Award-winning actor Michael B. Jordan will visit South Africa at the end of November to kick off his international publicity tour for 'Creed II'.
Jordan reprises the role of Adonis Creed in this continuation of the Rocky saga and sequel to the critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing 2015 hit Creed, which took in more than $170 million at the worldwide box office. He also serves as an executive producer on the new film.
In Johannesburg, Jordan will meet with press, together with his 'Creed II' co-star Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, who portrays Adonis’ fearsome opponent Viktor Drago, and director Steven Caple Jr. (The Land). He will also greet fans at a special premiere event.
'Creed II' reunites Michael B. Jordan with Sylvester Stallone, who returns in the iconic role of Rocky Balboa.
The film also stars Tessa Thompson as Bianca, Wood Harris as Tony “Little Duke” Burton, Russell Hornsby as Buddy Marcelle, with Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne and Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago. Ryan Coogler, who directed Creed, is an executive producer on 'Creed II'.
Creed II is distributed by Empire Entertainment and will arrive in South African cinemas on 30 November.
