Stallone's Rocky franchise was arguably one of the most popular among audiences and a smooth run for its producers. Having made six films in the series, the makers came up with a spin-off, Creed. This film depicts Michael B Jordan as Adonis Creed.

Creed II sees Stallone come back to the silver screen as an aging Rocky who trains Adonis.

The post is a video which shows Stallone giving a speech to the cast and crew of the film. “This is probably my last rodeo,” Stallone says in the video. He describes how the series reached heights of popularity and fame, adding that Creed gave Rocky a new life in a way.
