Angry Birds Vs Angry Birds 2
The first Angry Bird Movie, released in 2016, didn’t exactly get the warmest reception from critics, but a sequel was definitely inevitable. The result was the major box office collection success. Made with a $73 million Budget, the film crossed the century mark in America with a $107.5 million gross, but the total balloons to $352.3 million when you also include all of the cash flowing in from foreign territories.
But again there will be significant chance for the sequel to hit even bigger when it comes out this summer.
