Michael. B. Jordan is Adonis Johnson and Sylvester Stallone is Rocky Balboa in upcoming drama 'Creed.'
A legacy is more than a name in upcoming drama which stars Michael. B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa.
Others in the movie include Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad.
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer.
Rocky sees much of Apollo in Adonis, and agrees to mentor him, even as he battles an opponent deadlier than any in the ring. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, 'Creed' is produced by Stallone, and is due in theaters November 25.
