New Creed 3 Trailer Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Jonathan Majors
The third film in the “Rocky” spinoff franchise hits theaters on March 3.
Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors keep getting better. The final trailer for “Creed III” dropped on Wednesday, showing the two stars in training montages and some knockout fights.
In the third installment of the “Rocky” spinoff film series, Jordan plays the title character, boxing star Adonis Creed. Now flourishing in his career and family life, Adonis reunites with Damian (Majors), a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy who has served a long prison sentence and is eager to prove himself in the ring. The two quickly develop a bitter and heated rivalry that forces Adonis to confront his past mistakes.
“Creed III” follows the first two films in the “Rocky” sequel series, which were released in 2015 and 2018 to positive reviews and box office success. The film has already been screened by critics, with initial reactions praising Majors’ performance and Michael B. Jordan’s work in his directorial debut.
Michael B. Jordan, as a debut director, does an admirable job directing CREED 3. While his performance is among his best, the IMAX-shot boxing scenes are downright awesome. Jonathan Majors brings raw power and charisma to the personal story of two friends turned enemies pic.twitter.com/TV7REfEhuf

Creed 3 is an intense emotional journey. Michael B Jordan’s great directorial debut paired with impressive performances from Thompson and scene-stealer Jonathan Majors. The fight scenes are fantastic. A few times I wondered where Rocky was, but it never took away from the story.

CREED III is a great directorial debut from MBJ. It freshens up the franchise and takes the fight sequences to the next level in IMAX, although the standout moments are outside the ring. I don’t know where the movie ranks among the 3, but they are all great. #Creed3 #CreedIII pic.twitter.com/myVylWQUi3

#Creed3 pretty solid. Especially researching this stage of Adonis’ career/life. I liked the addition of Mila Davis-Kent and my god Jonathan Majors is wild. I haven’t seen Ant-Man yet, but seeing it in Magazine Dreams really makes it something else. pic.twitter.com/QSK2B8b5yy

Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu and Phylicia Rashad all reprise their roles from the first two films of the sequel. Jordan is directing Creed III, following Steven Caple Jr. and Ryan Coogler, who directed the first two films. Coogler developed the film’s story with his brother Keenan Coogler, who wrote the screenplay with Zach Baylin. The film is the first in the “Rocky” series without Sylvester Stallone as the iconic boxing hero, though he continues to produce alongside Jordan, Coogler, Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Elizabeth Raposo and Jonathan Glickman. MGM Pictures is distributing the film.
