A Look Into Universal 2021: These Movies Won't Dolittle at the Box Office
In this post, I will focus on Universal Pictures, the studio that made sure Trolls World Tour made history by being a large film without a wide theatrical release. Besides that, this studio is well known for Jaws, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, The Fast and the Furious, Despicable Me, and The Secret Life of Pets. Some of the best films of all time were made by Universal like Touch of Evil, To Kill a Mockingbird, Back to the Future, Do the Right Thing, and Schindler’s List. Most recently, the studio is well known for Cats, 1917, The Invisible Man, and Trolls World Tour.
The Current Situation of Universal Pictures Universal has been doing very well since 2015. 2015 was the year they dominated the box office with Jurassic World, Furious 7, and Minions. 2015 proved that those were Universal’s largest franchises. However, they seem to be coming to an end with the new decade. In a way, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the inevitable that these three main franchises are looking to end by 2026. Let’s take a look at how Universal did this year and how they can possibly do next year.
2020 Dolittle - The year started with Dolittle (considering that 1917 is a 2019 film, even if it didn’t release nationwide until January 10, 2020), which blew up in Universal’s face. The film made $223M on a budget of $175M, making the film one of the biggest box office bombs and losing Universal $100M. The extremely high budget killed the film’s chances of success to begin with. Either this film shouldn’t have been made or it should’ve been animated, similar to Universal's Cats (which also bombed).
The Turning - This is the film that got people TURNING away from the film and watching Bad Boys for Life instead. It makes sense as The Turning is said to be one of the worst films of 2020, alongside The Grudge (both the Grudge and the Turning got F Cinemascores). In terms of financially the film didn’t fare any better, making $19M on a budget of $14M, making this film an underperformance.
The Photograph - This romantic drama was just there when it came out. Sure, it got good reviews, but Sonic the Hedgehog came out the same day and topped the box office. The Photograph made $21M on a budget of $16M, making this film an underperformance. Theatrical romantic movies just aren’t getting as much traction now as they have before, unless it’s based on a book with a sizable audience to begin with, like Fifty Shades of Grey and Crazy Rich Asians. Universal’s slate up to the Photograph wasn’t looking too good. Fortunately, things were starting to turn around for Universal. We just couldn’t see it.
The Invisible Man - The Invisible Man was amazing. And many other people felt the same way. The film made $126M on a budget of $7M, which is a huge win for Blumhouse and Universal. While COVID-19 prevented the Invisible Man from being more profitable, the film still did well enough. If COVID-19 didn’t happen, I’d say the film would’ve made at least $80M domestically and could’ve possibly broke the $100M mark in the US and Canada. The film would’ve made at least $160M worldwide and could’ve possibly broke the $200M mark worldwide. Regardless, the Invisible Man is a success..
The Hunt - This film was unfortunate to release on March 13, 2020, alongside Lionsgate’s I Still Believe and Sony’s Bloodshot. The film was only around for one weekend in theaters before COVID-19 prevented the film from making any more money. The film only made $7M on a budget of $14M, which would mean that it lost money in normal circumstances. The question is: How well would the Hunt have done without COVID-19 ending its box office run right after opening weekend? The film was projected to make $8-11M on opening weekend. Let’s take the most optimistic number, $11M and consider that the opening weekend. I’d say the Hunt makes $30M domestically at most. Throw in about $5M from international markets (I don’t know how well this film will do outside of the US), and you get $35M worldwide on a budget of $14M. It would be an okay performance, but nothing to be proud of like the Invisible Man’s performance.
Trolls World Tour - This was the movie that pissed off movie theaters. It had a simultaneous release in theaters (mostly drive-in theaters) and on VOD. On a budget of $110M, it made $38M theatrically. While VOD sales aren’t made clear, it was reported by IndieWire that the film made about $150M from rentals. Let’s say in total, the film made about $190M on a budget of $110M, which means that the film didn’t do great, or at least as well as the original Trolls’ $347M. Sure, it broke records on VOD, but that doesn’t mean it was able to succeed like the original. Had Trolls World Tour released under normal circumstances, I think this film could’ve made $360M WW, more than the original.
The King of Staten Island - This was the second film that Universal also put on VOD, but this time exclusively. The film made $2.2M in theaters in countries that gave it a theatrical release. It was reported by the Hollywood Reporter that the film made about $40M for Universal. Let’s say in total, the film made about $42M on a budget of $35M. Regardless of where the film was released, I don’t think this film would’ve been able to be profitable for Universal. Comedy films haven’t done so well in recent years, and I really don’t see The King of Staten Island making at least $80M if it went theatrical.
Freaky - This is supposedly the first film under the Universal-AMC (and most recently Cinemark) deal where Freaky will be released exclusively in theaters for 17 days before also releasing on VOD. AMC and Cinemark are expected to make about 10% of Freaky’s VOD sales, but Freaky could still play in theaters after its VOD release if it’s successful enough. As of this post, the film has made $5.4M on a budget of $6M (should be able to hit $6M before the film’s second Friday). I’d say by the end of its run, the film would make at least $15M (at least theatrically), making this film profitable. The possible success of Freaky could convince other film studios to release any low budget films (maybe ones that cost $10M or less) in theaters sometime before the year ends.
