PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures on Wednesday released the official trailer for "Creed II."

The film, in theaters Nov. 21, is directed by Stephen Caple Jr. and stars Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson.

The story, set in Philadelphia, will center on Adonis Creed training for his next big fight against an opponent with ties to his family’s past. Promotional materials say he and Rocky Balboa will confront their shared legacy. The last images in the trailer show a fighter with the name "Drago" on his belt, and Dolph Lundgren, who was spotted in Philadelphia during filming in March, is listed in the credits, so it looks like audiences can expect a throwback to 1985's "Rocky IV."
