Animation Magazine - - Awards Preview -

Stu­dio: Sony Pic­tures An­i­ma­tion Di­rec­tors: Cody Cameron, Kris Pearn Dis­trib­u­tor: Columbia Pic­tures Re­lease Date: Septem­ber 27 Box Of­fice: $124.7 mil­lion [$93.6 mil­lion] Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 63% Synop­sis: Fol­low­ing the events of the first film, Flint Lock­wood (Bill Hader) is fi­nally be­ing rec­og­nized for his ge­nius, and is in­vited to work for his sci­ence idol, Chester V, whose com­pany hap­pens to be tasked with clean­ing up the Swal­low Falls dis­as­ter. When Flint and friends re­turn to the is­land, they find it over­run by strange hy­brid “food­i­mals”—some friendly and some de­li­ciously dan­ger­ous. The Odds: While en­joy­ing a mostly pos­i­tive re­cep­tion, Cloudy 2 crit­ics thought that the first out­ing’s orig­i­nal­ity and story qual­ity were par­tially re­placed by whizz-bang vi­su­als—al­though what’s not to love about a tribe of an­thro­po­mor­phic pick­les is be­yond us.
