Movie trailers should give away essential story elements from the first act just to set the stage. We don’t need to see Rocky fall ill .We don’t need to know Paulie died in-between films, though this one allows for more lenience as Rocky exclaims, “Everything I’ve got has moved on, and I’m here.” It’s a heartbreaking look at the legendary film icon as we’re shown his lonely state of mind. But this movie isn’t about Rocky. It’s about Adonis Creed, a man who never knew his father but continuously caught in his father’s shadow. A movie about a former legendary fighter and an up-and-coming boxer fighting against the odds. We know probably more than we should for this movie, but damn it if this trailer alone won’t move you to tears:
