The first trailer for Michael B. Jordan’s new flick, Creed, has finally been released and all we can say is: Rocky Balboa who?
In the film, which is the seventh installment of the Rocky franchise, Jordan plays the son of Balboa’s frenemy, Apollo Creed. The trailer shows an a$$ kicking Jordan being trained by Rocky himself, (Sylvester Stallone) who serves as Jordan’s mentor.
Adonis, Jordan’s character, is joined on screen by Dear White People’s Tessa Thompson, who plays Jordan’s love interest, and Phylicia Rashad, who takes on the role of Mary Anne Creed.
“A great fighter once said ‘it ain’t about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward,’ Jordan says in the two minute and thirty second clip.
The film, out this fall, is directed by Fruitvale Station’s, Ryan Coogler.
