Creed is a 2015 American sports drama film written and directed by Ryan Coogler, co-written by Aaron Covington and produced by Sylvester Stallone, who also co-stars. The film also features Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew and Graham McTavish. It is a spin-off from the Rocky film series, and as such, is the seventh film in the series.

The film is also indirect successor to 2006's Rocky Balboa, and also reunites Jordan with Fruitvale Station writer/director Coogler and also Wood Harris, whom Jordan worked with on The Wire. It is also the first Rocky film not to have Stallone as a writer.

Filming began on January 19, 2015 in Liverpool and later also took place in Philadelphia, PA, Rocky's symbolic home. It was released on November 25, 2015 in the United States - the 40th anniversary of the date of the opening scene in the original Rocky.

Short synopsisEdit

The son of Apollo Creed, Adonis Johnson Creed, travels to Philadelphia, where he meets Rocky Balboa and requests that the elder boxer train him.

Film summaryEdit

Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
