PG-13 | | Drama, Sport
The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.
Ryan Coogler, who grew up watching the Rocky films with his family, wanted to tell a personal story much like he did with Fruitvale Station (2013). The built-in fanbase and pop culture appeal was a bonus.
Hey Donnie, you moving?
Adonis Johnson: Yeah I'm going to be living with my uncle for a little bit.
Bianca: That's your uncle? He's white!
When Adonis tries on his father's shorts, there is a stain on the mirror. Later on, the stain mysteriously disappears without anyone cleaning it.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
