Taking Flight in Foreign Lands

Fox/Blue Sky's Rio rolls out overseas.

Blue Sky Studios’ family animation takes off in approximately 45 territories and should have little trouble soaring to the top of the charts in a number of territories.

Fox International has plotted a wide release one week ahead of the North American launch and significantly this includes a number of key piracy markets such as China, the UK, Russia and Spain. ...

Within a few days, we'll know if the Brazilian birds have traction in foreign venues. First place? Wouldn't surprise me.

Rio = HIT.

It's a colorful trifle. Just barely worth the running time, and strictly a kids film, like rango. At least Rio looks good.

Hope it does well.

Virtually the same comment has been made about every animated film that's been released in the last year and a half. What's your point, aside from the obvious fact that you have no point?

Besides, Rango is not for kids either. What a moron!

No--rango made for very small children. Same audience as rio and maes needs moms.

This anti-Rango person who constantly posts on here bores me.

If he/she is in this industry, then they are in the wrong industry.

Also, go RIO

How long do you think it will take before Blue Sky garners the same number of, "I hate them because the general public loves them" comments as Dream Works and Pixar do on this blog? Reminds me of that old Don Henley song, Dirty Laundry - "Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they're down"

This statement is so incredibly wrong, I don't even know where to start.

I already saw it (I'm from Spain)... It's completely different from Rango (you cannot even compare them!). This is an animated film for kids, not for grown ups... (but at least it's miles better than "Hop" and that kind of "family entertainment".)

The story is good but not great(think "Robots", "Cloudy with a Chance..." or the two Ice Age sequels).

I took my 7 year old nephew and he really, really loved it.

I've seen it, too. It's much stronger than Robots and the Ice Age sequels, in both the animation and the story departments. It's too different from Cloudy to make that comparison.

Rango isn't that adult except for the look of it, but I liked it fine.

My kids were bored with rango, and so was I. And it wasn't "adult" looking...just ugly.

Another faggot comment from the anti-Rango basher.

That's probably why rango didn't do as well, if it was more family friendly probably would have made more.

I don't see any "faggot comments" anywhere. I completely agree Rango WAS an awful cartoon, and it was ugly. It will eventually make it's money back, though. Let's hope if there's a sequel, they hire some adults with good taste to put it together.

I went to see Rango, to see what the fuss was all about.

Turns out it's just a cartoon!

Be forewarned, before you spend your money thinking you're getting a real movie.
