Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors seem to really share a brotherhood after filming the third installment of CREED. During their press run, Majors expressed how trust was very important for them to get it right
The actor later expressed that the role took a lot of training within the boxing lexicon, as well as, the CREED franchise. “As an actor approaching it, I looked at both characters’ journeys and where they were going. Michael was so honest and exciting as a filmmaker about what he wanted to do with the story, that he wanted to do something different from the canonical themes established already. But at the same time, he wanted to honor the legacy of ‘Rocky’ and the previous ‘Creed’ films.”
CREED III takes us on a journey after Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) dominates the boxing world and has been thriving in both his career and family life. 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 who has nothing to lose. Creed III is the third installment in the successful franchise and is Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut.
Jordan & Majors have been wowing us on the big screen with films like Black Panther, Just Mercy, The Harder They Fall, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania . It was nice to see these talented stars come together on this film.
The actors in CREED III really do a good job showcasing how we handle and communicate our emotions as a part of our exploration of our inner self, which is something Jordan was striving for.
You can’t run from your past, but you can definietly run to the theaters and see CREED III. The film releases in the US on Friday, March 3rd.
