In 2013, Disney released their film, Planes, theatrically. Sort of a Cars in the air, it proved to be a modest success. Disney was so sure of this happening that they even planned a release date for the sequel BEFORE the first one was even released! And it’s this sequel we’re looking at today!

Whether you enjoyed last year’s Planes or not, Disney was adamant about making a sequel to it that they even planned the sequel’s release date before the original was even released!

And now, the sequel has been released and opened up at the #3 slot in the weekend box office. The film, which features our main character thrust into the world of fire and rescue missions, made a weekend gross of $18 million. With a budget of $50 million, the film could probably still make some sort of profit.

I’ll probably check the film out when it comes to DVD because it actually interests me more than the original, but not so much as to see it in the theaters. Also, Ed Harris is one of the voices and he’s always awesome!
