Creed II had a record-breaking opening at the box office for Thanksgiving week. From it’s first day in theaters, Nov. 21st, until now it has grossed a whopping $55 million in ticket sales, Forbes reports. This is the biggest opening for any non-Disney Disney release and a live-action release during Thanksgiving.
Creed II, which was directed by Stephen Caple, Jr., follows Adonis, Michael B. Jordan’s character, as he prepares to fight the son of the man who killed her father in 1985 and is trained by a reluctant Rocky, played by Sylvester Stallone.
The sequel has surely outperformed it’s predecessor for it’s first weekend in theaters. Creed grossed $29 million its opening weekend. The flick also went on to gross over $109 million domestically, and since Creed II is already half-way to grossing a million it may continue to do better than the original.
