Although Tenet was expected to be this year’s great success, the truth is that The Croods 2 movie managed to take over the box office.
With the pandemic taking over in 2020, the box office was completely wrecked. However, there were a few movies that made it to the big screen that created a stir. One of them was Tenet, the film by Christopher Nolan, which generated a lot of expectations in the public. Despite being a highly anticipated film, it was recently pushed out of the US box office by The Croods 2. The animated film grossed $ 9.7 million in its first US opening weekend, $ 14.2 million if we extend to Thanksgiving days.
If the collection of all the countries where the film is already available is combined, The Croods 2 has already raised about 35 million dollars globally, making it the best Hollywood release since the pandemic began. A situation that forced the closure of up to 60% of theaters during March, after the launch of Onward. The truth is that the animated film was a great surprise since it managed to surpass Tenet, the long-awaited film by Christopher Nolan and which everyone considers a candidate for the Oscars 2021.
In addition to being a box office success, The Croods 2 is also being very well received by audiences who rate it 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.
It was well-received in China.
In addition to surpassing Tenet in the United States, The Croods 2 also triumphed in China, raising 19.2 million dollars. The first part of the film raised 63 million dollars in the Asian country, the study hopes that hopefully the sequel can repeat or exceed this figure.
This film is directed by Joel Crawford and among its cast of original voices are Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman, in addition to the new additions who play the Másmejor family: Peter Dinklage, Leslie Mann, and Kelly Marie Tran.
