Few movies have surprised me more than “Creed” and “Creed II”. The very idea of jump-starting the “Rocky” franchise by focusing on the son of Apollo Creed seemed like a stretch. As it turned out, Ryan Coogler, Michael B. Jordan, and Sylvester Stallone had a great story to tell, and they followed it up with an exceptional sequel (Stallone was robbed of a Best Supporting Actor Oscar). Now the third chapter is on the way with Jordan not just starring, but making his feature directorial debut.
The first trailer has dropped giving us a good taste of what we can expect. This time around Adonis Creed (Jordan) finds himself on a collision course with Damian Anderson (Jonathan Majors), a close friend from his past who’s fresh out of prison following an 18 year sentence. While the two were once like brothers, Damien clearly has animosity towards his old friend and he intends to settle things in the ring. “I’m coming for everything”, Majors utters with a confident snarl. Gratuitous body-flexing aside, the trailer captures the same spirit as the previous two films. I’m all in.
Just watched it on the big TV and… yeah, I wanna see this. I only saw some of Creed II but I did enjoy that film though I want to see the whole thing properly.
It’s a really good sequel. Surprising in many ways. Did you see the first Creed film?
I have seen the first film. I thought it was great.

I’m all out. Not a fan of boxing movies though I did like Rocky 1!
I can understand. What’s stunned me about these three Creed movies is how secondary boxing is to the stories. Hopefully this one will be the same.
Fingers xt for you!
