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.
This is the first Rocky film that Sylvester Stallone did not write. Ryan Coogler penned the script along with Aaron Covington. They both consulted the star while developing the story, in order to nail down Rocky's voice.
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!
After leaving the dressing room to enter the arena at Goodison Park, Merseyside, England, an American exit sign with red text can be seen above the door. UK exit signs are green with a pictorial of a man and a door. This was clearly not shot it the UK.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
