Boxing drama "Creed 3" sent the movie "Ant-Man 3" to a knockdown

The boxing drama "Creed 3" had a successful start at the domestic box office, setting a record for the entire series and knocking the Marvel Comics adaptation "Ant-Man 3: Quantomania" out of first place.
In its first weekend, "Creed 3" earned $51.1 million in North America. The opening day alone for the third installment of "Creed" surpassed all previous releases by Amazon, which now owns MGM Studios.
In the feature directorial debut of "Creed 3" star Michael B. Jordan, Adonis Creed, son of "Rocky" fighter Apollo Creed, confronts his childhood friend Damien, played by Jonathan Majors.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania will drop to second place. The third solo superhero movie could again lose more than 60 percent of its earnings after a record second weekend fall for a Marvel film. U.S. earnings for "Ant-Man 3" are expected to exceed $185 million by Sunday.
In third place was the feature-length version of the anime "Demon Slayer." It earned $4.1 million on 1,753 screens. The project, consisting of the final two episodes of the series, reinforced by a new storyline, was able to push back the other debutants from last weekend and make its way into the top three.
