After posting a picture of Dolph Lundgren from 'Rocky IV' on his Instagram page earlier this month, Sylvester Stallone has been stoking up rumours about the plot of 'Creed 2'.
In it, Michael B Jordan’s Adonis Johnson (this is before he assumes his father’s name) takes on Leo ‘The Lion’ Sporino in a two-round boxing match that’s captured in one fluid take, without any cuts, also known in the industry as a “oner”. We’d blow a punch here, or we’d bump into the camera but eventually we started nailing it after lunch.
The latest trailer for Creed, a new sequel/spinoff of the Rocky franchise by Fruitvale Station writer-director Ryan Coogler, offers some details about its characters, and a gut-punch to fans of the long-running boxing franchise. Creed is meant to function as a generational torch-passing: Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), the underdog boxer at the center of six films, becomes the mentor of a fresh-faced young fighter named Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), who just so happens to be the son of Rock’s old pal/rival Apollo.
While promoting Fantastic Four, stars Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell sat down for a radio Q&A with the hosts of Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 Morning Show, Steven J. Rickman and Jason Bailey. Co-host Bailey begins the interview with what he called “the obvious question” — how is it that Jordan and Mara are playing siblings Sue and Johnny Storm? “You’re white and you’re black,” Bailey helpfully points out.
