The Rocky spinoff comes full circle in its sequel as Adonis Johnson (Jordan) prepares to face off against the son of Ivan Drago, the man who killed his father, Apollo Creed, in Rocky IV.
The trailer gives little of the action away, serving mainly as a training montage for Jordan's character and highlighting his family life with Tessa Thompson's character, Bianca. But hey, we aren't complaining about getting to see Jordan skin-tight thermals, training underwater, and staring forlornly out a window.
Oh, and that mountain of a man playing Drago's son? That's actual Romanian heavyweight Boxer Florian Munteanu, whose nickname is "Big Nasty." Looking at his Instagram, we can see why.
Creed II opens this Thanksgiving.
