The third film in the Creed franchise hit the theaters on March 3. Starring Michael B. Jordan as Adonis “Donnie” Creed, the film follows the acclaimed boxer as he goes head-on against his old best friend Damian, who reentered his life after serving a long prison sentence.
Interestingly, Jordan has also donned the director’s hat for the project. The shooting of the film took place last year in a number of different cities. Here is everything we know about the locations where Creed III was filmed.
Creed III Filming Locations
The filming of Creed III commenced in January 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia. The production team then moved across California and Florida before concluding the shoot on April 6, 2022. IMAX-certified Sony CineAlta Venice cameras were used to shoot the film, making it the first sports drama to be filmed with the technology. Now let’s have a look at all the filming locations in detail:
Atlanta Metropolitan Area, Georgia
The major portion of Creed III was filmed in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. Particularly, the Buckhead Diner at 3073 Piedmont Road Northeast was utilized for the dinner scene between Dame and Donnie.
The production team was also spotted filming some scenes in Sandy Springs in northern Fulton County. Atlanta Metropolitan Area is the most populous metropolitan area in Georgia. The region is known for its museums, amusement parks, theatres, and auditoriums.
Earlier, several successful films, including Captain America: Civil War, Furious 7, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Million Dollar Arm were also shot in Atlanta Metropolitan Area.
Los Angeles, California
A number of key sequences for the film were also shot in Los Angeles County, California. The Muscle Beach at 1800 Ocean Front Walk in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles and 1st Street in the city were used as the locations where Damian could train throughout the film.
Some scenes were also taped at the Sixth Street Bridge and the Dodger stadium at 1000 Vin Scully Avenue in the city. Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the US. Its population is estimated to be greater than that of 40 individual US states.
Being the home of Hollywood, Los Angeles has served as a filming location for several films in the past as well, including Inception, Avatar: The Way of Water, Your Place or Mine, Bullet Train, Top Gun: Maverick, The Godfather, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Everything Everywhere All at Once.
