Sony Pictures Animation’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 opened in the United States this weekend in first place with a gross of $34 million. Its debut was stronger than the original film’s $30.3M opening, but its per-theater fell by 10%. Directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, its opening was noticeably weaker than Sony’s last film, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Translyvania, which premiered on the same weekend last year with $42.5 million. Cloudy 2 has a bright future ahead of it though. No animated family films will open until November 1, when Relativity releases Free Birds.
