Details On ‘Creed’ Single Take Fight

creed1One of the bigger selling points about Creed and among the reasons it is getting positive reviews is the single take fight in the middle of the movie.  Some might have thought that some ‘digital stitching’ was going on, but it was indeed apparently done the hard way.

Director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan have spoken to Buzzfeed about it. They reveal that the scene was done in one shot and deliberately so with Coogler not shooting cutaways. Thirteen takes of the shot were done in total, but the scene had to be stopped whenever the fight choreography was messed up.

This meant only the eleventh and thirteenth take were considered. The eleventh take is the one in the final film and the entire sequence is from that take – no bits of the thirteen or other takes were spliced in. Coogler didn’t have a back-up plan in case the single take didn’t work, only hoping the editors could edit together a version from all the different takes.

So that’s mighty impressive and to be honest refreshing in this day and age.

    It was a good fight.
    But they are calling “Creed” the best in the series since the first & that is some bullshit.
    Tommy Gunn could beat Adonis’s ass.
