Tropa de Elite 2 – Box Office Hit

This past weekend, the sequel to the immensely popular film Tropa de Elite came out and so far, it’s a hit at the box office in Brazil. I haven’t seen it yet so I’m not sure whether that’s due to its predecessor or if the sequel really is as good. Over 1.2 million people went to see it in the cinemas (as opposed to buying it from a street vendor, which this time was strictly controlled) making it the fifth best premiere in Brazilian cinema and the best premiere of a sequel ever. So far, it has made R$14 million.
