Today, MGM and United Artists Releasing gave us our first look at the trailer for their upcoming boxing sequel, Creed III. The third installment of the series once again stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis “Donnie” Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa’s rival turned friend Apollo Creed. Following in the footsteps of “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone, Jordan is taking over the reigns and is making his directorial debut.
After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed has been thriving in both his career and family life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian (Jonathan Majors), resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter who has nothing to lose.
