Review: Creed PLOT: Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) – the illegitimate son of former champ Apollo Creed – travels to Philadelphia in order to train with his father's former nemesis-turned best friend, the legendary Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone). REVIEW: When I first heard director Ryan Coogler (FRUITVALE STATION) wanted to do a ROCKY-spin off focused on Apollo Creed's (memorably played by Carl... Read More...

Creed Wins Both the Fight and the Night Warner Bros. You’d be forgiven for lacking much in the way of anticipation towards the seventh film in a nearly forty year-old franchise. Sure, the early entries back in the ’70s and ’80s remain immensely entertaining and memorable, but the same can’t quite be said for the more recent films.

Sylvester Stallone, on Passing the Torch from Rocky to Creed Fandango sat down one-on-one with Stallone at the Creed junket in New York to talk about passing the torch, his love for playing underdogs, and the knockout punch star Jordan actually took while filming. While Creed will be considered the seventh and final film in the long-running Rocky series, it may also be the start of a separate new franchise if it knocks audiences out. Directed by Ryan Coogler (AFI’s 2014 Movie of the Year Fruitvale Station), it balances boxing...Read MoreRead Comments

Creed Early Reviews: Rocky Spinoff is Formulaic, But Hits its Mark Creed, the seventh installment overall in the Rocky movie franchise, tells the story of Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), son of the late boxing champion Apollo Creed. Adonis, in spite of his own personal fears about following in his father’s footsteps, fancies becoming a professional fighter himself and sets out to Philadelphia – seeking the help of his father’s boxing rival-turned friend, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).

Laverne Cox to play Frank-N-Furter in Rocky Horror Picture Show TV special Earlier this year, Fox announced plans for a THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW television special to celebrate the film's 40th anniversary, and now Variety has learned that Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox has been cast as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Cox became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Emmy acting award for her role as Sophia Burset on the Netflix series, and recently... Read More...

Michael B. Jordan must live up to his father's legacy in new Creed TV spot It's always satisfying when a franchise manages to right itself after a less than stellar entry; sure, it took a few years but ROCKY BALBOA brought back a lot of the goodwill that ROCKY V lost. The latest film in the ROCKY saga looks to continue that upward trajectory as focus shifts from the man himself (Sylvester Stallone) to the son of one of his greatest opponents, Adonis Creed (Michael B....

Michael B. Jordan Goes For It In Creed Trailer Warner Bros. released the full trailer for the upcoming Rocky spinoff, Creed, staring Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed and Sylvester Stallone returning to the role of Rocky Balboa once more. It seems life hasn’t been easy for Adonis Creed, nor have the years been kind to Rocky since the last film, Rocky Balboa. It may also be the last days of the Italian Stallion.

Creed Trailer: This Is How You Pass a Franchise Torch Yep, it’s another Rocky sequel. How many of you didn’t know or forgot until Sylvester Stallone pops up near the end of this trailer? I think this might be the longest-running non-rebooted ongoing fiction franchise at this time — in years, that is, not installments. This is only the sixth sequel to the Best Picture-winning original, which was released nearly 40 years ago. Maybe George Romero’s Living Dead movies top it, if he makes more. And if we included nonfiction, then the Up series wins.
