Creed II: Rocky Balboa and Michael B. Jordan star in exclusive clip

Adonis "Donnie" Creed is back and the stakes are higher than ever before.

In Creed II, the son of the Rocky franchise's Apollo Creed, played by Michael B Jordan, will face an opponent who also happens to be the son of a famous boxer: Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who killed Adonis's father and was later defeated by Rocky (Sylvester Stallone).

Adonis must now draw on the training and guidance of Rocky to avenge his father's death, while Ivan, in turn, hopes to regain his honour through Viktor.

Tessa Thompson also returns as Adonis's girlfriend, Bianca, now the mother of his child, whose progressive hearing loss continues to threaten her career as a singer-songwriter.

Stallone both co-writes and produces on the sequel, which is directed by Steven Caple, Jr. It also stars Wood Harris as Tony “Little Duke” Burton, Russell Hornsby as Buddy Marcelle, and Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne.

2015's Creed, directed by Ryan Coogler, landed Stallone a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards. Creed II will released in UK cinemas on 30 November.
