Creed II is a 2018 American sports drama film directed by Steven Caple Jr. and written by Sylvester Stallone (who wrote all the scenes with Rocky Balboa in both Creed films) and Juel Taylor from a story by Sascha Penn and Cheo Hodari Coker.
A sequel to 2015’s Creed and the eighth installment in the Rocky film series, it stars Michael B. Jordan, Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, Florian Munteanu, Wood Harris and Phylicia Rashad. Creed writer-director Ryan Coogler serves as an executive producer on the film.
The film follows a fight over 33 years in the making, as Adonis “Donnie” Creed meets a new adversary in the ring: Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Drago, the powerful athlete who took the life of Donnie’s father Apollo Creed in 1985’s Rocky IV. Against the wishes of trainer Rocky Balboa, Apollo’s son Adonis Johnson accepts a challenge from Drago’s son — another dangerous fighter.
Under guidance from Rocky, Adonis trains for the showdown of his life — a date with destiny that soon becomes his obsession. Now, Johnson and Balboa must confront their shared legacy as the past comes back to haunt each man.
