So. Many. Chills. 

The first trailer for upcoming Rocky spinoff Creed just debuted and it's nothing short of intense. Scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 25, Creed stars Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa's (Sylvester Stallone) former enemy in the octagon, Apollo Creed. Though Apollo died before Jordan's character was born, boxing runs through his blood, leaving him no choice but to seek out Stallone as a potential trainer. 

"I've been fighting my whole life. It's not a choice for me," the Fantastic Four star explains in the trailer. "Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own."

It's not until Stallone finds Jordan standing in his restaurant looking at an old photo of his father and Rocky duking it out that it gets real. 

"I heard about a third fight between you and Apollo, behind closed doors," Jordan tells Stallone.

"How do you know all this?" the 68-year-old actor asks, to which Jordan dramatically responds, "I'm his son."


Jordan and Stallone are joined by Dear White People's Tessa Thompson, Jordan's fellow The Wire alum Wood Harris and The Cosby Show's Phylicia Rashad. Check out the trailer above!
