Seven years ago, the original "Croods" earned $89 million during its first two weekends in 2013 when it debuted at 4,046 theatres. Now, amid a mild box-office scenario due to the coronavirus, the sequel has registered over $4 million at the ticket counters of over 2,000 cinemas.
The animated comedy sequel, "The Croods: A New Age," featuring a voice cast of Oscar winners, Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds, has been dominating the seriously subdued movie going business since its Nov. 25 launch with $20.3 million in its first dozen days.
"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," said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at Box Office Pro.
"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."
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
