Viktor is played by Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, a Romanian boxer who stands at a staggering 6’4” cutting an ominous figure in the boxing ring.
The trailer for Creed II shows Creed has a lot to lose should he fail in his fight against Drago, whose father killed Creed’s dad Apollo in the 1985 sequel Rocky IV.
Now with a child and a partner (played by Tessa Thompson), Creed’s trainer and friend of his father Rocky Balboa (played by Sylvester Stallone) warns him to walk away from this fight.
Ivan has trained Viktor to be the ultimate fighter, for what seems like the sole purpose of regaining his family honour and getting revenge on Rocky, the man who took it away.
How to watch the full movie online? Is it legal?
Unfortunately for those looking to watch the film at home, any site purporting to be showing Creed II will more than likely be illegal so steer clear.
Creed II will be released in cinemas on November 30.
After its run in the cinema, the epic fighting movie will be available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray.
Although, no release date for this has been announced.
For those wanting to keep things digital, a HD download on Amazon Video and iTunes will be available at a later point.
But again no release date has been announced.
For streamers, Netflix, Sky and Amazon may get their hands on the film once it is released on DVD.
Reviews of Creed II have been mixed, with some dubbing it “depressing” whilst others label it “a rousing tale.”
One site singing the films praises was Entertainment Weekly saying: “The Land director Steven J Caple Jr has made a rousing tale about fathers and sons, guilt and redemption, loneliness and family – just the sort of big, sledgehammer-subtle themes that have always propelled the series.”
The first Creed movie, released in 2015, garnered critical acclaim and several award nominations.
Creed helped to launch the career of Michael B Jordan ahead of his evil role as Kilmonger in the hit Marvel movie Black Panther.
The official plot synopsis says: “Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family.
“Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”
Creed 2 will be released in cinemas on November 30, 2018.
