Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM have just released the official synopsis for Ryan Coogler’s Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson-starring ‘Rocky’ spin-off, ‘Creed.’ The synopsis for the November 25th release is as follows: Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

According to Deadline, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ ‘Divergent,’ and ‘G.I. Joe 3′ screenwriter Evan Daugherty has been set to pen the script for the upcoming ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot. Furthermore, Warner Bros. Pictures has partnered up with MGM and producer Graham King’s GK Films to distribute the film. The reboot will feature a younger Lara Croft going on her first adventure.

The original ‘Tomb Raider’ game was published in 1996 by the London-based video game company Eidos and went on to become one of the most successful video games of the time. Eidos (including Crystal Dynamics) is now part of an international interactive entertainment group, Square Enix. A pop culture phenomenon, the original ‘Tomb Raider’ games have sold over 35 million game units worldwide making Lara Croft one of the most recognized names in the gaming industry. Most recently, Square Enix released the highly-anticipated reboot of the series, simply titled ‘Tomb Raider,’ in 2013 to critical acclaim. A follow-up game, ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider,’ is due out later this year as a timed-exclusive for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
