Creed II is knocking out the competition at the box office!
Debuting at No. 2 this weekend behind Ralph Breaks the Internet, the Steven Caple Jr.-directed film starring Michael B. Jordan and Tessa Thompson made $35 million (Fri-Sun) and $55 million over the extended holiday weekend (Wed-Sun).
Not taking inflation into account, the film bested several records, including:
— The best live-action debut for a Thanksgiving weekend film release
— Best film debut in the Rocky franchise (including the original Creed)
— Biggest sports drama debut
— Biggest boxing film debut
Let's hope this means Creed III will be on tap soon!
In other box office news, Robin Hood, which co-stars Jamie Foxx, is a flop, making only $9.1 million in its first week against a whopping $100 million budget.
