CHICAGO – “Creed” is poised to become a contender at the box office over the Thanksgiving weekend, and the new boxing film starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa and Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed (son of ex-heavyweight champion and Rocky opponent Apollo Creed) is also in the buzz of the 2015 Oscar race. The film premiered in Chicago on Nov. 12th, 2015, with a Red Carpet event at Jones College Prep High School, where a mural was unveiled as part of the ceremony.

“Creed” features Stallone and Jordan, plus Tessa Thompson as Bianca, the love interest of Adonis. The film was co-written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who released his debut film “Fruitvale” last year. Jordan, Thompson and Coogler all attended the Red Carpet opening.
