Godzilla might have some company for best trailer of 2018. Dear god.
Anyone else sign up for boxing lessons today? If this trailer and his highness Lord DMX didn’t get you all sorts of fired up, well you simply have no soul. This is it, I’ve didn’t know it when I woke up this morning, but I have been waiting my entire life for this. Seeing how Rocky 4 is one of the most rewatchable movies of all time, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this movie.
People like myself have had Rocky in their lives since the day they were born, others grew up with him. For a ton of people, he is one of the greatest movie characters to ever step foot on the big screen. When Creed was announced, these people (myself included) didn’t know if this would translate well onto the screen. We all know how that turned out. Creed blew us all away and we all wanted more of this universe. We also know how I tweeted Michael B Jordan 10 seconds after I watched Creed and ask him if he knew if Ivan Drago ever had a son. Well now 3 years later, not only did he have a son, but he’s about to go toe-to-toe with Adonis Creed. Seeing Rocky and Ivan on the screen together again will be so goddamn legendary, and I don’t know if I’m ready to say goodbye to Rocky just yet. Can you say Rocky ghost? Does Rocky die halfway through this thing, but he’s there in spirit? I don’t know, but I have a feeling by the time the end credits hit, Rocky won’t be around. I hope that’s not the case because this will no doubt be a trilogy, so not having him around for the final chapter wouldn’t be ideal, in my opinion.
I just need this in my life right now, and I watched this trailer ten plus times today.
