Pics of the Day

Creed III
is out today and our bud Kyle at The New York Times got to sandwich himself in between Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors -- at least that's how I would have conducted the interview anyway -- to ask them some questions. Check it here. The pictures, which I'm sharing here, are worth looking at! They're worth looking at several times. But the chat is good too -- they really seem to've hit it off, Jordan & Majors, and say they plan on working together again. Said Majors:

"Two alphas? No, bro, we both cannot survive. Somebody’s got to die. That’s the game I thought I was entering into, and he just kept saying, “I got you, bro.” I was like, “Boy, all right.”"

Anyway it doesn't look like I'll be reviewing Creed III so here are some quick thoughts -- it's actually terrific? I infamously couldn't stand the first Creed movie, so much that I never even bothered seeing the second one. But what bothered me so much about the first movie -- all the Daddy Issues nonsense got on my last nerve -- was nowhere to be found here, and I found the relationship that Jordan and Majors craft between two old friends pretty riveting. I cannot say how much of my opinion was formed by how hard I am in the tank for Majors right now -- there answer is hard, real real hard -- but I'm usually bored out of my mind by boxing movies and I was totally into this one from start to end. And that's not to say it's anything we haven't seen before -- it's not exactly rewriting the genre. But it's a solid entry built on real character work. Y'all should go see it. And y'all should hit the jump for more of these hunks...
