‘Creed II’ Goes Digital in February
Creed II comes out swinging
“Creed II” will release on Digital HD next month. The popular sequel will first release on Digital on February 12th, followed by the 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD release on March 5th. That’s only a few weeks away, and the new release should give fans something new to stream as we all fight off the long winter nights before the Spring.
“Creed II” stars Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, reprising their roles as Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa. The film also stars Tessa Thompson (“Thor: Ragnarok”), Phylicia Rashad (“Steel Magnolias”), Wood Harris (“Remember the Titans”), Andre Ward, Florian Munteanu (“Bogat”), Russell Hornsby (“The Hate U Give”) and Dolph Lundgren (“The Expendables” movies).
“Creed II” did very well in theaters, bringing in $35M on opening weekend before grossing over $166M worldwide. The original film in the growing franchise had a $29M opening and made over $173M.
While Ryan Coogler wrote and directed the first installment, Steven Caple Jr. directed “Creed II” from an original screenplay co-written by Juel Taylor and Stallone. The story is from Sascha Penn and Cheo Hodari Coker. The film is based on characters originally created by Stallone.
Audiences and Critics seemed to agree on the film, with “Creed II” sitting at 83% on RottenTomatoes with Critics, and 84% with fans.
The studio teased the film stating, “Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”
