Newark NJ's Michael B. Jordan is back in the latest trailer for another 'Rocky (Philadelphia) movie "Creed II." also filmed scenes in and around Phila.
The sequel to the 2015 "Rocky" film "Creed" sees the return of Jordan, 31, as Adonis "Creed" Johnson, son of former Rocky opponent Apollo Creed, and Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role.
This time around, Johnson takes the next-generation story to new heights as he squares off in the ring against Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Drago, villain of the 1985 film "Rocky IV." Apollo Creed collapsed and died in the ring after being battered by Drago during his final fight. ("If he dies, he dies," a stone-cold Drago said after his win.)
Dolph Lundgren reprises the role of the Soviet fighter, while Romanian boxer Florian Munteanu plays the younger Drago. In the trailer, Stallone's Rocky Balboa warns Johnson against fighting Drago, calling the Soviet fighter's son the product of hate.
"He broke things in me that ain't never been fixed," Stallone says of the elder Drago.
