Boxing drama “Creed II” is getting a 4K/Blu-ray Steelbook release from HMV
UPDATE – It has been reported that HMV have entered into administration. At the time of writing it’s not known what will happen with this release, or any pre-orders already placed, so for now we’re removing the pre-order link.
Not too long ago the Rocky franchise seemed dead in the water, but 2016’s Creed moved the story on to a new generation of characters, while still keeping those important ties to the past. Following that film’s huge box office and critical success, Creed II is now with us.
HMV are bringing us the UK steelbook release, which will include the movie on 4K and Blu-ray discs.
Release date and final art are still TBC, but pre-orders are live right now.
Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson return to star in this boxing drama sequel, a spin-off of the ‘Rocky’ film series. Despite losing his last fight, Adonis Creed (Jordan) makes his way to the top of the light heavyweight division before a shock championship win. Riding high on his new-found fame, he proposes to girlfriend Bianca (Thompson), who wants Adonis to join her in leaving Philadelphia for a new life in Los Angeles. However, Creed is drawn into a vengeful bout with Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of the man who killed his father in the ring 30 years ago. When Rocky (Stallone) refuses to train him for the big fight Creed is forced to go it alone but remains determined to finally avenge his father’s death.
