Ryan Reynolds made news earlier in the week when he appeared as Deadpool and interacted with a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) for the very first time, but another one of Reynolds’ movies is a big hit streaming this week.
The Croods: A New Age, an animated sequel to the 2013 film The Croods, is one of the top movies on Hulu in the world. In 2021, the movie actually ranks ninth among movies on Hulu, according to FlixPatrol, but it’s picked up incredible momentum over the past month or so.
A New Age finished atop the Hulu movie charts in June, and it remains in the top three in July. This week, the movie is fourth, behind Independence Day, Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), and Monster Hunter. In addition to its success on Hulu, The Croods: A New Age is among the top movies on Google, Vudu, Amazon, and Fandango this year.
In the movie, Reynolds reprises his role as Guy, a teenage caveman. In the first film, Guy met the Crood family, comprised of father Grug (Nicolas Cage), mother Ugga (Catherine Keener), son Thunk (Clark Duke), daughter Sandy (Randy Thom), the elderly Gran (Cloris Leachman), and daughter Eep (Emma Stone), the curious love interest of Guy.
While this is one of Ryan Reynolds’ most recently-released films, he has begun promoting his upcoming action comedy movie, Free Guy, which releases in theaters in the United States on Aug. 13, 2021.
