The Croods vs Rise Of The Guardians
So people just learned about The Croods getting a TV series and sequel, and upset that Rise Of The Guardians did not get either of these. If we can tear our eyes away from Jack Frosts cute smile, we can look at the math and logic of this.
Rise cost a total of $145 million and made $103 million, considered a flop basically as it did not make it’s money back, although it did make $203 million in foreign gross.
The Croods cost $135 million and made $187 million, making it’s money back and then some, and even made a lot more in foreign gross with $400.
The Croods did better worldwide, and why? Because at it’s heart, the story was simple, and can relate to any number of people who have a struggle to survive and love of family. Not everybody celebrates Christmas, or even believes in Santa, so they don’t relate to Rise.
And honestly, Guy from The Croods has way less clothing than Jack, is way cooler, funnier, better voice actor, so screw Jack Frost and his fan base. Brooding deep emotion characters aren’t as fun as the comical natural born leaders in love.
So I welcome a Croods animated series, and sequel, and also John Cleese from Monty Python came up with the story line, and also Nicholas Cage, and also Belt is freakin’ adorable. Thank you and goodnight… also Owl City song.
