Creed III makes Box Office record

Creed III

The Creed trilogy’s third installment, Creed III, defied predictions at the box office during the course of its opening weekend.

Creed III grossing $58.7 million in North America and $41.8 million internationally, making it the highest domestic opening for a sports movie ever. (The Karate Kid remake from 2010 held the previous record.)

Despite being the first movie in the nearly 50-year history of the Rocky and Creed film franchises to not star Sylvester Stallone, the sequel to 2018’s Creed II is starring Michael B. Jordan and managed to surpass its $75 million budget in its opening weekend.

Nonetheless, Creed III won a lot more championships than simply the record for sports movies.

In addition, Creed III has the “highest opening ever for a Black director in their directorial debut,” as noted on Twitter by cinema blogger Erik Davis.

As thrilling a milestone as this is for Jordan, Jonathan “Damian ‘Dame’ Anderson” Majors, who plays Jordan’s co-star, has just as much to be happy about.

Due to Creed III’s success, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s two-week reign at the top of the box office has ended.

Majors plays a prominent role in that Marvel superhero as well, giving the actor back-to-back supremacy in big-budget films.

According to Screen Rant, this is allegedly the first time an actor has done this in at least the last five years.
