Recently MGM and Warner Bros. Pictures flew me to Philadelphia for the official Creed II press junket. They flew in press from around the country to watch the film and interview the cast. They spoiled us with a great hotel, room service, a cool reception and even a field trip to the infamous Rocky steps.
Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place. It’s a beautiful love story about family. New beginnings, healing and forgiveness are three emotional backdrops that make Creed II a must see for all ages. The infamous one-liners from Rocky 4 made watching Creed II like a trip down memory lane.
Lastly, the music was dope. Mike Will Made It smashed the soundtrack, which includes appearances by Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Pharrell, Jaden Smith and more.
Creed II stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad, and Dolph Lundgren. If you’re an indie filmmaker, grab your notebook. You don’t want to miss the jewels shared in my interview with the director, Steven Caple Jr.
Put Creed II on your Thanksgiving plans!
