Secret Life of Pets 2 | June 7 2019 | Illumination | Harrison Ford joins

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.

I think I've seen 4+ trailers for this and I still have no idea what it's supposed to be about.

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?

The trailers for the first movie didn’t show anything either and that opened to 100+m.

Huge promo for this on tonight's American Ninja Warrior on NBC because of parent company Universal.

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.
