Some fans weren’t happy with the level of fighting in the new Creed film and took matters into their own hands in a cinema screening.

Creed III, is the directorial debut from Michael B. Jordan, who plays Adonis Creed in the Rocky spin-off franchise.

It was released worldwide on 3 March and is already performing well on the box office, having already grossed over $100 million and achieving a 7.4 rating on IMDB.

But there were some unsavoury scenes at a recent screening in France, where two viewers started throwing hands as the credits played.

It all kicked off in the aisles, with fans stunned as they watched on. Some tried to get involved and defuse the fight, the cause of which is said to be related to one of the individuals committing the cinema sin and spending a lot of time on their phone.

The clip went viral on social media, racking up millions of views online. It was shared with the caption, “CREED III is so hype that it has people breaking out in fights as the credits roll.”

The synopsis of the third installment in the series sees Creed, son of Rocky Balboa’s foe-turned-friend Apollo, lock horns against childhood friend Damian ‘Diamond Dame’ Anderson, played by Jonathan Majors.
