The Chinese mainland has fueled the bulk of the film’s overseas box office with 300 million yuan (around 45.8 million U.S. dollars) after 18 days of launch.

Universal and DreamWorks’ “The Croods: A New Age” won the North American box office for the third weekend in a row with 3.01 million U.S. dollars from 2,115 locations, according to studio figures collected by measurement firm Comscore.

The adventure comedy film has grossed 24.26 million dollars in North America through Sunday. There is no new release from major Hollywood studios to draw audiences back this weekend as only 36 percent of North American theaters are currently open amid ongoing pandemic.

Helmed by Joel Crawford in his feature directorial debut, “The Croods: A New Age,” with a reported budget of 65 million dollars, features the voice talent of returning stars, including Nicolas Cage, Catherine Keener, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds.

The sequel to 2013’s original film follows the prehistoric Crood family who sets off into the world in search of a safer place to live and meets another family that’s a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder.

Over the weekend, “The Croods: A New Age” scored an additional 8.43 million dollars in 12 international markets, bringing its global tally to 76.34 million dollars.

The Chinese mainland has fueled the bulk of the film’s overseas box office with 300 million yuan (around 45.8 million U.S. dollars) after 18 days of launch, according to the major Chinese film database Maoyan.

“The Croods: A New Age” is now the second-biggest Hollywood title of the year in the Chinese mainland, only behind “Tenet,” Forbes reported.
