Having spawned six previous installments, Creed is seventh in the iconic Rocky sports drama film series and involves the aspiring boxer/son of former Rocky Balboa rival/friend Apollo Creed. Rocky creator and star Sylvester Stallone co-stars and served as a producer for the project, which is directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station).
Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) has big dreams and even bigger shoes to fill when he decides to follow in the footsteps of his late father. The younger Creed has had an unsteady upbringing, wavering between walking the straight and narrow path or the lure of the streets. Eventually he comes to realize that his boxing skills are in desperate need of fine-tuning, and he turns to his father's former nemesis Rocky Balboa for much-needed mentoring. Rocky has been out of the fight game for awhile, but owing memories of his glory days, his allegiance to his departed friend, and the familiar characteristics he sees in the young boxer, he agrees to help.
Rounding out Creed's cast are Tessa Thompson, Tony Ballew, Graham McTavish and Phylicia Rashad.
