The Hollywood Reporter talked to DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, who said that they are not sure if a sequel to Monsters vs. Aliens will move forward because of its underperformance in some major international markets.
“This is the first movie we’ve had that’s right on the bubble,” Katzenberg said.
Katzenberg said executives will make discussions of a possible “Monsters” sequel part of their annual worldwide marketing tour.
“Monsters” has grossed $377 million worldwide at the boxoffice, with $198 million coming domestically. Some territories performed well, while others were “very big misses,” Katzenberg said.
“Domestically it has performed at a level that would surely qualify it as a sequel, and internationally it did not,” he said.
