Jonathan Majors is here, too, and we definitely have some thoughts on the evolution of these movies and where they might go next. Also, Jon is back from his vacation in Japan, so take a look at this week’s theme music. It’s about as subtle as a Rocky movie.

YOU CAN’T RUN FROM YOUR PAST. After dominating the boxing world, Adonis Creed has been thriving in both his career and family life. When a childhood friend and former boxing prodigy, Damien Anderson, resurfaces after serving a long sentence in prison, he is eager to prove that he deserves his shot in the ring. The face-off between former friends is more than just a fight. To settle the score, Adonis must put his future on the line to battle Damien – a fighter who has nothing to lose. [Source: Letterboxd]
