Rocky

Rocky is a series of American boxing drama films premiering in 1976. The first film and its five sequels centered on the boxing career of the eponymous fictional character, Rocky Balboa staring Sylvester Stallone. For the seventh and eighth spin-off-sequels Creed in 2015 and Creed II in 2018, the series shifted towards Adonis Creed played by Michael B. Jordan, the son of Rocky's deceased rival and friend Apollo Creed played by Carl Weathers, as the titular boxer with the now-retired Rocky appearing as his trainer.
