New still for Creed arrives online

There have been a couple of stills released for Ryan Coogler's Rocky spin-off Creed, but this is our first proper look at Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone, training Michael B. Jordan's (Fruitvale Station) Creed in the boxing ring.

Written by Coogler and Aaron Covington, Creed follows the exploits of Adonis Creed (Jordan), the son of Apollo, who was pummelled to death at the bloody hands of Dolph Lundgren's Ivan Drago in Rocky IV (1985). While Adonis never knew his father, he feels the fire of the boxer coursing through his veins and heads to Philadelphia to seek out Rocky Balboa (Stallone).

Hoping that Rocky will train him, Adonis battles through the older fighter's insistence that he is out of the game, and Rocky sees the strength and determination of his fierce rival and, later, closest friend in the young man. Reluctantly agreeing to help him out, he pushes Adonis towards a shot at a title, but is facing his own battles...

With Tessa Thompson (Selma), Phylicia Rashad (Frankie & Alice), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and professional boxer Tony Bellew in the cast, Creed is due to arrive in cinemas 25 November.
