“Creed II” continued to make some cash at the box office over the weekend.
“Ralph Breaks the Internet” led the way this past weekend with more than $25 million, but the boxing franchise is holding strong.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following:
MGM and New Line’s boxing film Creed II came in at No. 3 in its sophomore outing, dipping 53 percent to $16.8 million from 3,576 cinemas for an impressive domestic cume of $81.2 million. Internationally, the pic has grossed $11.4 million to date.
I’m happy to see the Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone film is putting up numbers. It’s always great to see actual movies do well, despite the fact we as a society made the decision to let an animated film get the top spot. That’s pretty embarrassing for us as a country.
Unfortunately, I still haven’t been able to see this movie. College football has to take precedence, but you can bet every single dollar you have that eventually I’ll make my way to the theater. It’s bound to happen. I need a little more boxing action in my life. (RELATED: The First Trailer For ‘Creed 2′ Has Arrived [VIDEO])
Plus, the first one was just too legit for me not to want to check out the sequel.

Hopefully, “Creed II” continues to make some money, and we get a third film. I’d much rather have that than a dumb animated film like “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”
