Reel FX’s latest animated film, The Book of Life, opened in 3rd place over the past weekend. The film (which features the voices of many stars such as Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, and Channing Tatum) grossed $17 million, which to my surprise was much less than what I thought it’d gross. But, it’s still early.
Did you see it? Did you like it? If you didn’t see it, do you plan to?
I definitely want to see it, although I’ll wait for it to come to DVD. I just can’t get over the fact that this colorful and creative film came from the same studios that made Free Birds!
Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”, has opened in the #2 spot in the US/Canada weekend box office. The film, based on a popular segment of “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show”, grossed a total of $32.5 million domestically.
I haven’t seen the film yet, but am really looking forward to see it because of the animation, the seemingly interesting plot, and the fact that Rob Minkoff (one of the directors of “The Lion King”) directed it.
Seems like LEGO is still as popular as ever! “The LEGO Movie” won the weekend US/Canada box office with a grand opening of $69 million! The film has just been getting great reviews after great reviews! I haven’t seen the film yet, but I want to, although I’m skeptical about the voice acting (that of Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks, especially).
Have you seen it? If so, how was it? If not, do you plan to see it? Lemme know in the comments!
The first animated film of the year, “The Nut Job”, landed 3rd place in the US/Canada weekend box office. Grossing over $2o million, the film has been getting negative reviews, but may yet pass its budget of $42 million (I hope it doesn’t).
Have you seen this? If so, how was it? If not, do you plan on seeing this?
I’ll watch this when it comes to DVD, but I’m REALLY not looking forward to it!
Reel FX Creative Studios’ first theatrically released animated film, “Free Birds”, didn’t really change much in the pecking order of things. The film opened to 4th place in the box office (US and Canada) with a total weekend gross of a mere $16 million. The film doesn’t seem likely to be a hit battling both a $55 million budget as well as nigh unanimously negative critical reviews. Continue reading ““Free Birds” Proves To Be a Turkey!”
Sony Animation’s “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” has taken the #1 spot in the US/Canada weekend box office with a gross of $35 million! I really loved the first movie and from the trailer, this one seemed so creative, mainly due to the designs, idea, and the plethora of food puns! I haven’t seen it yet, but I definitely plan to!
Have you seen it? What did you think? If you haven’t, do you plan on seeing it?
Well, Dreamworks Animation’s latest animated film, “Turbo” (a film about a snail who races in the Indianapolis 500), has shown itself to not be a run-away hit at all! Hmm, who’d have known? The film only grossed about $30 million in the domestic weekend box office. I myself have had NO interest in seeing this, although I’m sure I will see it when it comes to DVD. Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? If not, do you plan on seeing it?
The long-awaited sequel from Illumination Entertainment, “Despicable Me 2”, has shown itself to be an instant hit! With a 5-day weekend gross of $142 million, it wouldn’t surprise me if this film outgrosses “Monsters University”! Have you seen the film? If so, what did you think of it? If not, do you plan to see it?
I’m anxiously awaiting its DVD release, although I’m still upset that Al Pacino isn’t in it anymore 😦 !
