Rocky Sequel “Creed” Drops This Fall; Check Out the Trailer

You know you will see them, if they keep making ’em till 2050, you will keep checking out the Rocky sequels. That is in your blood…

A new one drops, and this time, the focus is on the son of Apollo Creed; his dad died in the ring, and the ring is a place of existential ambivalence for him.

Looks like this re-boot is aimed at maybe a different segment of the movie-going public. It’s directed by the man who made “Fruitvale Station,” Ryan Coogler, and the trailer, seen below, ain’t done by Bill Conti.

Smart move, I think, tweaking, aiming for a new crew of converts. It helps rebut the staleness factor, and yes, it represents a major gamble, because a new path is being forged, the attempt should be applauded, if for no other reason than it it semi-audacious.

You don’t even see that much of Sly Stallone in the trailer for the film, which is basically a spin-off from the series, which comes out this fall, in late November.

Friends—what say you. Will you be checking out “Creed?”

I'll watch this, why not. Maybe he'll do battle with Clubber Lang's kid, or Ivan Drago's kid. Rocky V was forgettable, so they won't bring in Tommy Gunn's kid I'm guessing. One thing, is Creed's kid just getting started?? If he was born the year of his death, he'd be about 30. Hopefully he had some amateur experience. I'm in, I'll probably wait for it on demand but if I'm bored enough I'll go to the theater.

Yall already know da deal. I told you about it over two years ago about this sequel. Yours truly Radam G and his son, Little G, will be up in in the flick hiding in plain sight. Holla!


-stormcentre :

Nope, not me. At least, not in the cinemas anyways. I'll wait for it to hit free to air and a time when I have nothing else to do; armchair ambush. Loved the first 3 or 4, but the production and acting quality, and also the realism, lacks too much these days. The story is a little worn. I guess it's easy for me to adopt this approach though, especially whilst there are so many "real" PBC fight shows on now; that none of us can know the outcomes too. :) :)

If Creed is a welter and uses his father's fame and Rocky connections to get opponents to boil down to 144 in a series of 'catchweight' bouts - I'm out!

Ha, ha, ha, pretty good !


-Radam G :

Ain't we taking this flick too seriously. I've been told that tons of kids and grown men got into boxing after seeing the very first flick of "Rocky." The movie beat down the flick "The Greatest" about GOAT Ali back then in 1976 and 1977. Matter of fact, the GOAT played himself in the flick. During the late 1970s, the Rocky movie earned as much dough as Ali-Frazier, Ali-Foreman and Ali-Norton. In this age of social media and electronic thef, no way that "Creed" gets anywhere near the moolah of the MAYPAC farce. Money May is already hyping the rematch by slapping a dummy that he pretends is Da Manny. Holla!


-Radam G :

YUP! Money May is tough with it outside that squared jungle. But inside it, he clinched and held on to the one-armed Manny like a bytch. But Money May really sit down on his slaps with this dummy-arse mannequin:

if it happens rematch wont sell if it isnt around 50$ at least that is what I think. 99$ for Floyd to hold and clinch more than he punched what a disappointment.
