Creed movie preview


One of the most anticipated films of the year is Creed, directed by Ryan Coogler, and is set to release on Nov. 25, 2015.

This film follows the Rocky series, and includes Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) as a prominent character. There is a lot of buzz about this film because of the past success of the Rocky films.

“I am looking forward to Creed,” senior Dini Mohamud said, “I love boxing movies and after watching Fruitvale Station, I think Michael B. Jordan is a really good actor.”

Critics are worried that this movie might deteriorate the accomplishments of the Rocky films, but that’s a risk filmmakers are willing to take.

Creed follows the life of Apollo Creed’s son Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), but Johnson never knew his father because he died before Adonis was born.

Johnson wants to follow in the footsteps of his father and become a legendary boxer. He can’t do it by himself, so he seeks out his father’s most eminent rival, Balboa.

Johnson trains with Balboa and with his help he gets a title shot. Will Johnson grasp this opportunity or will he crumble like his father?
