DreamWorks and Universal are ready to release their highly anticipated animated film, ‘Trolls Band Together,’ this Friday with lofty expectations. However, this time, the anticipated animated sequel from Universal does not seem to be making a significant impact at the box office. The film is facing tough competition from major releases, including the prequel to the ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Thanksgiving.’ Despite being part of a popular series, the film’s lackluster buzz is evident. So, will this be a good start?
Trolls Band Together Box Office Prediction
Despite the success of its predecessors, ‘Trolls Band Together’ finds itself struggling to generate the same level of pre-release excitement. The lackluster buzz surrounding the film has raised questions about its potential to make a significant impact at the box office, especially when faced with competing films. Given the mentioned challenges, industry analysts are predicting a cautious debut for ‘Trolls Band Together.’ The threequel is anticipated to bring in around $25-30 million during its opening weekend across the 3800+ theaters in the USA, which could be a poor start for family content.
The lifetime box office trajectory of ‘Trolls Band Together’ is poised to be a tale of resilience and word-of-mouth redemption. Despite an average start domestically, the film is banking on its family content, positive buzz, and word of mouth to pave the way for sustained success in the long run. With a lifetime predicted domestic haul of $100 million and a global tally of $255 million, the film aims to recoup its $90 million budget and break-even mark. While the international performance is anticipated to play a pivotal role in achieving this goal, the $255 million global projection falls short of the expectations set by previous entries in the beloved “Trolls” series.
Though not a financial failure, the film’s inability to reach the heights of its predecessors may leave the makers yearning for a more resounding triumph in the fiercely competitive landscape of animated blockbusters. Even though the predicted numbers are average, it doesn’t mean that the Threequel can’t perform better. Even before this, many films from DreamWorks and Universal have exceeded box office expectations by providing tough competition to major releases. So, there’s still hope that ‘Trolls 3′ will achieve the same.
All eyes will be on the box office numbers to see how ‘Trolls Band Together’ manages to navigate the hurdles and find its place in the competitive landscape of holiday movie releases. Will the “Trolls” triumph over adversity, or will they find themselves overshadowed by the ‘Hunger Games’ and ‘Thanksgiving’? Only time will tell as audiences flock to theaters to experience the magic of ‘Trolls Band Together’ on the big screen.
