After a year filled to the brim with animated movies, it would be easy to expect demand for another one on the horizon to be soft. Thankfully for Sony, that definitely isn't the case for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

 

The sequel has consistently performed well in our online tracking metrics over the last few months, and closer analysis reveals the strong potential for a run similar to last year's Hotel Transylvania. That flick--also a Sony release--controlled the family market for five weekends last fall. Signs pointed to its success in advance, and now, they're pointing even more convincingly toward a big audience for Cloudy 2.

 

On Twitter, the film is currently outpacing Hotel Transylvania's activity by 238 percent at the same point in the pre-release cycle. Cloudy 2's nature as a sequel is responsible for much of that advantage, however, there's no ignoring the otherwise strong presence of the film (including an effective trailer campaign thus far).

 

The sequel's Facebook buzz is similarly healthy... (more)

It is just me that feels that the trailers make it look like a smaller movie compared to the first?

Perhaps they're trying to hide the grand scope of the film? Puns are more likely to get kids excited.

 

But I'd definitely say $50 to $55 million is a solid opening weekend range for Cloudy 2

The trailers for the first film were terrible, yet the film was good. Same with Kung FU Panda.FU Panda. Hehe

Hobbit 3 will be lucky to hit $240m

I'm excited for this, but I'm not feeling much hype among older kids. Probably will do really well with younger kids though.

I imagine it'll break HTs record for the biggest opening weekend for a September release but how much remains to be seen, a $50-55m OW would make it the third highest grossing animated film after DM2 and MU.

They haven't really done a great job marketing this outside of kids programming, (I know that's expected, but DM2 and MU had insane marketing everywhere), but 40+ seems very safe.

The first had great legs after people realized the movie was much better than the trailers. I think that could happen with this film as well, even though this is a sequel.

The trailers showed some really great gags.  Hopefully, that's not the best of them and there's more where that came from.

I was a big fan of the first one and while I don't think this one will be as great I'm still excited enough to see it

But don't forget Insidious Chapter 2... it could break out past 35 million OW
