"Creed II" centers on Adonis' showdown with Viktor Drago, son of Soviet boxer Ivan Drago, who was fighting Creed when he died. "You've got everything to lose. #creed2 I'm also dropping the trailer tomorrow!", the actor wrote alongside the one-sheet, adding that the official trailer for the Creed sequel will drop on Wednesday.

The trailer opens with Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) - donning his father Apollo's signature American flag shorts - crashing to the ground in the ring, followed by the deep voice of Rocky (Sylvester Stallone), who says, "In the ring, you got rules". His last film before Creed, entitled Rocky Balboa, was a feeble attempt at breathing life back into the franchise in 2006.

Directed by Steven Caple Jr., and written by Stallone, and co-starring Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Andre Ward, and Wood Harris, Creed II will enter the theatrical ring on November 21. The movie is directed by Steven Caple Jr., who previously made the acclaimed 2016 indie hit The Land.
