Lots of big movies these days want to re-visit a classic franchise, taking elements from the older films, twisting storylines, adding in fancy effects tricks and re-casting to ensure actors in case a new series is ignited. But Creed – which stars Michael B. Jordan – is ready to instead revitalise theRocky movies with some appropriate new blood. Take a look at the first trailer for the film. 
Creed, shot by Jordan’s Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, finds the actor as Adonis Johnson, a driven young fighter who despite the boxing ability pulsing through his veins, never knew his father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died in the ring before he was born.
But while he’s not so eager to embrace connections to his father, he knows he needs a good trainer, so he heads to Philadelphia to find one of Apollo’s most famous opponents: Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone). Despite his misgivings and insistence that he’s out of the fight game, Rocky sees in Adonis the spirit of his father, and agrees to take him on. And both men realise they need this, as they’re facing dangerous opponents.
With Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad and real life pro boxer Anthony Bellew in the cast, Creedwill land here on November 27. It’s already looking like it could be something special...
