Creed | Anatomy of a Movie

AOM hosts Marisa Serafini (@SerafiniTV), Sara Stretton (@Sara_Stretton), Sean Overman (@seanaustino), and Demetri Panos (@DMovies1701) and discuss the 2015 movie Creed. The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed. Creed is a 2015 American sports drama film, written and directed by Ryan Coogler, co-written by Aaron Covington, and produced by Robert Chartoff, Irwin Winkler, and Sylvester Stallone. The film stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Johnson Creed, Apollo‘s son, with Stallone reprising the role of Rocky Balboa. It also features Tessa Thompson, Tony Bellew, and Graham McTavish. It is the seventh Rocky film, both a spin-off from the original series and a sequel to 2006’s Rocky Balboa. The film reunites Jordan with Fruitvale Station writer/director Coogler, and with Wood Harris, whom Jordan worked with on The Wire. Filming began on January 19, 2015 in Liverpool, and later also took place in Philadelphia, Rocky’s home. Creed was released in the United States on November 25, 2015, the fortieth anniversary of the date of the opening scene in the original Rocky.
