Sylvester Stallone on Creed 2 first poster: Knockout

Creed 2: Adonis Johnson vs. Viktor Drago

Boxing drama Creed 2 hits the theaters in Australia on November 22. The release follows the premiere in the US scheduled a day earlier.


In April, on the first day of filming, Sylvester Stallone presented a new King of the Ring, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). The first official poster of the film has been released this week by MGM and Warner Bros.

Stallone, who appears in the film as the legendary Rocky Balboa, also shared the image on his Instagram. The Hollywood boxing icon described the feature in one word – Knockout.

Creed 2 follows the first film. Adonis Johnson is a newly crowned light heavyweight champion. Under guidance of Rocky Balboa he squares off against Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu). The latter is the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the former Soviet boxer who killed Johnson’s father Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in the ring in 1985 (Rocky IV).

The cast also includes Tessa Thompson portraying Bianca. She is Adonis’s girlfriend, who is a singer and songwriter. She has progressive hearing loss.

In addition to the first poster and synopsis, the first official trailer is expected this week.
