Box Office: ‘Creed III’ Surpasses All Estimates With $58.6 Million Opening Weekend

Home business Box Office: ‘Creed III’ Beats All Estimates With $58.6 Million Opening…

All puns and clichés are dragged this morning for “Creed III”.

The third Michael B. Jordan-directed film in the post-Rocky series threw a punch and the like. and clinched $58.6 million for its opening weekend.

“Creed III” mopped the floor with the box office, making about $20 million more than all the tipsters had predicted. This is despite terrible weather in many places and the ability to watch the Spirit Awards on YouTube. (I’m joking.)

Sylvester Stallone threw in the towel on this one. He could have made an appearance as Rocky Balboa but let pride and anger get in the way. From now on, the “Creed” series will continue without him, in all likelihood. Jordan’s directorial debut is such a success that he can certainly pull off two more movies from it.

For MGM/UA, they were saved by the bell with “Creed”. Almost everything they touched turned to slag. Of course, “Creed” from their long “Rocky” contract dates back to long before the birth of the current MGM/UA staff. All they had to do this time was sit down and not screw it up.
