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.
The Swedish born Ludwig Göransson, who also scored Fruitvale Station (2013), worked to find a contemporary soundtrack that mirrored the iconic songs from the previous films. He also focused on giving Adonis his own theme.
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 rocky is in the basement of the restaurant talking to Creed about the fight Rocky's sweat shirt zipper goes up then comes down then up again.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
SPOILER: In the final theatrical release of the film, Adonis Creed loses the fight to Pretty Ricky Conlan by split decision, mirroring the end of the original Rocky. However, another ending was filmed in which Creed wins the fight. This will presumably be included as a bonus feature on the eventual DVD release.
