Moviebuffs always welcome experimental films even if they are of low budget. Rio serves as a best example for those who are of the opinion that only high budget movies play big in theatres.
Written and directed by Cardos Saldana, Rio is a 3D film (3 dimensional view) that had hit theatres on April 15. With the film being a 3D one, people have to watch the film with spectacles. Though a considerable amount of people are thronging the theatres to have a 3D experience, the storyline of the film remains the hero.
Rio is the story about a macaw that is usually found in central parts of America. This parrot, which actually belongs to Brazil (in the cinema) returns to its native Brazil from America after a series of adventures. Coming to the movie’s collection part–Rio, has recorded a collection of 40 million USD through tickets in the first three days of its release in the United States and Canada. Besides, Rio has created much hype among the children with a video game on Reo releasing much before the release of the film.
According to box office analysts at Toronto Sun,
It also provided some rare good news at the box office where sales so far this year are down 19 percent to $2.65 billion.
Rio was not only receiving good response in US, but also in other parts of the world. In France, Mexico, Germany, and Brazil, the film was a big success and fetched 18.9 million USD. The direction of Cardos, screenplay of Don Rymer, and the vocie over of actor Jesse Eisenberg are assets of the film. All in all, we have to await year end to know if Rio is the biggest blockbuster of the year in the United States.
