Under the training of Rocky Balboa, Adonis Johnson has to prove he, like his father, has the heart to be a boxing champion.

USA | 133 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Ryan Coogler

Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who died before Adonis was born. However, boxing is in his blood, so he seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks the retired champ to be his trainer. With Rocky's help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.

"A smart, kinetic, exhilaratingly well-crafted piece of filmmaking." – Andrew Barker (Variety)
