Awesome: Creed

The film

  • The first half of the trailer seems like a fairly generic underdog movie. Then Adonis starts talking about his father Apollo and Sylvester Stallone steps out of the shadows, and you suddenly realize this is a Rocky movie.
  • The trailer's opening scene, with Adonis psyching himself up by punching the wall before heading out to the ring, with Ryan Coogler's stark, dramatic direction making quite an impact.
