‘Creed’ Makes History with Box Office Debut

Michael B. Jordan Creed

Although Creed did not beat out The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur for the No. 1 spot in the box office during its debut weekend, the film still experienced a victory.

According to The Wrap, the Michael B. Jordan-led film made history with the highest grossing opening in the six-sequel franchise that has spanned over 39 years.

The film, which was directed by Ryan Coogler, came in at No. 3, grossing $42.6 million in ticket sales in the first five days and $30.1 million in the first three.

Given the success of the film, people are already wondering if there is a sequel in to look forward to in the coming years. The boxing film’s star has even expressed his interest in starring in the film again.

“A character so rich as this, and the world he’s in, I want to see what happens to him next and what he does,” he said. “Especially the way it ends off, it’s pretty cool. I think with success and time and circumstances, it would be exciting to come back and work with Sly (Stallone) and Tessa (Thompson) again.”

A sequel may be coming, but in the meantime, if you haven’t seen Creed catch it in theaters now.
