Everton's supporting role in new movie 'Creed'

A still from the Creed trailer with Bellew and trademark Everton crest
Everton's crest, Goodison Park and lifelong Blue Tony Bellew all feature in the latest instalment of the Rocky film franchise which has a new trailer out today.

Bellew stars as one of title character Adonis Creed's opponents in what is hoped will be a Hollywood blockbuster and a still from one of the scenes in the trailer shows the real-life boxer entering the ring in his trademark robes adorned with a prominent Everton crest.

Bellew's fight scenes also take place at Goodison and the famous Archibald Leitch criss-cross design on the Bullens Road stand is evident in the background towards the end of the two-and-a-half minute trailer. Crowd scenes were also filmed during the Blues' home game with West Bromwich Albion last season.

The film, headlined by adopted Evertonian Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan, of Fruitvale Station and American prime-time drama Parenthood fame, gets its theatrical release in the United States in late November and comes out in the United Kingdom next February.

WHAT??? That trailer went off the moment I saw Paulie's headstone.

Oh yeah: spoiler alert.

Ha ha I haven't watched any of the Rocky films since that one in Russia, but I suppose I'm going to have to go and see this one.

The best line in the original Rocky film was when Rocky was fighting Apollo,walked over to his corner and said to Mickey... "the guy's a prick".

I fully expect a "Best Supporting" nomination for my contribution to this forthcoming cinematic feast.

Aware of the numerous "wardrobe mishaps" of unfortunate starlets at countless movie premiers, I have decided to wear my lucky boxies. They may have let me down countless times, but never once have I accidentally "popped out for the Postman".

Have not yet settled on a single choice of outfit for the occasion, best (I think) to await Sly & Bills notification of "costumerie allowance" (aka "Other Operating Costs"). Naturally, I shall select my outfit from the vast choices available via "Everton One" and "Everton Two". Sadly, it appears, that neither Bangkok Suvarnabhumi nor John Lennon International Airports offer the necessary items.

Failing that, I shall peruse the many and various market outfitters of Kirkby, Greatie and St Johns.

They don't make them like they used to. Rocky films were good when they were complete bullshit. I recognize the original was the best made of the series but 2 and 4 were my favourites as I was at school at the time and liked the montages and Rocky ending up the winner... proper '80s feelgood shite.

This spin off looks like it's taking itself a bit seriously but it's bound to have a heavy dose of bullshit in there, as all boxing films do. The only realistic one I've seen is Raging Bull.

Richard (4), if the first one was the best, I haven't missed much. That was the only one I saw, wasted two hours of my like watching it... I'd rather watch Sylvester the cat than Stallone. He must be one of the richest and worst actors since films began. I wouldn't bunk in to watch him.

Richard,

Champion, a film made in the fifties, was a very good boxing film, it starred Kirk Douglas. Another was The Harder The Fall, the last film Humphrey Bogart made. It was the rumoured to have shown the career of Primo Carnera who was Heavyweight Champion of the World in the thirties. Most of his fights were fixed according to the film.

Don't forget Requiem For a Heavyweight. TV and movie versions.
Mike Gaynes

Raging Bull isn't just the best boxing movie ever, but one of the best movies in history. Cheers James for mentioning Requiem... worth the search for Anthony Quinn's brilliance.

For realism I also liked Cinderella Man. Great job re-creating the Braddock/Baer fight.

If you're looking for crazy boxers, check out Ike 'The President' Ibeabuchi. That guy was really out there. Although you still can't beat Iron Mike for all-time craziness, I don't think...
Richard Reeves
14 Posted 16/09/2015 at 11:40:12
Dave (#7) and James (#8),

Thanks, I'll have a look at those films.

Mike (#10),

I forgot about Cinderella Man, it wasn't bad to be honest. If you look at the actual footage of Braddock vs Baer it does look a lot like Crowe was in the ring. What wasn't factually true, though, was portraying Baer as a bad guy, apparently he was a decent fella.

I have my team of lawyers ready should I be 'featured.'

Well ok, there's probably very little chance the director sat in an edit suite with Thelma Schoonmaker and said...

"Wait go back three frames...THERE! THAT guy...the guy sidding in the upper Gwendoline stand, sucking on the e-cig, in the corner where it meets the upper Bullington - I wanna goddam close-up of him, he'll drive the girls muthafuckin' car-azy!"

