“Creed” stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed who grew up not knowing his famous father, boxing legend Apollo Creed, who died before he was born.
After a troubling past Adonis reunites with his long lost parental history and decides to stop fighting the boxing passion that runs deep in his blood. Adonis seeks out an old friend of his fathers, the one man that is said to have known his father the best, Rocky Balboa, and convinces the retired champ to get back into the ring, so to speak, and train him.
Seeing much of Apollo in Adonis, Rocky agrees to mentor him and thus Adonis’s eye of the tiger is put to the test! The Electronic Urban Reports/EUR associate Loren LoRosa got a chance to chop it up with the intrepid duo of Michael B. Jordan and Director Ryan Coogler as well as Rocky himself, the legendary Sylvester Stallone. Additionally, we spoke with another Hollywood legend and one of the “Rocky” film series’ longtime producers, Irwin Winkler. Also, singer and budding actress Janelle Monae stopped by to chat with us. Yeah baby! EUR was there handling our business on the “Creed” red carpet.
So go ahead and check out what they all had to say about the reinvention of a legendary championship story below:
