Adonis and Rocky take on the Russians in the sequel.
The Drago family is back to try and break another American fighter in the first trailer for "Creed II."
This time, Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Creed (son of Carl Weathers' "Rocky" character Apollo Creed) will face off against Viktor Drago (son of Dolph Lundgren's "Rocky IV" villain Ivan Drago).
33-year-old spoiler alert: Ivan's the fighter who killed Apollo in the ring, spawning the infamous quote from the 1985 film, ""If he dies, he dies."
While Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) already got revenge on the Soviet boxer by knocking him out cold in Drago's homeland, it now appears to be Adonis' turn to do the same. Romanian boxer Florian "Big Nasty" Munteanu will play Ivan's son in the film, in which Lundgren will also appear.
Here's the officials synopsis from MGM an Warner Bros:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history.
Stars Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Phylicia Rashad and Andre Ward return for the sequel, while Steven Caple Jr. takes over directing duties from Ryan Coogler.
"Creed II" hits theaters November 21.
