The sons of Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago will pick up where their fathers left off more than 30 years ago. MGM and Warner Bros Pictures released the second trailer of Creed II, the sequel to the 2015 Rocky spinoff.

In Creed, Adonis Johnson, the son of Balboa rival-turned-mentor Apollo Creed, leaves behind a life of privilege to walk in the footsteps of a father he never knew.

In Creed II, Michael B Jordan returns as Adonis, with Sylvester Stallone by his side as former heavyweight champ and trainer Rocky Balboa. This time around, it is personal as his opponent is Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) — the Soviet boxer who killed Apollo Creed in Rocky IV. Determined to seek revenge against a dangerous opponent, Adonis struggles to find balance between his personal obligations (with a pregnant girlfriend) and the next big fight.

And as Balboa warns about the fight against the Drago clan, “He broke things in me that ain’t never been fixed. It ain’t worth it.” But it looks highly unlikely Adonis is going to listen.

Creed II is directed by Steven Caple Jr. Tessa Thompson reprises her role as Adonis's girlfriend Bianca and Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Andre Ward and Phylicia Rashad make up the rest of the cast. Creed II, the eighth film in the Rocky franchise, is scheduled to open in theaters on 21 November.
