Sylvester Stallone still has plenty of fight left in him! He's bringing heavyweight Rocky Balboa back to the big screen again.
But this time, Rocky isn't the main attraction.
"Creed" focuses on the son of Rocky's late rival-turned-friend Apollo Creed, and it sees the 68-year-old actor take on a supporting role alongside star Michael B. Jordan. Still, as a new trailer reveals, Rocky steals the show.
In the last minute of the trailer, the former champ steps out of the shadows and takes on his new role — as Creed's trainer.
But even in the scenes where he's out of sight, Rocky somehow remains there in spirit — from Creed's run through the streets in a gray sweatsuit to his borrowed words of wisdom.
"It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward," Creed says, quoting the great man.
The first "Rocky" film, written by Stallone, came out in 1976. "Creed" is the seventh film in the franchise, and it hits theaters this fall.
