Dolph Lundgren As Ivan Drago In Creed II

In Creed II Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) finds himself staring across the ring at Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu). The stakes are higher than they have ever been, and a fight has never been more personal. That’s because Viktor is of course the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), who fought Adonis’s father Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in Rocky IV before going on to face Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone).

MGM has released a new promo video for Creed II, which takes a closer look at the return of Ivan Drago. It offers a little more information on why this fight means so much to him.

You can find the video below along with some other recently released promos for the movie.

Sylvester Stallone to Direct Creed 2

Ryan Coogler continued the legacy of the Rocky films with Creed, a sequel that focused on Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), and his journey upward in the world of boxing with Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) acting as his mentor. The film helped Stallone get nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, and soon enough there was interest in a sequel.

Now it looks like they found their director. Stallone, who helped bring the Rocky franchise to life as well as reinvigorate it with his performance in Creed, will direct Creed 2. More on the story below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Blu-ray banner

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital HD
Written & Directed by James Gunn
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Walt Disney Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 22, 2017

By 2014, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an unstoppable juggernaut. Still relishing in the success of 2012’s The Avengers making over $1.5 billion at the box office, the MCU took a chance on a rag tag group of not-so familiar superheroes, The Guardians of the Galaxy. For 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn (Slither) blended the perfect mixture of action and comedy, and made some of the best gambles in the history of film casting. The doofus from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler, Vin Diesel to voice a walking tree who says three words… this bizarre recipe generated $773 million in domestic profits and proved that the MCU was borderline infallible. Guardians just felt different from the other good, yet generic superhero outings and it remains one of the most beloved films of its genre.

Yondu and Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Director: James Gunn
Screenwriter: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: May 5, 2017

James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy was once considered one of the riskiest films that Marvel Studios could ever release. It was an unknown property which cast three relative unknowns and gave two A-listers voice roles. However, the film’s surprising success proved that a quirky, hilarious, musically-charged space opera could work as a superhero property. Who would have thought a roguish space outlaw, an alien assassin, an alien manic, a gun-toting raccoon, and a talking tree would be our favorite a-holes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Now they are back for round two in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all sequels to a universally loved film, expectations run unbelievably high. Fortunately, Gunn never misses a beat. It’s absolutely terrific and just as fun, if not more fun, than the first. But it’s also one of the few Marvel films that’s emotionally driven. Check out my full review below.

The Original ‘Rocky’ Is 40 Years Old? Absolutely

Rocky Poster

Rocky, the 1976 film in which a down on his luck boxer gets an improbable shot at the World Championship, and made a superstar and eventual Hollywood legend into its star and writer Sylvester Stallone, celebrates its 40th anniversary today.

Originally released in the United States on November 21, 1976, Rocky gave a jolting uppercut to the industry that was only just handling what a true blockbuster was thanks to the overwhelming success of JAWS, released about 15 months prior. Before that, films in Hollywood that weren’t Best Picture winners were gritty and tough with uneasy and uncensored narratives, awash with characters and plots that didn’t always end sunny and resolute. With Rocky, there was a re-ushering in the industry and the theaters of the type of story that hadn’t existed since the heyday of these types of films churned out in the 1940s, where boxers were Palooka Joe-style guys who had mob ties and odds that they always overcame by the last reel. Whereas the genre became a dried-up dime a dozen by the mid-20th century, Rocky was a fresh jolt in the arm of Hollywood. Only the most curmudgeonly critics couldn’t be swayed by their built-in cynicism to give it the free pass of the fresh air that it deserved for being the kind of necessarily for the times throwback film that it was.

Rumor: Elizabeth Debicki To Play Main Villain In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’

Elizabeth Debicki

The Marvel rumor mill can’t seem to stop spinning. Following the rumor that Thor: Ragnarok will incorporate the “Planet Hulk” story arc, comes rumors about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The sequel is currently filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, and we still know very little about it aside from the fact that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) are probably protecting the galaxy while causing all sorts of trouble.

As little as we know about the plot, we even know less about the new actors that will be joining the cast for the sequel. Aside from the fact that Pom Klementieff will play Mantis, Chris Sullivan is Taserface, Tommy Flanagan will be Tullk, we know that Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell will star in the film as well with one of them presumably playing Star-Lord’s long-lost father, but that is just speculation. This new rumor is centered on Elizabeth Debicki (The Night Manager) and the character she will be playing. More on the story below.
