Adonis squares off against a terrifying Viktor Drago in Creed 2's latest trailer

Michael B. Jordan sweats, bleeds, and punches his ever-loving heart out in the latest trailer for Creed 2, Steven Caple Jr.’s sequel to Ryan Coogler’s 2015 original. Here we get a deeper, ultra-intense look at Adonis Creed’s rage after being challenged to a fight by Viktor Drago (actual boxer Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu), the son of the man who killed his father, as well as the ways in which his support system—Phylicia Rashad’s Mary Anne, Tessa Thompson’s Bianca, and, of course, Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky—try to talk him down from it. Dolph Lundgren, by the way, still looks like a goddamned beast as the villainous Ivan Drago.

Creed II will sock you right in the heart when it hits theaters on November 21.
