Before the bell has even rung, Creed III has come out punching.
Deadline reports the movie earned $5.45 million from preview screenings Wednesday and Thursday evening, and is on track to earn upwards of $40 million over the weekend.
The movie is tracking well on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 96% Audience Score. Its preview performance bests the $3.6 million made from the sneaks of 2018’s Creed II and the $1.4 million earned by the original Rocky spin-off, Creed, in 2015.
If Creed III meets or exceeds those estimates, leading man Michael B. Jordan‘s directorial debut could easily knock out the $29.6 million earned by the original over its opening weekend, and even beat that of the $35.5 million earned by its sequel in its debut bout in theaters.
Locally, Creed III can be seen at Hollywood Cinema and at Movie Town Theatre. Click on the links to either for showtimes.
