Dolph Lundgren returns as Ivan Drago, the guy who killed Apollo Creed in “Rocky IV”. He blames Rocky for his family being disgraced after he lost to Rocky in Russia 33 years ago . . . and plans to get revenge by having his son Viktor take down Adonis.
A Romanian boxer named Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu is Viktor Drago.
Florian was actually too big for the part and had to lose weight to make it as realistic as possible.
Obviously, Michael B. Jordan is back as Adonis Creed, Phylicia Rashad returns as his mom, and Tessa Thompson is his pregnant girlfriend Bianca. Sylvester Stallone also helped write the script with “Luke Cage” creator Cheo Hodari Coker.
This new remake stars Taron Egerton as Robin Hood and Jamie Foxx as the Moor who trains and fights alongside him under the alias Little John. The Sheriff of Nottingham is Ben Mendelsohn . . . the guy who built the Death Star in “Rogue One”.
An Australian comedian named Tim Minchin is Friar Tuck, Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson is Marian, and “50 Shades” star Jamie Dornan is her HUSBAND Will Scarlet.
John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman are back as Ralph and his glitchy racing friend Vanellope. In this one, they risk leaving the arcade to search the World Wide Web for a replacement part to her video game after its steering wheel controller breaks.
They get help from Taraji P. Henson and Gal Gadot. Taraji plays an Internet algorithm that determines trending videos, and Gal Gadot is a racer in a game called Slaughter Race. Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer get some screen time too.
