This Easter there is more than one bunny in town as Disney’s ZOOTROPOLIS continues its global domination at the box office with a “roarsome” opening in the UK. The film – which is delighting kids and adults alike - has already taken more than £4.2M in box office and is on course to record an opening weekend (including previews) of over £5M. The result follows praise from critics across the globe whose reviews have certified Zootropolis “fresh” with a rare 99% on leading reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
The film has already been topping the global box office and has earned over $600M to date. In the US the film has taken over $240M alone and in Russia the film is the second biggest film of all time – behind Avatar.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootropolis is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighbourhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootropolis,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”) and is in cinemas everywhere now.
