This looks good, I"m excited to see it.
I'm sensing a theme with this actor
He only takes on roles where his character seeks revenge on the son of the man who killed his father
I hope they do it right and have Drago kill this Creed too. Than Rocky can crawl into his hole and die a broken man.
Are you just basing this on two of his movies and ignoring everything else he has done?
Great trailer. Optimistic for the movie.
they showed the trailer during Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom not gonna lie I was interested
My only problem with the trailer: they should've ended on the clip of Drago, not squeezed in 2 others immediately afterwards
The lack of Dolph displeases me.
Creed 2: Milo Ventimiglia - This Is Us - Returns and More from the Set | Philly Chit Chat
Looks like Vito is returning as Rocky’s son, supposedly rocky visits him in Vancouver where the last movie said he lived with his family. Interesting, I’m hoping for a second trailer soon
I always predicted that he would return to the Rocky franchise following his This Is Us success. Saw this coming a mile away.
Also, an American city doubling for Vancouver? Is this the Twilight Zone?
As for the whole Drago returning thing, I like it but it seems kinda corny. Like this whole "you killed my father!" thing. And you would think there would had been some reference in the previous Creed film of the guy responsible for your fathers death was still out there involved in the sport. You would think that would be the first thing on Little Creeds mind.
I’d hope they plan a more complex story line than simply a revenge story. I think they’ll have dragos son be pretty sympathetic and not a villain, while Adonis is trying to make him the villain. Supposedly drago senior does not have the best reputation after failing the soviets, at least from what I’ve read.
loved the first one didn't think they could out do it. But damn they got my money again. When his opponent comes Into the ring and he turns to read the name on his robe.....HOLY ****.
Looks great, didn't think they could out do the first one. But when his opponent turns around and you read his name on his robe.....holy ****....you got my money again.
The really nice thing is they picked a guy that's about 5 or 6 inches taller then Creed and looks like a killing machine. But this movie has to have the training montage of New Drago training in a super high tech gym on the international space station, while Creed trains in a crappy gym, all to the music of Survivor.
Looks pretty insane, really excited to see what they do with dragos sons storyline
Hm, it could be on my list.
From marketing point, such fight would be a huge success in real world. Imagine all the background, stories ...
Btw., from Wikipedia:
For the sixth film in the Rocky series, Rocky Balboa (2006), Stallone asked Weathers, Mr. T, and Dolph Lundgren for permission to use footage from their appearances in the earlier Rocky films. Mr. T and Lundgren agreed, but Weathers wanted an actual part in the movie, even though his character had died in Rocky IV. Stallone refused, and Weathers decided not to allow Stallone to use his image for flashbacks from the previous films. They instead used footage of a fighter who looks similar to Weathers.
Meh... I would have given in to Weathers considering Mickey's force ghost appears in Rocky IV.
I actually want Mr. T to make a cameo as of all the guys Rocky fought he's the one I sympathize with the most.
The dude was an up and coming fighter who climbed the rankings taking on everyone above him only to have the champ duck him, fight lower ranked non-contenders, and try to retire instead of facing him. I'd be pissed if I were him and call Rocky out in public for being a coward too.
He's not even responsible for Mickey's death either as Mickey attacked him and all Clubber did was push him away. It's not like he threw haymakers at him. It's Rocky's camp's fault for not getting Mickey to the hospital in a timely manner especially when it was right next door and he clearly was suffering a heart attack! Man with people like that around no wonder Apollo died in the ring!
I forgot how much I liked the first "Creed" movie. It was a good example of how to use an old story to base a new story off of without relying too much on nostalgia. MBJ was very good, so was Tessa Thompson, and Stalone did a good job of staying out of the way, letting the new lead in the movie shine, while still being a strong positive influence on him. I'll have to rewatch it
Ivan and Rocky in the ring together again was a goosebumps moment.
My wife and I rewatched it recently as the previous trailer got us talking about how much we loved the first one.
I'm a little worried about the sequel here. I feel there's high risk of it to being too predictable. I know predictable and Rocky movies go hand in hand, but I found focusing on a brand new character last time who was engaging and interesting is what made-up it a success.
Another interesting thing from Wikipedia is that Lundgren holds a Master’s degree in chemical engineering, graduated top of his class, and won a Fulbright scholarship to MIT (which he gave up because he started dating Grace Jones).
Apparently he also almost killed Stallone when he punched him in the chest during filming Rocky IV:
New little tid bit about background of dragos son, viktor. “Drago's son who is also a boxer, and Adonis' new rival. He despises Adonis for their families' history as a result of being raised in contempt by his father.”
Pumped for this film
I know some people were worried that the changing away from coogler as a director could go wrong. Caple Jr and coogler went to school together and are very good friends, he will still have quite a bit of influence in the film. 1 month to go, this is my most anticipated movie for the rest of 2018
Pause the video at 2:07
Do they not have weight classes in the Rocky universe?