..but as they're using my voice without paying me, surely that's worth a hot-dog or...something

Dave (7) - 'The Harder They Fall' is terrific and yes it was certainly based on the life/career of Primo 'Satchel Feet' Carnera (he was also known as 'The Ambling Alp').

Re Carnera's fights being fixed, I've no doubt they were, but to be fair to him, according the the superb book, 'Jacob's Beach', hundreds of big fights were fixed during boxing's 'golden era'

By the way, if you wanted to have a film night for mates and appear all..um.. 'film buffy', you could watch the Jimmy Cliff classic 'The Harder They Come', followed by 'The Harder They Fall.'

(does that Barry Norman - 'and why not!')

Jamie Yates
16 Posted 16/09/2015 at 17:55:31
Can anyone confirm whether the vociferous rendition of the Goodison classic 'Kopites are Gobshites' will be audible in the movie? It was far and away the highlight of that insipid non-event of a "football" match vs WBA earlier this year (aka Penaltygate) when the Rocky film crew turned up at half-time.
James Morgan
17 Posted 16/09/2015 at 18:30:28
I can't wait for this film; I love the Rocky films (except Rocky V which was pants). I'm glad they've kept him Scouse unlike most Hollywood films where English people are either cockney or posh, and he's proudly displaying the Blues badge.

I tried watching Raging Bull once but couldn't get in to it, maybe need another try. The Hurricane is a good one, as are most Denzel films, and Jake Gyllenhall's new one, Southpaw, is a belter.

Nicholas... apologies to your dad's better version, but Primo died of alcoholism back home in Italy. Never believed for a minute that his fights were fixed.

Brian, I think I gotcha. I worked out a few times alongside James "Buster" Douglas... and Ali himself once asked me if I was crazy.

Eugene,

Great call on Jacob's Beach, one of those books I read non-stop on holiday once.

As for boxing films (or more accurately films with boxing in them), you have to watch Punch Drunks by The Three Stooges. I must have seen it 50 times and it still makes me bellylaugh.

Mike Gaynes
23 Posted 16/09/2015 at 19:15:16
Dave Abrahams (6), Stallone as a fighter was an Olivier-calibre performance compared to Stallone as a goalkeeper... co-starring in Escape to Victory with Pele, Ossie Ardiles, Bobby Moore and about half the Ipswich Town starting lineup at the time.
Graham Mockford
24 Posted 16/09/2015 at 19:32:12
Mike #21

I disagree about Stallone. Granted he's been in some absolute terrible films. Stop! Or my mum will shoot is right up there with some of the worst films ever made.

But Rocky and First Blood are absolute stand out performances.

John Daley
25 Posted 16/09/2015 at 19:33:29
"I worked out a few times alongside James "Buster" Douglas... and Ali himself once asked me if I was crazy."

Mike, that is impressive.

Best I can manage is that I once threw a Dairylea triangle at Phil "Buster" Collins and then ducked out of sight when the tubby, tone-deaf, slaphead shouted "What the fuck?"

James Morgan
26 Posted 16/09/2015 at 19:59:22
Graham, I agree. He might not be a classic theatrical actor but I like a number of his films and performances. I love Tango & Cash and Demolition Man and even though they are cheesy, The Expendables. Managing to get all the actors I watched growing up in the 80s and 90s together deserves respect!
Dave Lynch
27 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:00:23
The best ever boxing match on the screen has to be Stan Laurel, aka "Battling Laurel" and can I buggery remember what the episode was called.

No-one would have lived with our Stanley on that form.

Colin Glassar
28 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:06:23
The best boxing film all time has to be The Champ with John Voight and some kid. Made me cry anyway. I loved Rocky I and Rocky II, Adriaaaaaaannnnn!!!!

The best boxers I ever saw were in Grimsby.

Maybe before some of your time!

And a lot of them were women.

Dave Abrahams
32 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:15:07
Eugene (13) yes I thought The Harder They Fall was a very good boxing film, it also featured a real heavyweight champion in Jersey Joe Walcott, who played a boxing trainer.

Another film about boxing and also the corrupt side of the game was Body and Soul starring a real actor John Garfield, who made Stallone look like a ten-cent extra.

