Granted, most of the movies opened decades ago. But Creed II still debuted with the biggest opening weekend in Rocky franchise history. The film grossed $35.2 million from Friday to Sunday, and $55.8 million total since the film officially opened on Wednesday. That’s better than Creed’s $29.6 million when it premiered in 2015.

Here’s the full weekend box-office chart. The number one film was Ralph Breaks the Internet, which looks like another massive hit for Disney:

Ralph had the second biggest opening weekend ever for a Thanksgiving release. It also had a bigger debut than the original Wreck-It Ralph, which grossed $49 million in its first three days in theaters back in 2012. CinemaScore voters gave Ralph an A- — and gave an A to Creed II, suggesting both films should have strong word of mouth through the holiday season. (They gave the weekend’s third wide release, Taron Egerton’s Robin Hood, a lowly B, and the film earned just $14.2 million from Wednesday to Sunday. This dude is not the Prince of Thieves.)

Meanwhile, in limited release, The Favourite scored the best per-screen average of 2018. Yorgos Lanthimos’ new costume drama starring Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone made $420,000 on just four screens around the country for a huge PSA of $105,000. Watch out for that one during Oscar season too.
