‘Creed II’ Makes Box Office History Thanksgiving Weekend

Contributed by Taylor Ardrey

 

“Creed II” comes out on top!  During opening weekend, Thanksgiving weekend, the film grossed $35.2 million.

Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, “Creed II” is the continuation of the story of Adonis Creed. With the help of Rocky, Adonis is preparing for one of the most challenging fights of his career against Ivan Drago’s son.

Movie critics raved about the movie on Rotten Tomatoes:

If the results aren’t as artful as those by Creed director Ryan Coogler (Steven Caple Jr. steps in), they still feel earned.

Creed II is gonna to be a winner for any fan of the Rocky franchise, but it’s also going to be a win you over if you’re not. At its core, it’s a family movie that asks some very deep questions…

One thing I do love about #Creed2 is that it also focus on Bianca being deaf because honestly it’s not too many movies that include black people dealing with certain disabilities. I would love to see more POSITIVE movies with black disabled people. I might start one 😌✨
