I’m guessing that Rocky (1976) fans will be very excited right about now. The trailer for Creed (2015), the seventh Rocky film and spin-off from the Rocky film series just arrived and ‘promising’ is the word.
Starring Sylvester Stallone as former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa, Creed sees Balboa serve as trainer and mentor to young boxer Adonis Creed, played by rising star, Michael B. Jordan.
Fans of the Rocky films will know that Adonis Creed is the son of the late Apollo Creed, a friend to Balboa, as well as a former rival – all of which makes for an interesting dynamic between the two main characters.
I’m going to confess right now to the fact that I’ve never seen any of the Rocky movies. Yes, shock horror! However, I am contemplating finally changing that fact, and just in time to watch this new release, plus also possibly to keep FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) at bay.

Happy Film Loving
