Secret Life of Pets 2 | June 7 2019 | Illumination | Dropped more than half from the first movie. Also 14th most profitable movie of 2019

Recommended Posts

I saw the first on opening weekend (I think or maybe it was the week after. P. sure it was the week) to a packed house.

 

Now, the theater I saw it in is condemned and AMC isn't fixing it again, the other theater is out of commission (& who knows if Regal will fix it, but it has a lot less damage), and the one we have left can only fit about 70 people instead of about 120.

The UK performance is actually not as bad as first thought, it’s second weekend was down only -16% (despite opening the same day as Aladdin and Rocketman). 

 

It reduced the drop from the first film from 49% to 29% over the holiday week.

Can someone explain why this is projected to drop 50% from the first film? How does a follow up to a $350m movie drop so much?

 

 

I think it could be the same way IT2 and Jumanji 3 could drop from their previous movies.  They were a fluke, a one-time loophole that has been plugged.

The first one looked unique and fun. This one looks like more of the same with no hook.

I took 3 of my kids to see this movie tonight, ages 3, 10 and 16. We also saw a second movie. I took the 3 year old to see KotM and the two older ones (both girls) opted to see Aladdin. Out of the four of us, I was the only one who liked SLOP2 more than the other movie they saw. Yeah, my little guy enjoyed KotM more than he did SLOP2... I did not see that coming!

 

The biggest problem for me is there is not much of a story here. I could write a plot summary in about three sentences and not miss anything of consequence. I feel this is a common affliction with animated sequels, like the Minion Movie. The studios must think "well, the previous one did great so we'll just make a second and throw in enough jokes and everyone will eat it up", except it never works out. There are actually a lot of parallels with Madagascar 3, which put the brakes on that franchise.

 

Anyway, despite the lack of a plot I still liked SLOP2 more than I did the Incredibles 2, so maybe I'm crazy.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Despite Pets 2 falling short of the first movie, the good news is that it turned a profit, in large part due to the thrifty production cost associated with Illumination movies — this one at $80M. Participations are typically lower on animated movies versus live-action event movies, and here they were at $20M. Revenue including global home entertainment and TV rang up $393M, and against total costs of $275M, The Secret Life of Pets 2 becomes the first title in our tournament to net over $100M with $118M in profit.
