Creed"I've been fighting my whole life. It's not a choice for me," says Michael B. Jordan in the new trailer for "Creed," a spinoff of the "Rocky" franchise.

Indeed, fighting is in Adonis Johnson's DNA. He's the son of Rocky's (Sylvester Stallone) one-time foe, heavyweight champion Apollo Creed. His father is dead, and Adonis has been in and out of juvie multiple times. But he gets a shot to live up to his heritage when Rocky steps in to train him.
The "Rocky" franchise has spawned many sequels, but this looks like a reboot that could carry it into new generations. Jordan is as magnetic and charismatic as ever, as he re-teams with his "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler. And dare we say, Stallone shows off some decent emotional acting chops.

"Creed" also stars Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, and Anthony Bellew, and opens in theaters November 25.
