The Croods 2 2020 Thanksgiving Box Office

Considering how many people decided it was okay to fly across the country for Thanksgiving in the middle of a pandemic, it should come as no surprise that some people were also willing to risk their lives to see what an animated caveman family has been up to after seven years.

The Croods 2: A New Age opened in theaters for the holiday weekend, and while it had no problem taking the top spot at the box office and surpassing Tenet for the biggest box office opening since the coronavirus pandemic began, these numbers are still nothing to brag about. Read More »

The Croods A New Age Review

2020 has been a year of incalculable oddities, and somewhere fairly high up on the list has to be the very existence of The Croods: A New Age. It’s been nearly eight years since the arrival of the first Croods film, which made a decent enough splash at the box office (primarily internationally) to spawn this long-gestating follow-up. But unlike the other DreamWorks Animation release from 2020, Trolls World Tour, you won’t be able to rent A New Age on VOD instantly. No, if you and the family are just jonesing for some new entertainment this holiday weekend, you’ll have to brave the theaters amidst skyrocketing cases in a still very real pandemic situation. Wonder Woman 1984? It’s going to be available on HBO Max this Christmas, the same day it’s in theaters. Soul? Just straight to streaming on Disney+.

But no, The Croods: A New Age is the one you can rush out to see in theaters. There’s not much reason why you should, though.

AMC Theatres got some help from a deal they struck with Universal that not only shortened the theatrical window to 17 days but gave theaters some of the VOD revenue when the movie was available to rent digitally at home. Now, it seems Cinemark is the latest chain looking to allow shortened theatrical windows during this unprecedented situation. Read More »

The Croods 2 release date

The time has come, America.

It’s finally time to dust off your Croods Halloween costumes, start planning some fun Croods-themed finger foods for your next family gathering, and perfect your old Grug impression, because seven years after the original animated movie came out, The Croods 2 is finally hitting the big screen.

While the current conventional wisdom is that movie studios are shifting their films out of 2020 altogether, Universal and DreamWorks Animation are taking the opposite approach with this sequel: they’ve actually moved it up from Christmas to Thanksgiving.
