Warner Bros. have set new release dates for two of their upcoming films. The "Rocky" spin-off film "Creed" and the upcoming "Point Break" remake.
"Creed" stars Michael B. Jordan (Fantastic Four) as Adonis Creed, the grandson of the late Apollo Creed. The film also stars Rocky Balboa himself, Sylvester Stallone, who in the film will train Adonis Creed, who aspires to become a boxing champion despite his families apprehensions. Michael B. Jordan is re-teaming with his "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler.
"Creed" will now hit theaters on November 25th 2015, instead of early 2016. It will be going up against Pixar's "The Good Dinosaur" and Ridley Scott's sci-fi drama "The Martian".
Also, with a new release date is the "Point Break" remake, the movie NOBODY asked for! The film stars Luke Bracey (The November Man) and Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us From Evil). The plot is basically the same as the original film directed by Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow. A college football prodigy turned FBI Agent infiltrates a gang of bank robbers obsessed with extreme sports.
The film also stars Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Ray Winstone (Noah). It is directed by Ericson Core, who's last big film was "Daredevil", so take from that what you will. "Point Break" now hits theaters on December 25th, one week after "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".
