I JUST left a fabulous celebration with CREED cast members Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson and writer/director Ryan Coogler. The crew stopped by Atlanta to dedicate Creed inspired mural to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta.
In conjunction with Warner Bros. digital campaign entitled “#IFightFor,” the stars and talent behind the motion picture “Creed” will honor Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta’s (BBSS) personalized message entitled “I Fight For a Big Future” with a donation to their mentoring program, and mural dedication designed by Shepard Fairey’s design studio, Studio Number One. The mural will be located in the Mentoring Center within the newly adopted local headquarters of BBBS of Metro Atlanta.
The event began with a ceremony hosted by BBBS president and CEO Janice McKenzie-Crayton and to our surprise… the cast gave the program a $5000 donation!! And to top everything off… a few of the kids were able to get signed autographs and pictures with the cast.
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. 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. With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?
