Their official press release:
LOS ANGELES - November 24, 2015 - Disney Pixar's "The Good Dinosaur," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2" (in its second weekend) and Ryan Coogler's "Rocky" reboot, "Creed," starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, are the leaders on this week's Fandango's Fanticipation movie buzz indicator, scoring 91, 88 and 84 out of 100 points, respectively.
"Thanksgiving weekend moviegoers will have a bounty of options at their local multiplexes," says Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger. "Pixar's beautiful ‘The Good Dinosaur' caters to families, while the terrific boxing drama ‘Creed' will appeal both to older ‘Rocky' enthusiasts and younger supporters of star Michael B. Jordan, and ‘Mockingjay, Part 2' should continue to draw legions of ‘Hunger Games' fans.
To help prepare moviegoers for this week's release of "Creed," Fandango has put together a helpful infographic reviewing the history of the six previous chapters in the "Rocky" franchise at http://www.fandango.com/movie-news/infographic-rocky-by-the-numbers-750136.
