Brand New 'Creed II' Trailer Puts Adonis & Rocky Back In The Ring

The new Creed 2 trailer dropped on Wednesday and it features another familiar face from the Rocky universe.

When we learned that Creed II would be about Ivan Drago's son challenging Adonis Creed's son to rematch I rolled my eyes so hard I got bruises like Rocky after a match. When he is challenged to a fight to Viktor Drago, Ivan Drago's son - you know the son of the guy who killed his father - he doesn't feel he has any choice but to accept. Though he's counseled by his trainer, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), not to enter the ring with Viktor, who he says was "raised in hate", it's clear that Adonis isn't going to listen to the Italian Stallion's advice.

Also, I don't think we've had a Rocky sports training montage in the desert yet.

The tense history between Rocky and Drago goes all the way back toRocky IV - which was made at the height of the Cold War, and featured Apollo Creed (Adonis' dad) taking to the ring to take on Drago senior in a U.S. vs USSR grudge match. That's literally what the first Creed was about.

The second trailer for Creed II is here and it's shaping up to be the most personal fight of Adonis Creed's entire life.

Ford contends that Kavanaugh and Judge, both of whom she described as "stumbling drunk", corralled her in a bedroom. The calendar pages are from the summer of 1982, which is when Ford says she believes the assault occurred.

"Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring". Adonis takes the fight as he and Rocky confront their shared legacy.