Dave Abrahams
33 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:20:07
Colin (25), I think The Champ is a remake of a Charlie Chaplin film. I cried when I watched that and I was about 28.
Dave Lynch
34 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:23:06
Kev.

I think they put a couple of pounds of nuts and bolts in his glove as well, still cry with laughter when I watch it.

Andy Crooks
35 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:24:09
Dave, Stallone is underrated. I thought he was pretty good in Copland.

Mike, I'm not going to disagree with you again. That Tim Howard is great.

Does anyone remember the old black and white British film The Square Ring with Jack Warner? I haven't seen it for I while but it has plenty of qualities.

Dave Abrahams
36 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:32:06
Andy (32) fair enough, each to his own. I can't stand Stallone, maybe because we come from different eras. I lived in cinemas in the forties and fifties and I think movies are made differently nowadays... But if you like an actor then you like him, that's fine.
John Daley
38 Posted 16/09/2015 at 20:43:53
Chaplin did the old horseshoe in the glove first in The Champion.

If we can just rattle on about boxing movies in general then Raging Bull is clearly out there on it's own as a masterpiece, but as with most vintage De Niro performances, I now find my enjoyment of it tainted by the last twenty years of excruciating, going through the motions, gurning he's habitually churned out. Seriously, since the same year double whammy of Casino and Heat, he's done nothing but disgrace his previous reputation as a committed character actor in a trade off for easy dollars to keep TriBeCa ticking over.

Marlon Brando in On The Waterfront (whilst not strictly speaking a fight film) is a portrayal of an ex-pugulist I've always had a soft spot for ever since I was a kid. In recent years, Christian Bale in The Fighter had Dickie Eklund's character and mannerisms down to a tee. There's also Korean film called Crying Fist that's well worth a watch if you like your boxing movies served with a nice slice of sentimentality and can overlook the fact that the guy playing an Olympic Silver Medalist looks like your gran could give him a good schooling in the ring.

Of course, all of those pale into insignificance compared to the most beloved boxing movie of all time: Teen Wolf Too.

Great to have a boxing thread on here that doesn't automatically get moderated out – obviously because of the on-topic EFC link. Personally I have a wider interest in boxing than football, as the latter is all about The Mighty Blues winning and the RS getting trounced. I couldn't give a flying one about any other matches or teams.

I'm glad to see Tony Bellew is flying the flag for our great club in such a global manner. But there is a potential problem if our most famous thespian's career progresses. Hopefully he will insist on the Everton crest on his costume while playing the male lead on stage in the West End in, say, A Christmas Carol or To Kill A Mockingbird.

Regarding boxing books worth a shout: Sting Like A Bee by Jose Torres (1973) and The Greatest: My Own Story by Mohammed Ali (1977). My View from the Corner by Angelo Dundee also makes interesting reading. These and other boxing books are next to my EFC ones on the shelf. Might get the Hagler book for Christmas (still think the Leonard fight was a draw).

Re: DVDs, Champions Forever is a brilliant documentary and Tyson- the Movie also an interesting insight. I also started the D'Agostini collection Boxers some years but started to fear for my bank balance after about 25 installments. I also have all of Ali's fights on DVD except for the first 6 (to be honest, the commercial breaks on 1970s US TV is more interesting than a few of those).

Mike Hughes,

My recommendation may not mean much as you clearly know more about the sweet science than myself, but the best boxing documentary I've ever seen would have to be Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise & Fall Of Jack Johnson. A great story, about four hours long, but absolutely riveting for every minute of that running time. If you haven't seen it and you can track it down, it's well worth investing your time in.

Dave Lynch
43 Posted 16/09/2015 at 21:44:58
I was never really a heavyweight fan (barring Ali, Frazier..).

For me, the golden age were the superb middleweights. Duran, Leonard, Hearns...

I once remember watching a bout with my dad and he stated before the start that the "fella in the red corner was a Mexican road sweeper".

It turned out to be Hector Comacho in one of his early fights and he slaughtered his opponent; I've never let him forget that one.


