  • Warner Bros. and MGM have released the first trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel to Creed and the eighth installment to the Rocky franchise

His last film before Creed, entitled Rocky Balboa, was a feeble attempt at breathing life back into the franchise in 2006. Shared legacies shall be confronted by both Rocky and Adonis, and the two will determine, together, how to choose what's worth fighting for, while they discover that there's nothing more powerful than family. That plot, however, is only teased in the trailer above, which focuses on Adonis trying to recover from an in-ring beating, and learning that Rocky doesn't necessarily believe that the younger Creed can beat his opponent.

Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan returns as light heavyweight boxer Adonis Creed aka Donnie Johnson, who's set on avenging the death of his father Apollo Creed by boxing Ivan Drago's son Viktor.

Jordan is ready to get back in the ring in the first poster for Creed II. "When I wrote and directed Creed, I wanted to tell a human story about a family from a new perspective, while also paying homage to the Rocky characters we've all grown up knowing and loving. This guy's got nothing on us".

Palestinian dies after being wounded near Gaza
Around two million people live in Gaza, a lot of them the stateless descendants of refugees from what is now Israel . Israel's deadly tactics in confronting the weekly Friday protests have drawn worldwide condemnation.

Amid dramatic fight scenes interspersed with images of Creed and his family, the words "There's more to lose than a fight" appear on the screen.

Drago's son, Viktor, is played by the real-life professional boxer Florian Munteanu, and Tessa Thompson ("Thor: Ragnarok") also stars in the movie, reprising her role from the first film as Creed's girlfriend Bianca. Stallone's performance as the iconic Balboa earned him a Critics' Choice Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor as well as an Academy Award nomination.
