A new trailer for Creed II, this Thanksgiving's surefire megahit, is out.
Fans can expect an even "bigger" film with the sequel to Ryan Coogler's 2015 critical and box office smash, per star Michael B. Jordan. "It's always tough to shoot a number two to anything, but we wanted to do a fresh take," he told the Toronto Sun earlier this month. "We didn't have a real villain the first time around. That was more of an origin story with Adonis fighting himself to figure out who he was. This time, I think we found the perfect vehicle to build on that and take it to the next level."
As for the story at the center of director Steven Caple Jr.'s sequel, co-penned by Cheo Hodari Coker and franchise creator Sylvester Stallone, Jordan said fans should not be expecting a revenge-focused film. "It's not just about revenge," he said. "It's about a lot of things... If we get that lesson across, then I think we've made a pretty special movie."
Creed II also stars Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, Stallone, and more. The sequel hits theaters Nov. 21. Up top, catch the new trailer.
Jordan most recently starred in HBO's Ray Bradbury-adapting Fahrenheit 451 alongside Michael Shannon. Following its May premiere via all HBO platforms, the Ramin Bahrani-directed film received the Blu-Ray/DVD treatment just last week.
