Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Home Market Releases for March 5th, March 6th, There are no massive releases; Creed IIis by far the biggest release of the week.
However, there are a ton of releases that would make the regular list in a normal week, but have been pushed into the Secondary Blu-ray list, mainly because I have nothing to say about them. It came down to a literally coin-toss here and The Favourite won.
It has no new markets this past weekend. In fact, it only has one major market left in its run, China. The film opened faster than Split did, but it has shorter legs, so it may or may not overtake its predecessor in the end. It will get a larger boost from its reviewswhich remain Oscar-worthy. And this is not a case of the critics loving it and the audiences being more ambivalent, as the film earned an A plus from CinemaScore and a five-star rating from PostTrak. It is certainly something to keep our eyes on.
In fact, there were no such films in the top ten. This is still ahead of the same weekend last yearbut by a tiny 1. It looks like it will be another soft weekend at the box office.
The lack of new releases is not helping holdovers too much, but most of the top five is on pace to match expectationsmore or less. This is within a rounding error of our prediction and nothing to panic about.
The first weekend of December is usually a terrible weekend to release a new film. This year this is not the case, but there are still no wide releases to talk about. This means the top five this week will be identical the top five from last weekend with Ralph Breaks the Internet leading the way.
I think will win in the year-over-year competition, but not by a lot. The post-holiday weekend matched expectationsmore or less. The Possession of Hannah Grace opened better than expected and earned more than it cost to make, so if it can find an audience on the home market, it could break even.
More importantly, this is 9. Granted, this is lower than we predictedbut not so much lower than anyone at Disney should be panicking. Its only major market opening of the weekend was the U. This is less than Wreck-It Ralph opened with, but that film debuted during the school holidays, so it got a boost. It will need help over the Christmas break to get there. This weekend, The Possession of Hannah Grace is the only new release and it is only opening in 1, theaters.
This means Ralph Breaks the Internet will have no trouble remaining in first place. In fact, the top five from last weekend will remain nearly the same. Its holdovers vs. The Favourite had the best theater average, not only of the weekend, but of the year. The weekend box office was more lucrative than predicted with both Ralph Breaks the Internet and Creed II breaking records.Sign In.

Rocky struggles in family life after his bout with Apollo Creed, while the embarrassed champ insistently goads him to accept a challenge for a rematch.

While life is good with that victory and his marriage to Bianca, trouble comes to Philadelphia when Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Adonis' father, Apollo, arrives with his son, Viktor, to challenge Adonis.

In that film, Donnie Creed wrestles with his legacy before emerging from the shadow of his famous father to forge his own path. Here, Stallone once again inhabits Rocky with the finely tuned actor skills we often forget he has. Some of that laziness infects the screenplay Stallone co-wrote with Juel Taylorand I wonder if Rocky fans like me are partially to blame.
Drago, I still would have appreciated at least a sly dig pun intended at our current political reality. Lundgren, like Stallone, has aged into something grizzled yet chiseled, so his mere presence alone commands the screen. In keeping with the sins of the father theme, Drago wants to use his son to get back in the Russian good graces he lost when Rocky defeated him. These two are inspiring, keeping the notion of Black love alive on the screen. Notice the funny-sexy-romantic and near slapstick scene where Donnie finally proposes to Bianca.
Still, there is much here for fans to feast on, from unexpected cameos by actors from former Rocky films to the reveal of Michael B. Additionally, the great Russell Hornsby steals his scenes as a Don King-like boxing promoter, and Phylicia Rashad continues her fierce maternal streak as Donnie's stepmother. There are moments big and small that are worth cheering for, which is more than you can ask for in a sequel.Gothic 1: Dolina Zombie Odc.2 - Rozmowy na zamku

Creed writer-director Ryan Coogler serves as an executive producer on the film. The film follows a fight over 33 years in the making, as Adonis "Donnie" Creed meets a new adversary in the ring: Viktor Drago, son of Ivan Dragothe powerful athlete who took the life of Donnie's father Apollo Creed in 's Rocky IV.
A Creed sequel was confirmed in Januarybut due to both Coogler and Jordan's involvement in Black Pantherthe film was delayed, with Coogler ultimately being replaced by Caple. Stallone completed the script in July and announced Lundgren would be reprising his role as Drago, and filming began in Philadelphia in Marchlasting through June. Pictures on November 21, Now a worldwide star, Donnie proposes to his girlfriend, Bianca Taylor, who agrees to marry him.
When Bianca suggests starting a new life together in Los Angeles, Donnie is reluctant to leave Philadelphia as it would mean leaving Rocky.
Ivan Dragothe former Soviet boxer who 33 years earlier in killed Donnie's father, Apollo Creedin the ring, sees an opportunity to regain glory after his loss to Rocky Balboa in Moscow later that same year.
As they adjust to their new life and prepare for the upcoming match with Viktor, Bianca learns that she is pregnant. Donnie recruits Tony "Little Duke" Evers, son of his father's trainer and later Rocky's trainer, to start training him.
Viktor is disqualified for hitting Donnie while he is down, allowing Donnie to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Viktor becomes extremely popular in Russia and wins a series of fights with top billing. His body and ego shattered, Donnie becomes increasingly disconnected from Bianca. Mary Anne reaches out to Rocky, who reconciles with Donnie and agrees to train him for a rematch against Viktor, who is suffering torturous physical tests by his father.
Bianca gives birth to a daughter, Amara, and Rocky is named her godfather. Donnie and Bianca's fears are realized when they learn that Amara is born deaf, after inheriting it from her mother's progressive hearing disorder. While Viktor taunts Donnie publicly, he faces constant pressure from his father, who enjoys the attentions of the media and various Russian delegates. Enraged at the sight of his mother, Viktor chastises Ivan for his interactions with the people who made them outcasts.
Meanwhile, Rocky and Little Duke retrain Donnie in a decrepit location in the California desert, focusing on fighting from within and training Donnie's body to absorb the heavy impact he will receive from Viktor in the ring. In Moscow, the rematch is more balanced as a more controlled and focused Donnie exchanges equal blows with Viktor. Since Viktor is accustomed to winning by knockout, his fights have never lasted beyond the fourth round, which Donnie uses to his advantage as he endures Viktor's heavy beating, even after his ribs are broken.
In the tenth round, Donnie unleashes sequence after sequence of effective blows and knocks Viktor down twice. Ludmilla departs after the second knockdown, upsetting Viktor, and Ivan sees the truth of Viktor's earlier statements. Viktor becomes exhausted, cornered and receives multiple strikes without defending himself, but is unwilling to go down.
Ivan assures the distraught Viktor it is okay that he lost, and embraces him. As Bianca enters the ring to celebrate with Donnie and Little Duke, Rocky recuses himself, telling Donnie that "It's your time", and takes a seat to watch them from outside the ring. Viktor and Ivan later train together back in Ukraine. Rocky travels to Vancouver to make peace with his own estranged son, Robert, and meets his grandson Logan for the first time, noting how much he looks like Adrian. Donnie visits Apollo's grave where he makes peace with his deceased father and the burden of carrying on his legacy, as he and Bianca introduce his granddaughter, who is wearing a new set of hearing aids.
Archive footage of Carl Weathers as Apollo Creed is used throughout the film, with the actor's likeness also appearing through the use of photographs and murals.
