The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
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.
I like the buildup of this trailer, focusing on the family drama as the big fight looms over the horizon, then revealing the name of his title opponent…..Drago. I loved the first Creed film, particularly due to Ryan Coogler’s direction, but I’m looking forward to seeing what Steven Caple Jr. does in the sequel.
Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, Florian Munteanu, Phylicia Rashad, Andre Ward, Wood Harris and Russell Hornsby.
Creed II is scheduled for cinematic release on the 21st November 2018.
