Apollo Creed is now dead and he was the former rival of one Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), who now serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis. The film also stars Graham McTavish, Phylicia Rashad, Stephanie Damiano and Selma‘s Tessa Thompson.
Today, a second trailer has been released. However, it still doesn’t excite me in any way. And while Creed is released in the US on November 25th, it now has a UK date of February 19th 2016, so not only do we get it three months late, but it’s also in the Jan/Feb period which is where all the crap films get dumped, unless they’re due an Oscar or BAFTA… and this one clearly isn’t.
The Rocky films just got worse the longer they went on. And as for Stallone’s Grudge Match, let’s forget about that monstrosity…
Check out the trailer below and click on the poster for the full-size image:
