Do you all think Creed will be an Oscar contender or an afterthought?July 1, 2015 at 6:06 pm #189359
Michael B. Jordan is a great actor. I will have to check this out.July 1, 2015 at 7:55 pm #189361

Yes! Aaaaannnnnnd….let’s be real- he looks hot as HELL in this trailer. Just sayin’…
Honey, Michael B. Jordan is sexy as fuck. I would lick him all day and all night. Yummy!July 1, 2015 at 11:24 pm #189362
Rocky Balboa has gone beyond being just an American icon, even the lesser sequels have inspired generations of fans worldwide. While another Oscar would be a crowning achievement for the franchise,the fans of these films could care less…Rocky 7 almost 40 years since the original and still a hot topic is an award in itself…July 2, 2015 at 5:14 am #189363
I would love to hear the following: “And the Oscar for best Supporting Actor goes to……..Sylvest Stallone”. Still think he should have won for the first one.July 2, 2015 at 5:55 pm #189364
I don’t doubt that, with some crying and a good screenplay, he could build the buzz all the way to the win easily.July 2, 2015 at 7:09 pm #189365
Unfortunately no matter how good the movie is I feel like the academy is just never going to take this franchise seriously again. And while the original is undoubtedly a classic it’s not like it’s universally revered as a BP winner. If it’s good, which it actually looks like it could be, I’d be thrilled to be proven wrong, but once the they make up their mind about something it usually doesn’t change.
Also really excited to see Tessa Thompson in the trailer, didn’t realize she was gonna be in the movie. She was great in Dear White People, glad to see she’s doing some big things (I know she was in selma but she had like a line or two in that)July 4, 2015 at 8:19 am #189366
I hope this movie is good. I am one of the few people who enjoyed all of the Rocky films. It pains me to know Burgess Meredith did not win an Oscar. He always made me teary eyed watching Rocky.July 4, 2015 at 10:22 am #189367
The tone seems about right but I’m not totally sold on it. The first one should’ve gone home empty handed. There’s no way Rocky is a better film than Taxi Driver or Network, nor is it better directed or written.July 4, 2015 at 11:12 am #189368
Rocky was probably chosen because of the “triumphant” theme. Many people related to Rocky and its story, plus it gave many people hope. Rocky legacy is just as important as Taxi Driver and Network.July 4, 2015 at 3:25 pm #189370
The trailer is really well made. Count me in.
