Jordan and Tessa Thompson, writer-director Ryan Coogler and producer Irwin Winkler attended a celebration of the movie atop the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps.The "Rocky" series spawned six more movies, and all the films shared a common co-star with Stallone – Philadelphia.Jordan was immersed for nearly a year in training for a movie that probably has more fight scenes than any of the first six movies.
