Warner Brothers released a new trailer for “Creed” today and the film is looking great so far. Sylvester Stallone will be returning as Rocky Balboa for a seventh time. Although it seems like Stallone is slowing down, I am totally fine with them making another movie based on his character. In this film Stallone will be taking a backseat to the main character, Michael B Jordan. Jordan will be playing Apollo Creed’s son; Adonis Creed in the film. “Creed” is directed by Ryan Coogler, who has previously worked with Jordan on “Fruitvale Station”. A movie which has gotten high praise for its superb acting and writing.
The trailer is suffering from a problem that has plagued many trailers in the last few years. It shows a little too much in it. Albeit the scenes are great, I think that the trailer spoils some scenes in the film. I don’t think they needed to show that Rocky became sick in the trailer because many people would assume he may die in this film. That is something that I would like to be kept in the movie without being spoiled in the trailer. Although there are spoilers in the trailer, I still think it’s great. It also seems that Philly plays an important part in this movie as it did in the previous films.
I was skeptical about this movie at first, but after seeing the last few trailers, I am excited for it to release. I love the way they’re setting up the story around Apollo Creed’s son, played by an up and coming actor in Michael B. Jordan. “Creed” will be released on November 25th, 2015.
