The trailer has been released for Creed III, the third film in the Rocky spinoff franchise which also marks star Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut. Jordan tweeted: ‘My directorial debut?! Still sounds crazy to say but there’s no film that has been more personal to me and no film I’ve felt more ready to steer. Excited to share the first trailer for Creed 3. To my cast & crew thanks for working so hard to continue the legacy of the franchise.’
Jordan is joined in the cast of Creed III by Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris, and Florian Munteanu (Rocky franchise creator Sylvester Stallone announced last April he will not be appearing in the film). The trailer picks up seven years after Creed II. Adonis Creed (Jordan) is running a gym and has a 7-year-old daughter (Mila Davis-Kent) with Bianca (Tessa Thompson). When Adonis’ childhood friend, Damian (Jonathan Majors), comes to see Adonis after getting out of prison, he initially offers to train him – but ultimately prepares to fight him in the ring.
Creed III hits theaters on March 3. 2023. Check out the trailer – here.
