Hot on the heels of winning ‘Best Villain’ at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend for his turn in the mega-hit super-hero movie, Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan is giving you ‘bah-dee’ on the newly released poster for the upcoming Creed II.
We have to wait until Thanksgiving for the 31-year-old to once again put his stacked AF body on display in boxing trunks when returns to his critically acclaimed role as boxer “Adonis Creed.”
The official artwork, trailer and synopsis were just released for the sequel which hits theaters November 21.
In the new film, Adonis seems determined to avenge the death of his father, Apollo Creed, by taking on the son of Ivan Drago (played by Dolph Lundgren) who killed Adonis’ father in a charity fight years ago.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.
Returning for the highly-anticipated sequel are Tessa Thompson as Adonis’ girlfriend, Bianco and Sylvester Stallone, who was nominated for an Academy Award and took home a Golden Globe Award for his return as “Rocky Balboa.”
Newcomer Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu joins the franchise as Drago’s son, Viktor Drago.
Watch the trailer below as well as snaps from Big Nasty’s big and brawny Instagram:

Obviously, the world has taken notice of Pietro’s awesome abs and body. So, he’s launched his own YouTube video series where he shares his workout philosophy and how it fits into his fitness lifestyle.
My latest radio show on BlogTalkRadio gave me the chance to have a really upclose and personal chat with singer/actress Chloe Lattanzi about her debut album, NO PAIN, which has been released to critical praise.
Here’s the show description:
Acclaimed singer/songwriter and actress Chloe Lattanzi releases her debut solo album, NO PAIN (co-written and co-produced with Jarrad Rogers), the follow-up to her #1 Billboard Dance Club hit, “You Have To Believe,” the acclaimed collaboration with her mother, international superstar Olivia Newton-John.
Chloe began the project when she was signed to Warner Australia at the early age of 17, as a creative outlet to express her personal battle with body dysmorphia and anorexia. Although some leaked demos created excitement for the project, it was eventually put on hold as Chloe addressed her inner demons.
“When I was making NO PAIN thirteen years ago, it was ‘never good enough’ in my mind. Perfection was important to me. Now, the state-of-mind I’m in, I can hear the beauty and the vulnerability of the journey I was taking when I was making the album, and I wanted to share it with the world. I’m proud of it now.”
Mike Wass, writing for Idolator says, “We’ve been blessed by the occasional stand-alone single (2010’s “Wings And A Gun” and 2011’s “Play With Me”) and a club-conquering duet with her mom. But none of those tracks rival the greatness of (NO PAIN). Chloe has a distinctive voice and, more importantly, something to say.”
Chloe’s Billboard debut, “You Have to Believe,” became the very first #1 hit on the Billboard Dance Club chart by a mother/daughter team. The music video inspired former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter, to create a role for her in his successful zombie film, Dead 7, which premiered earlier this year on the SyFy Channel.
In 2008, Chloe garnered national attention on the MTV reality show Rock the Cradle, where she was the last female singer standing, coming in third in the finale.
I really hope you hit play below and take a listen. Chloe is quite frank about a lot of her journey through anorexia and body dysmorphia. Good on her for inspiring others.
Hot off of his turn on American Horror Story: Hotel plus his Golden Globe-winning turn last year in HBO’s The Normal Heart plus that little movie called Magic Mike XXL, Matt Bomer starts the year right on the cover of Men’s Fitness.
And why not? Shouldn’t we all be thinking about fitness as we look to shed those holiday pounds? (Damn you, buttermilk pie!)
Bomer talks on (of all things) his fondness for guns, Lady Gaga (“one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever known”) and more in the interview for the fitness mag.
