The highly-anticipated boxing drama follows Adonis Creed, played by Jordan, as he faces off against Viktor Drago—the son of the man who killed his father.

Fans of the Rocky franchise will see the storyline come full circle as Adonis fights to prove himself in the ring after Ivan Drago infamously killed his father, Apollo Creed, in Rocky IV. Thompson plays Bianca—Adonis’ fiancee and mother of his child—in the film.

Creed II premieres November 21.
