This Movie Is About.
Creed III is a 2023 American sports drama film directed by and starring Michael B. Jordan (in his directorial debut) from a screenplay by Keenan Coogler and Zach Baylin. It is the sequel to Creed II (2018), the third in the Creed film series, and the ninth overall in the Rocky film series. It also stars Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu and Phylicia Rashad. In the film, the accomplished and recently retired boxer Adonis Creed (Jordan) comes face-to-face with his childhood friend and former boxing prodigy Damian Anderson (Majors).
A third Creed film was officially announced in September 2019, alongside Jordan's return; he was also confirmed to be making his directorial debut in October 2020. Majors and the remainder of the cast joined between November 2021 and September 2022; Creed III is the first film in the series not to feature Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa, though he is credited as a producer alongside Ryan Coogler, who contributed to the film's story. Principal photography began in January 2022 and lasted until that April, with filming locations including Los Angeles, Tampa, and Georgia.
Creed III first premiered in Mexico City on February 9, 2023. It was then theatrically released in the United States on March 3 as the first film distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer after its acquisition by Amazon. The film received positive reviews from critics and has grossed $225 million worldwide, making it the fourth-highest grossing film of 2023.
