I can just hear the Rocky theme now. ba bah ba ba bah bah bah ba ba bahhhh

This is one of those movies I’m slightly worried about. The trailer looks great, reunite Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler with Michael B Jordan and how could you go wrong? Well messing around with Rocky’s story that’s how. It finished with Rocky Balboa and lets keep it this way. I don’t want to hear that he has cancer or something. Make him Creed Jnr’s trainer and be done with it.

Outside of that concern, what is not to like here? It’s the dream about coming from the bottom to rise to the top with the addition of boxing. I’ll be ring side on opening day for this!

Here is the official synopsis:

The film explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.
Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.
