Creed 3 has hit theaters and the movie has received rave reviews, especially from fans who have made it the top U.S. opening of all time for a sports movie. 

MGM reports the latest installment in the Creed franchise has scored the biggest domestic opening ever by surpassing 2015's Creed ($29.6 million), 2018's Creed II ($35.6 million), all of the Rocky films, and the previous record holder, 2010's Karate Kid ($55.7 million), according to the Los Angeles Times

"For many franchises, the law of diminishing returns applies," Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore, said in a statement, "but Creed is a welcome exception, and the continued interest and excitement that moviegoers have for this character and these films that are generational and spiritual successors to the Rocky brand, one that started almost 50 years ago, is quite remarkable."

Creed 3 stars Michael B. Jordan who portrays Adonis Creed in the film. The movie also marks Jordan's directorial debut. 

CBN News traveled to Los Angeles recently for the movie's premiere and to sit down to chat about the film with Jordan and members of the movie's cast, including Jonathan Majors and Tessa Thompson Bianca.