2020 Films That Haven’t Been Released Yet
There are three films that haven’t been released yet that are still slated to come out in 2020: The Croods: A New Age, All My Life, and News of the World. Let’s see how well these films could do, assuming they stay in 2020.
DISCLAIMER - This editorial will most likely not adapt based on future delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m detailing the current situation as it is as of November 21, 2020. I’m assuming that everything should be fine enough for The Croods: A New Age to release theatrically on November 25, 2020.
The Croods: A New Age - It’s a Dreamworks Animation adventure comedy film directed by Joel Crawford and is the sequel to The Croods. With the pandemic still an issue, this will definitely make less than its predecessor. Even without the pandemic, the seven year gap is going to hurt the film. I’d say this film makes $60M DOM and $160M WW. Fortunately, Universal only spent $65M compared to $175M spent on the original Croods, or the film would’ve been a major box office bomb. The Croods: A New Age should be a moderate success for now. Under normal circumstances, I think the film would’ve made $150M DOM and $400M WW.
All My Life - It’s a romantic drama film directed by Marc Meyers. This probably won’t make its money back during a pandemic. I’d say this makes $30M DOM and $40M WW, but that’s being very optimistic.
News of the World - It’s a western drama film directed by Paul Greengrass and stars Tom Hanks. The only places this film is getting a theatrical release is in the United States and China. I doubt China would give this western drama much attention, and I’m not entirely sure how the US will be by Christmas. Being very optimistic, the film should make $40M DOM and $50M WW.
2021 The next year is coming, and it’s time to look at what Universal has in store for everyone next year. I’ll try to keep it short (with a basic description of each one if necessary and how well it might do). The numbers I have won’t be accurate, so take it with a grain of salt.
The 355 It’s a spy film directed by Simon Kinberg. This seems like a movie that could bring moviegoers back to the theaters. I could see this being one of the first box office hits of 2021. I’d say this makes $110M DOM and $250M WW.
Nobody It’s an action thriller film directed by Ilya Naishuller. Not much is known about the film, except that it stars Bob Odenkirk. This will do less than Universal’s previous film, The 355, and it’s okay to compare the two because they're both action films. I’d say this makes $80M DOM and $200M WW.
The Boss Baby: Family Business It’s a comedy film directed by Tom McGrath and is a sequel to Dreamworks Animation’s The Boss Baby back in 2017. Reception of the previous film seems lukewarm, but the film somehow made $175M domestically and $528M worldwide. Dreamworks doesn’t have many properties to work with after Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon finished their trilogy, so it makes sense that this would get a sequel. However, I see the film making slightly less than the first one as the first film seems more of a novelty than something that can successfully be replicated. I’d say it makes $160M domestically and $500M worldwide.
No Time to Die It’s a spy film directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and is the final 007 film starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. While there were rumors that No Time to Die could be sold off to streaming, let’s assume it doesn’t (and it most likely won’t). Along with The 355, it could be one of the first action films to bring people back into movie theaters. I’d say this makes $220M DOM and $1.07B WW, less than Skyfall but more than Spectre and every other James Bond film.
BIOS It’s a science fiction drama film directed by Miguel Sapochnik. Not much is known about the film, except the plot which is about the last man on Earth going on a journey with his dog. This seems like it could be a moderate success. I’d say it makes $70M DOM and $150M WW.
Marry Me It’s a romantic comedy film directed by Kat Coiro. Not going to lie, I was a little interested in the plot of this film, in which a well known singer decides to marry a stranger after realizing her partner is having an affair. I don’t expect this to do gangbusters, but it could do a little better than modern romantic comedies. I’d say this makes $40M DOM and $50M WW.
F9 It’s an action film directed by Justin Lin and is the ninth film in the mainline Fast & Furious franchise. It looks to be as crazy, if not crazier than the previous films. But that’s okay, as this seems like a fun popcorn flick that a lot of people will go out to see. I’d say this makes $240M DOM and $1.25B WW, slightly more than The Fate of the Furious, but not as much as Furious 7, which I doubt will ever be surpassed.
Spirit Untamed It’s a Dreamworks animated film directed by Elaine Bogan and Ennio Torresan and is based on the Spirit Riding Free series and a sequel to Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. As long as the budget is low ($70M or below), I can see this being a moderate success. I’d say this makes $100M DOM and $150M WW.
Minions: The Rise of Gru It’s a comedy film and is made by Illumination. Ever since The Secret Life of Pets 2, this film has become a little more like a wildcard. I don’t see this hitting $1B, with Despicable Me 3 barely being able to do so and the Minions craze mostly being dead. I’m sure this will decrease from Despicable Me 3, but it’s unknown by how much. Would it decrease by a few hundred or by half? I’d say this makes $220M domestically and $550M worldwide. Regardless, I don’t see this hitting $1B at all. I don’t think Universal should even make a Despicable Me 4. Minions: The Rise of Gru should be the last one in the series for now. Get another franchise Illumination.
