The release of the new Rocky movie "CREED" is almost upon us. And I personally am super hyped for two reasons. The first...I have always loved the Rocky storyline since I was a kid, even Rocky V
:-) (ok I didn't LOVE Rocky V but I understood its attempt.) The second...Michael B Jordan, I mean look at the picture...need I say more? I am so proud of this young man, his career and the way he has conducted himself in public over the last 10 years that I have known him. I first met him when he was on the HBO hit show "The Wire" while I was working with two other characters on the show. Back in 2008 when our company still provided PR services (we are now strictly a media outlet), we had the pleasure of taking care of his PR services for the NAACP Image Awards (CLICK HERE TO SEE)
This video clip below (and above image) is courtesy of EPIX and shows how he had to prepare for this role and the hard work it involved. But oh my goodness...the results of his new body is amazing!
CREED opens nationwide on Weds Nov 25, 2015 the day before Thanksgiving, and the buzz and chatter about this film is very positive. I am sure I am going to be biased and say it was one of the best films ever...and let me go on record now and say..."THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST FILMS EVER! MICHAEL B JORDAN KILLED IT." But seriously, the movie is supposed to be fantastic, and after watching this video clip below, you may have a new found respect for those who have to be a sports figure in a film. It is very demanding physically and there is no stunt man that can train for you.
PS...The cover of the new Men's Fitness magazine is HOOOOTTTT. Ouch Michael B...you are hurting us ;-)
In case you missed the documentary on EPIX last week:
A very special thanks to Freddie! Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
