Seconds out as MGM has just dropped the hugely-anticipated trailer for Creed III, the third installment in the successful franchise which this time also sees Michael B. Jordan coming out of his corner with his directorial debut.
Helmed by Jordan, from a screenplay written by Keenan Coogler & Zach Baylin, the film finds Adonis Creed thriving in both his career and family life after having spent the last seven years of his life living out the wildest dreams of his life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian (Jonathan Majors – Da 5 Bloods, “Lovecraft Country”), resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter who has nothing to lose.
Creed III also stars Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia Rashad.
CREED III releases in theaters and IMAX on March 3 2023.
