of boxing legend Apollo Creed, Rocky’s onetime opponent-turned-friend and coach; the film reinvigorated and expanded the Rocky cinematic tapestry by returning the series to its underdog roots. Its gritty, compelling depiction of a young boxer pursuing his dream, searching for identity, and fighting for an opportunity to prove his self-worth became a fable again for a new generation many of whom weren’t even born when Rocky became 1976’s highest-grossing film, was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, won three (Including Best Picture of the Year), and launched the career of its then-unknown star and screenwriter Sylvester Stallone.
After six films between 1976 and 2006, as well as 2015’s Creed, it was the spirt of rebirth and the emotional theme of what it means to be a father or a son that drove the team to forge new ground in Creed II. “It was a brilliant idea to have the character of Adonis Creed, played beautifully by Michael B. Jordan,” says Irwin Winkler, who has produced all the Rocky and Creed Films. It was natural then that the next step would be taking that character into the future and delve further into his relationships with Rocky, his love Bianca (Tessa Thompson), his adoptive mother Mary Anne (Phylicia Rashad) and show how he’s handling life in the celebrity spotlight as a rising boxing star.”
IN SHORT, Thanksgiving 2018, Lets all fill the seats across the nation to make Creed II a #1 at box offices. I Promise you, you’ll love every moment of it from start to finish!
