Warner Bros. Pictures is sharing the official trailer for Creed II, the sequel to 2015’s original hit Rocky spinoff.
The trailer is soundtracked by Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA.,” and finds Adonis Creed training for a match against the son of Ivan Drago, who killed his father in the ring over 30 years ago. Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson all return for the movie; Steven Caple Jr. (The Land, Grown-ish) is the director this time around, although Ryan Coogler does serve as an executive producer.
Read the synopsis below.
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. 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 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.
Creed II hits theaters November 21st.
