“The Croods: A New Age” tops in box office amid the pandemic. Universal and DreamWorks “The Croods: A New Age” repeated as winner of a mild post-Thanksgiving weekend with $4.4 million at 2,205 North American locations.
Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, and Ryan Reynolds all lend their voices to the film. In the movie, the prehistoric family the Croods are challenged by a rival family the Betterman’s, who claim to be better and more evolved.
“After an opening that topped very modest expectations, Croods is naturally remaining the dominant film in a market operating with less than 40% of theatres open currently. Renewed lockdowns and closures across the country will probably keep exhibition’s hands tied for the remainder for the holidays, even with Wonder Woman 1984 and a few other releases on the horizon to provide open theatres and willing audiences with fresh content,” Shawn Robbins of Box Office Pro said.
The movie was released on 25th November and it had brought in a collection of $20.3 million in its first twelve days. Seven years ago, the original “Croods” earned $89 million during its first two weekends in 2013 when it debuted at 4,046 theatres. During the same weekend a year ago, the third weekend of “Frozen II” led with $35.2 million at 4,348 locations followed by the second session of “Knives Out” with $14.2 million.
