Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Warner Bros. Pictures “Creed II,” a sequel to the 2015 “Creed” movie, which garnered over 170 million dollars of box office revenue worldwide, as well as the “Rocky” series, one of the most popular franchises at world level.

“Creed II” premieres in Romania on November 23, being distributed by Forum Film Romania. 

Rocky’s legacy

The first film “Creed” did something that seemed impossible: to revive Rocky’s story and to carry on the legacy of the name that wrote history, while keeping the character of the series, but also introducing the exact characters needed.With the advent of Adonis “Donnie” Creed, the illegitimate son of the great Apollo Creed champion, a close friend of Rocky Balboa, the Saga producers succeed in returning to one of the great themes of the series: seeking and struggling to become a young man in the beginning of road.Exactly the theme that made the first “Rocky”, released with a great box office success in 1976, one of the most popular movies of all time. At that time, the film received 10 Oscar nominations (and won three categories), basically releasing Sylvester Stallone’s career.

After the series of six films from 1976-2006, the producers have somehow sought to return to their origins, but also to propel new themes that have not been fixed so far, such as what it means to be a father.

“It was a sensational idea to have a character like Adonis Creed, played so well by Michael B. Jordan, and see how he’s evolving in the future, what relationship he’s developing with Rocky, Bianca, his adoptive mother, and how she does celebrity, “ says Irwin Winkler, who produced all the films in this series.
