The captivating first trailer for MGM’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Creed II dropped on Wednesday, and this film looks like a total knockout!

Directed by Steven Caple Jr., Michael B. Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, who is about to face a familiar opponent. Creed’s next fight is against Viktor Drago (Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who was responsible for killing Creed’s father in the ring in Rocky IV.

In addition to Jordan, Munteanu, and Lundgren, the film also stars Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Andre Ward, and Phylicia Rashad. Stallone also served as the writer for the film with Jordan, Ryan Coogler, and Guy Riede as executive producers.

The official synopsis for Creed II reads as follows:

[row]”Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”[/row]
