Official Creed II Trailer
With all the focus on big blockbuster films from Marvel and Pixar and even films like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it's easy to forget about some of the other films coming out. I knew Creed II was coming out but completely forgot about it. Seeing this trailer makes me instantly excited. Creed was a surprising hit. It was hard not to believe that this wasn't just Hollywood trying to bleed a franchise dry for all it had. There were already like 50 Rocky films and it felt like a cheap way of continuing to make more. But that wasn't the case at all. A young director named Ryan Coogler (maybe you've heard of him) teamed up with Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone to make an impactful and emotional film that in my opinion, is even better than any of the Rocky films. While Coolger isn't returning as the director for Creed II, another young black director has been given an opportunity carry on this franchise and I'm really excited to see what Steven Caple Jr brings to the table.
This trailer seems to carry the same emotional weight as the first film and is going to get me in the theater day one.
