The teaser trailer for Creed 3 has been released, and it’s immediately apparent that Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis has a soft spot in his heart for his old buddies who have been incarcerated for a very long time. Once we see that Jonathan Majors gets into the ring as Damian Anderson, it is also obvious that the old friends in question may not actually be friends with one another at all.
At the very least, this appears to be the general premise of what we see in the newly released trailer for the Rocky Balboa spin-off movie that will be released in March of 2023. Adonis “Donnie” Creed, played by Jordan, is the son of Rocky’s adversary Apollo Creed and is trying to aid a boyhood buddy but ends up getting drawn into a battle instead. On each of the two movie posters, there is a portion that reads, “You can’t run…. from your history.” And, as Damian says in a pivotal part of the promotional video, “You think you mad? Try spending the better part of your life locked up and watching other people experience it for you instead.
Jealousy. A story that has been told since the beginning of time, and a story that will bring Rocky and Creed fans back to the box office on March 3, 2023. The first instalment in the series, Creed, was a critical and commercial success, grossing 173.5 million dollars worldwide. The picture was directed by Ryan Coogler and brought in 109 million dollars in the United States and 67 million dollars elsewhere. Creed II was much more successful than that, grossing 115.7 million dollars in the United States and 98.5 million dollars overseas for a total of 214.2 million dollars globally.
It’s been seven years since we went to the theatre to watch Creed for the last time. Michael B. Jordan, who is making his directorial debut with the movie, recently participated in a roundtable discussion with members of the National Association of Black Journalists, during which he discussed the movie a little bit.
Jordan added, “I finally got to this position in my career where I wanted to tell a story and not just be in front of the camera, not just execute somebody else’s vision.” “I finally got to this stage in my career where I wanted to tell a story and not just be in front of the camera,” “And having a character that I’ve played twice before, it’s been seven or eight years living with this guy,” she continued. “And having a character that I’ve played twice before.” To be able to tell a story of where I believe Adonis is at, and also at 35 years old, I had a lot to say as a young man, as a young Black man, just about my life experiences, and how I could actually share that, share a piece of myself with the world – through these characters, and through this story. So to be able to tell a story of where I believe Adonis is at, and also through this story, I will be able to share Therefore, I simply had the impression that now was the appropriate time. You know, back when we were filming CREED I, I was chatting to Ryan Coogler, and he said something along the lines of, “It’s never the proper time.” You have to just throw caution to the wind and give it your all, don’t you know?”
