Creed II came for the WIN this weekend! Box Office Mojo reports that Creed II is estimated to have grossed over $55.8 million over five days in North America. That’s the most a live action film has ever brought in on Thanksgiving – beating Creed’s $44.1M opening from 2015.
The original Creed was directed by Ryan Coogler and starred Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed. The sequel, Creed II was directed by Steven Caple Jr and revisited characters from Rocky IV. Much like the original creed, Sylvester Stallone played an instrumental role, as he’s done in the Rocky franchise over 40 years ago.