Dave Abrahams
45 Posted 16/09/2015 at 21:48:41
Mike (35) there is a great biography on Rocky Marciano, don't know who wrote it, but it 's a good read, warts and all, Rocky wouldn't part with a cent if he could help it, but a very good champion, who fought all before him, sadly it wasn't a great era for heavyweights, a lot of them were past it when Rocky fought them.

If you are an aficionado of boxing literature you have probably read Mailer's The Fight.

If you haven't, it's worth a read. I mean Mailer is one of the few journalists to have an ego to compare with Ali but his writing is superb.

Jack Johnson, a very, very interesting character, one of my all time boxing heroes, although I obviously never saw him. He believed in himself as a boxer, more importantly as a man, knew he was as good as any other person, no matter what colour they were, and it was much harder to be a black man in his day.

Mike Hughes
48 Posted 16/09/2015 at 22:01:22
John #37 - thanks for the recommendation - will check that out. (I'm no boxing expert by the way - just an enthusiastic fan).

Dave #38 - you should check out 'The Fabulous 4' DVD with Hagler, Duran, Hearns, Leonard.

Dave #39 - thanks - will check that out.

Graham #40 - yes, I have 'The Fight'. Mailer's style sometimes gets in the way but a good read nevertheless.

Eugene Ruane
49 Posted 16/09/2015 at 22:34:24
I have three pics of myself with world champions, all doing that staggeringly posed punch on the chin pose (my chin).

One is Nigel Benn (a tough guy but I never really rated him as a boxer).

And the other two are forever linked.

One is Ken Buchanan who I saw fight live but (sadly) right at the end of his career.

And Duran (who took the title from Buchanan by kneeing him in the ball-bag... allegedly).

I'm fairly sure the pic of me with Duran is the greatest thing I own (a Simpsons script signed by Mike Scully comes close).

As for boxing books, AJ Liebling's 'The Sweet Science' is a terrific read.

John (37) - I saw most of that (incredibly long) JJ documentary about a year ago on some unknown channel.

It just kept going and going and going, but as you say, never flagged.

One depressing note (for me) was discovering how racist (one of my heroes) Jack London appeared to be, even setting up the search for 'the great white hope.'

I remember seeing Tyson with Harry Carpenter, both looking at old fighters on a movieola. Tyson's opinion on Johnson's very careful hit-but-don't-get-hit style was 'he stunk the joint out.'

John Daley
50 Posted 16/09/2015 at 00:06:25
Eugene,

By no means an expert (or even much of a fan) but Jack London seems a weird one to pin down.

On the one hand he warns about the dangers of "the yellow peril" and conjures up some futuristic fantasy in which the dastardly Chinese colonise and forcefully seek control over the entire planet. On the other, he writes 'The Chinago'!

His writings on Jack Johnson seem to contain equally conflicting emotions, in that he clearly expresses endless admiration for Johnson as this beautiful fighting machine, but then proceeds to position him as almost some sort of ultimate Boogie Man that absolutely must be put down at all costs.

Inner struggle with his dedication to Social Darwinism maybe?

-------------

Now, about that Simpsons script... Which episode? I may happen to think the show started down the slow, slippery, slope to eventual shiteness when Scully took over as show runner, but he did pen the lyrics to the sensational 'See My Vest'. Not quite up there with 'A Fish Called Selma' and Troy Mclure in Planet Of The Apes: The Musical ("I hate every ape I see. From chimpan-A to chimpan-Z"), but a classic none the less.

Eugene Ruane
51 Posted 17/09/2015 at 08:07:04
John (45) - the episode is 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation' and the signature says - 'Eugene, my signature decreases the value of this script...D'oh! Mike Scully' (not great but better than 'Nothing could be finer than eating in your diner' Jerry Seinfeld).
Dave Abrahams
52 Posted 17/09/2015 at 09:16:50
Eugene (44), Ken Buchanan, a great boxer with a big heart, I remember when he won the world title in America. That year he looked a nap to be named Sports Personality of the Year for the BBC award; instead Princess Ann got the trophy.

David Bedford, the great distance runner, sat there disgusted at her winning, while Henry Cooper was clapping wildly at her winning, I was never interested in that award after that year.

Richard Reeves
53 Posted 17/09/2015 at 12:47:49
Yeah, I remember that film, Colin (#26), made me cry also. I was about the same age as that young lad when I saw it.

