After the modest success of the first installment, Kanbar was set to finance this sequel themselves, when The Weinstein Company decided to co-finance Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil with Kanbar. The Weinstein Company stopped contributing payments part way through the production, leading to a lawsuit that tied the film up for two years after completion. The film was eventually released by Kanbar, who paid for the P&A, which cost $36 million and they used The Weinstein Company’s distribution arm. The $30 million toon bombed opening weekend with $4,108,630 mostly coming from 3D showings — placing #6 for the weekend led by opener Fast Five and far behind the animated Rio in its third weekend in release. Hoodwinked Too! dropped 50.3% to $2,042,603 in its second frame and quietly closed its US run with just $10,143,779. After theaters take their percentage of the gross, Kanbar saw back about $5.5 million, plus a fee to The Weinstein Company. Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil pulled in just $13 million overseas, posting major red ink for Kanbar, who probably saw nothing back from the overseas gross when distributors either lost money on the title or broke even at best, when it went straight to video in some countries. Kanbar hasn’t put another pic into production. Interest on home video was non-existent as well, selling just $4.1 million in the US (less after resellers take their cut and manufacturing costs).
