Film-Review-Rio-2 Tenc
A scene from the animated film “Rio 2.”
It was inevitable that Blue Sky/20th Century Fox would make a sequel to “Rio,” a modest hit in 2011 that earned almost $500 million worldwide. That’s what studios do: milk each intellectual property for as much box-office revenue as possible. It was probably inevitable that “Rio 2” would move Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway) into the parenthood phase of life.
