Hollywood has had very complicated months at the time of obtaining the usual earnings with its releases, the big problem is that people prefer not to go out to theaters due to the pandemic and the studios have preferred to delay several of their program titles for the second half of the year current. Regardless, Dreamworks made the decision to go ahead with The Croods 2: A New Era putting it on the American billboard and taking it to other parts of the world. This decision has been positive for the company, as animation continues to outperform at the box office due to the non-arrival of more films.
This sequel brings us back to the prehistoric family of the Croods, who are apparently challenged by the Bettermans, a family that looks a step further in human evolution. As was the case seven years ago, we will be back with the characters that earned a very special rank among animation consumers. The film premiered on November 25 in the United States and in Mexico on December 10, but it is in the northern country where it is surprising with its strong collection due to the lack of premiere; easily beat the Tenet numbers during its first days on the billboard and continues to reign.
According to information from Comicbook, The Croods 2: A New Era has raised another three million dollars this weekend, with a total gross of 24 million, it is not as successful as its predecessor but at least it has the honor of being the best at the box office in recent days. Cinemas in the United States and practically all over the world have not had more Hollywood releases, so the new adventure of the Croods is enjoying the honeys of loneliness, obtaining more or less good economic benefits with its performance. But what other movies are making a profit?
Other movies that are also in the United States and that continue to make a profit are Freaky: This Body Is To Kill – 90%, The War with Grandpa – 47% and, of course, the Wonder Woman relaunch. It is worth mentioning that Warner Bros. made a radical decision in recent days: to take all its 2021 releases to the movies and streaming at the same time, so the industry is about to take a hitherto unknown direction. In addition, Disney announced in previous days its great bet regarding entertainment via platforms from home, something is about to change forever.
The pandemic has had very negative effects on the national industry. Cinemas were forced to close their doors until further notice, and although many have already opened, the influx is quite scarce, very far from what was previously known. On the other hand, the companies in charge of producing films and television had no alternative either and observed a brake in their activities that for a long time they believed unstoppable. Given the possibilities of regrowth and new confinements, it is necessary to continue following the usual recommendations to take care of our health and that of those around us.
The film industry in Hollywood is not better either. Countless premieres were delayed until 2021 as few shown in 2020 resulted in complete failure. This year was not great for the seventh art, it has been bitter and full of dangers, but soon we will see a resurgence. Wonder Woman 1984 is the next big Hollywood premiere, with a simultaneous release for theaters and streaming, kicking off this new trend that could forever change the shape of entertainment. We will see how the panorama looks for the following year, when the vaccine reaches more countries.
