‘Creed’ K.O’s Competition With $42 Million Debut / Michael B. Jordan Talks Exclusively To That Grape Juice

Published: Monday 30th Nov 2015 by Sam

‘Creed’ dealt a dynamite blow to all box office projections this week.

The boxing flick, which continues the ‘Rocky’ legacy, capped off with a five-day domestic total of $42.6 million.

Impressive on a number of fronts, the figure is particularly noteworthy because it means the Michael B. Jordan film bests initial estimates ($35 million) by a considerable margin. What’s more, the sum sees the movie (which smartly co-stars Sylvester Stallone) become the most successful ‘Rocky’ movie launch of all-time – topping the $21 million debut of Stallone’s last stint as lead [2006’s ‘Rocky Balboa’].

With industry analysts predicting a $100 million eventual total for ‘Creed’ (which had a $35 million budget), its 29-year director Ryan Coogler and all involved have much to smile about.

That Grape Juice’s Megan Thomas caught up with Michael B. Jordan at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere. Watch above as he gushes about the role that’s set to blast his star into the stratosphere.
