Get your first look at Michael B. Jordan's directorial debut Creed III with a just-released trailer, below.

The third film in the Creed franchise sees Adonis Creed (Jordan) thriving in his career and his family life, too, but when a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy (played by Jonathan Majors) resurfaces after serving time in prison, the two end up facing off in the ring. This is because the friend, Damian, wants to prove that he deserves his shot at a higher status. 

"We were like brothers. I was the best, though, but I never got a chance to prove that," Damian says in the trailer.

He served 18 years (his whole adult life) after getting caught by police for a crime that Adonis did seem to be involved in and now feels like he owes Damian for.

Now, when the two fight, it's really a battle because Adonis' future is on the line and he's taking on someone who has nothing to lose.

The movie also stars Wood Harris, Florian Munteanu, and Phylicia Rashad. Jordan directs a script from Keenan Coogler and Zach Baylin from a story by Ryan Coogler, Keenan Coogler, and Zach Baylin. Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Ryan Coogler, Elizabeth Raposo, Jonathan Glickman, Sylvester Stallone, and Jordan serve as producers.

Creed has a Metascore of 82, and Creed II has a Metascore of 66. The third film is not yet out for review. It is expected in theaters on March 3, 2023.
