Two months ago, I posted pics of the Croods movie theater merchandise aimed at the American market. Today, I've got a photo of the slightly different movie theater merch that'll be available in Europe.
The main differences seem to be (1.) the addition of the elephant/mouse to the cup toppers, (2.) the soda cup cozies, and (3.) a Thunk-themed popcorn bag.
While the first two would probably do well in the States, the popcorn bags featuring Thunk would be a MUCH harder sell. My fellow Americans are already super sensitive about their ever-expanding waistlines. Putting The Croods' chubby comic relief on our bags of heavily-buttered, suicidally-salted popcorn would do little to increase concession stand sales.
That said, talk radio's inevitable outrage over this animated attack on our cultural identity would lead to a lot of free press for the film...
