Warner Brothers and MGM followed up the release of the teaser poster for Creed II by dropping the first trailer for this highly anticipated sequel on Wednesday. Creed was critically acclaimed and praised by fans around the globe. We don’t get a great look at Adonis’s opponent (who is the son of Ivan Drago), but the tone of Creed II is evident. Here is the trailer!

For everyone who didn’t get a chance to see the summary (which was released yesterday), here is that as well.

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
