Movie theaters may be closed but “Trolls World Tour” managed to make $100 million since debuting on- demand earlier this month… makes sense since the rental price is $20! The original Trolls film made $116 million the first three weeks in the box office back in 2016.
We do have a little bit of drama from this! NBCUniversal CEO, Jeff Shell, made a comment about movie theaters not being necessary. So because of this AMC, the largest movie chain in the country, is threatening to ban Universal Pictures from playing in their theaters.
“It is disappointing to us, but Jeff’s comments as to Universal’s unilateral actions and intentions have left us with no choice. Therefore, effectively immediately AMC will no longer play any Universal movies in any of our theaters in the United States, Europe or the Middle East.” -AMC Theatres chair-CEO Adam Aron