The Forever Purge It’s a dystopian action science fiction horror film directed by Everado Gout and is the final film in the Purge series. With the pattern that the Purge movies keep doing better, I’d say this one will follow that pattern, especially if it ends the series on a high note. I’d say this film makes $80M DOM and $150M WW.
Old It’s a thriller film directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The poster of this film has me intrigued, despite not knowing the plot of the film. I don’t expect this film to do as well as Split or Glass, but as long as the movie is good, I can see this making $100M DOM and $220M WW.
Respect It’s a biographical drama film directed by Liesl Tommy and is based on the life of Aretha Franklin. Music biopics have been on the rise since Bohemian Rhapsody hit theaters in 2018. I’d expect this film to perform similarly to Rocketman. With that in mind, I’d say this makes $110M DOM and $210M WW.
Candyman It’s a supernatural slasher film directed by Nia DaCosta and is a sequel to Candyman (1992). As a sequel, it shouldn’t share the same name as the first film, but that’s just me. With Jordan Peele’s production company attached to this film, I could see this film doing a lot better than the 1992 film. I’d say this film makes $70M DOM and $120M WW.
The Bad Guys It’s a Dreamworks animated heist comedy film directed by Pierre Perifel. Not much is known about this film except the plot, which is about a group of misunderstood villains that try to be better. I think this film can be a success and will make similar numbers to Abominable. I’d say this makes $80M DOM and $200M WW.
The Addams Family 2 It’s a black comedy film directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan and is a sequel to 2019’s The Addams Family. The first one did surprisingly well, and I expect the second one to do slightly better. I’d say this makes $120M DOM and $250M WW.
Halloween Kills It’s a slasher film directed by David Gordon Green and is the second film in the Halloween 2018 trilogy. This one looks to follow the same footsteps that Halloween 2018 did, which is a good thing. I’d say this makes $170M DOM and $270M WW.
Sing 2 It’s a musical comedy film directed by Garth Jennings and is the sequel to Illumination’s Sing. The five year gap from 2016 to 2021 may come to the film’s detriment but not by a lot. Regardless, I don’t see this film surpassing its predecessor, especially seeing The Secret Life of Pets 2 dropping significantly from the original’s $876M to the sequel’s $430M. Sing 2’s drop won’t be as brutal as The Secret Life of Pets, but I wouldn’t expect an increase. I’d say this makes $250M DOM and $600M WW.

Halloween Kills - Should move from October 15, 2021 to October 22, 2021 (Like with The Addams Family 2, Universal will try to keep this film in October. Hopefully it doesn’t get pushed back again to 2022 unless it’s really necessary)
Minions: The Rise of Gru - Should move from July 2, 2021 to December 22, 2021 (Replacing Sing 2, but I’m sure Universal will try to keep this release date unless the movie theater industry is still uncertain by May)
Sing 2 - Should move from December 22, 2021 to July 1, 2022
Thoughts on 2021 Slate - Universal’s 2020 Slate walked so Universal’s 2021 Slate could run. And run it will. Universal is going all out with this 2021 Slate. The Boss Baby 2, No Time to Die, F9, Spirit Untamed, Minions: The Rise of Gru, The Forever Purge, The Addams Family 2, Halloween Kills, and Sing 2 are all a part of strong franchises that Universal has (No Time to Die and The Addams Family 2 has United Artists Releasing distributing the film domestically, but still). I believe Universal will have a strong 2021. The 355 could hypothetically be a new franchise for Universal, which is what Universal needs for the future after Jurassic World, Fast & Furious, and Minions are done. Speaking of the future, let’s see what Universal’s future is.
Universal on Streaming - Peacock was released on July 2020. It's free with ads and $5 without ads. I think it's a good service, but I still see Universal pulling films from the service from time to time instead of just keeping it there like with Disney+.
The Future - The mainline Fast & Furious series will end after two more installments. A female-led Fast & Furious and a Hobbs & Shaw sequel are currently in development, but they probably won’t be released until as early as 2023. Halloween Kills will get a sequel in the form of Halloween Ends, which is meant to be the last Halloween film in a while. Universal and Illumination are partnering with Nintendo to make a Mario film, which I’m cautiously optimistic about. After 2022, it seems like Universal doesn’t have any much strong franchises to rely on. Jurassic World: Dominion is said to be the last Jurassic World film (for now, but I’d expect there to be at least a five year gap before another Jurassic Park film). Minions: The Rise of Gru will most likely be the last Despicable Me film in a while and it should be. I know a Despicable Me 4 is in development, but I really think Universal shouldn’t make the film in order to not milk the franchise too dry. Universal’s best bet at new franchises will most likely come from Nintendo. If the Mario film is a critical and financial success, I’m sure Universal would want to make sequels to the Mario film and make other films based on Nintendo franchises (I’m assuming that Nintendo would keep partnering with Universal to make films from other Nintendo franchises, especially since they are partnering with Universal for Super Nintendo World). Video game franchises like The Legend of Zelda and Metroid (I’d love to see that) could possibly become films.
