“The Peanuts Movie” Holds Second Place at Box Office for Second Week

CGI Peanuts Movie

In its second week of release, 20th Century Fox/Blue Sky Studios’ The Peanuts Movie shows continued strength at the box office, placing second behind the latest James Bond movie Spectre at the U.S. domestic box office with an estimated $24.2 million in ticket sales, bringing its two-week cumulative total to an estimated $82.49 million. However, The Peanuts Movie has not been doing as well internationally, earning only $8.1 million in 12 territories so far, including a “disappointing” $4.2 million in China.

In a related story, Jean Schulz responded to the movie’s initial box office success by saying her late husband Charles Schulz would have been “very pleased” with the movie’s reception but that she and the cartoonist’s family are in no hurry to greenlight a sequel. She stated that making The Peanuts Movie, “took eight years, so maybe we’ll talk again then.”

Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs.
