Michael B. Jordan breaks into a wicked sweat in the new Creed III poster, teasing the battle between Jordan and Jonathan Majors.
You should grab an umbrella before you check out the new Creed III poster because droplets of sweat are coming from Adonis Creed’s body like a fine mist. The third chapter of the Rocky spinoff is ready to throw down in theaters next month on March 3. However, we still have a few weeks left for the film’s promotional push before Jordan and his co-star, Jonathan Majors, throw down. In other words, let the PR blitz continue!
Here’s the plot synopsis for Creed III:
After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) thrived in his career and family. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damian (Jonathan Majors), resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face-off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damian – a fighter with nothing to lose.
Michael B. Jordan directs Creed III from a story by Ryan Coogler, Keenan Coogler, and Zach Baylin. Keenan Coogler and Baylin wrote the screenplay. Creed III continues the story of Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, who trained under the legendary Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).
Joining Jordan, Tessa Thompson (Bianca Creed), and Mila Davis-Kent (Amara Creed) in Creed III are Jonathan Majors, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia Rashad. The threequel marks Jordan’s directorial debut.
Speaking with Deadline at Sundance, Majors said he took real punches from Jordan while filming Creed III. “I took a couple, I think. I loved it. I’m just so humbled by the opportunity to be a part of the Rocky franchise. Sly, Michael B. Jordan, it’s like, if I’m gonna be in that lineage, even as a baddie, I wanna go for it. So, yeah, [Michael] might caught me a few times. I took some body shots, and gave out a few, too.”