Whatever happened to that actor? I remember seeing him in another sad film where he was beaten by his dad, played by Burt Young (Paulie from Rocky) who was often cast as someone with a temper or maybe the few films I saw him in, not least one which I shouldn't have seen at a young age... Amityville 2 The Possession.

Mike Gaynes
54 Posted 17/09/2015 at 14:48:29
Graham #22 and James #24, let me clarify... I was deriding Stallone's ring performance, in which he looked more like a dog-walker than a fighter. But his portrayal of Rocky as a character was superb, totally believable and well worthy of his Oscar nomination.

Kevin #37... first I've heard of that (no pun intended). Where did you read that he was deaf?

The mistake a lot of people make is that Rocky is a film about boxing; it isn't, it's a love story in which the male-lead character happens to be a boxer. Rocky is a classic, even up to Rocky 3 when Mickey dies.

A word of warning, do not go and see Southpaw. Utter shite.

Eugene Ruane
57 Posted 18/09/2015 at 10:39:11
James Marshall (51) - 'The mistake a lot of people make is that Rocky is a film about boxing - it isn't, it's a love story in which the male-lead character happens to be a boxer.'

Thank you, Mark Kermode.

By the way, another mistake a lot of people make is believing that Carry On Camping is a complex Vietnam analogy, equating Sid James, Bernard Breslaw and their girlfriends going unprepared into the unknown, with the US military's engaging of the Viet Cong in unfamiliar terrain.

But... it's just a load of nobs, knockers and arse gags and a quick blimp of one of Babs '5 abortions' Windsor's incredibly flabby (and incredibly overrated) tits.

Dean Peamum
58 Posted 18/09/2015 at 10:54:05
The best boxing scene I've seen was in Adolf Hitler: My Part In His Downfall where skinny Spike Milligan (played by Jim Dale), has an inter-regiment bout with a big fit well-built guy. Spike clearly doesn't want to fight him but suddenly the lights go out and when they come back on the big guy is lying on the canvas doubled up holding his balls.

The film also gave the great line when Spike turned up 3 months late and was asked, "I suppose, you know you are three months late arriving?"

"I'll make up for it sir, I'll fight nights as well!"

Tony McNulty
59 Posted 18/09/2015 at 11:34:14
Eugene,

That 1970s Danish Classic Kiss my Whip is similarly misunderstood. It actually focuses on the sociology of knowledge, and deals with epistemological questions at the heart of human existence whilst touching on early Marxist theory.

I continue to be surprised that so many people seem unaware of this.

If you want to read a good book about a great champion, Roberto Duran: Hands of Stone.

http://www.amazon.com.au/Hands-Stone-Legend-Roberto-Duran-ebook/dp/B004YE7ACO

He should have been disqualified for a low blow against Buchanan but he was miles ahead on points at the end of the 13th round.

Patrick Murphy

Nice one, Eugene. Still not quite as funny as gout but keep trying.
Eugene Ruane
69 Posted 18/09/2015 at 15:39:13
Kieth (62) - Yes from the moment Banjo was (ahem!) plucked from obscurity and appeared on the scene, I could see he was bound for... mid-80s British boxing mediocrity and shiteness.

Apparently these days he suffers with a cauliflower arse (although he did beat our very own Noel "dat is all I 'ave to say!" Quarless).

Andy Crooks
70 Posted 18/09/2015 at 22:04:43
The most deranged wager of my life was a substantial bet on Tony Sibson (I think that's spelled right) at the ludicrously skinny, although in my addled mind at the time, remarkably generous, odds of 6/1, to beat Marvin Hagler.

That bet was the culmination of years of madness and when Sibson was despatched, I went down with him. I have been waiting on a thread like this for years for the chance of cathartic confession.

Dave Abrahams
71 Posted 18/09/2015 at 22:13:56
Andy (65), good boxer, Tony Sibson, with plenty of bottle, but he was out of his league there. Mind you, in betting, if you get a hunch or a feeling about a bet, you follow it through; I couldn't tell you how many times I've done that, not many good returns either.
Eugene Ruane

Resurrecting this old news story, there's a lot of Everton in the movie. I was expecting a glimpse of a badge on Bellew's shorts but we're everywhere! The old lady even gets quite a few mentions. Fair play to Sly (and Tony).
