Creed and Secret in Their Eyes Trailers
As a lifelong resident of the greater Philadelphia region, the Rocky franchise has always been embedded in my culture. In 2015 the iconic series will receive a face-lift from budding filmmaker, Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), with the latest inclusion, Creed. Michael B. Jordan stars as Adonis Creed, the son of fallen former heavyweight champion Apollo Creed. And as the youngster gets his boxing career off the ground, he turns to Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) to help train and take him to the next level. The Rocky franchise has been down for the count over the last couple decades, but perhaps the November release, Creed, can rejuvenate the series.
Another debut trailer was recently unveiled, this time it's for Billy Ray's crime-thriller, Secret in Their Eyes. Boasting an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), the film follows a group of tight-knit FBI investigators and a District Attorney who experience inner turmoil after one of their children are murdered. In the vein of Law Abiding Citizen, the killer walks free and the mother of the victim seeks vengeance on the perpetrator while the rest of the team tries to interject and bring him down lawfully. Arriving in theaters in October, check out the first look into Secret in Their Eyes.
