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?”
