Box Office: 'Super Troopers 2' Is A Breakout Sequel And Mini-Event Movie

Scott Mendelson

Sure, there are plenty of examples of past-their-prime comedy sequels limping into theaters under the presumption that the vocal minority fanbase represents a majority, but even Dumber and Dumber To opened with $35 million 3.5-years ago. No, I didn’t see Super Troopers 2 and I barely remember the first one. While $13.5m is a lot for a movie like this, the original cost $3m, this is a decent opening weekend for a sequel that could have played to relatively empty theaters 16 years after the first film.
