Creed is a 2015 American sports drama film written and directed by Ryan Coogler, co-written by Aaron Covington and produced by Robert Chartoff, Irwin Winkler and Sylvester Stallone.

The film stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson Creed – Apollo’s son – who travels to Philadelphia, where he meets Rocky Balboa and requests that the elder boxer train him. Stallone reprises the role of Rocky Balboa in the film.

It also features Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew and Graham McTavish. It is the seventh Rocky film, both a spin-off from the original series and the indirect successor to 2006’s Rocky Balboa, and also reunites Jordan with Fruitvale Station writer/director Coogler and also Wood Harris, whom Jordan worked with on The Wire.
