Aside from the star-studded Hollywood blockbusters, it’s impossible to guess which Netflix films will stand out from the crowd and become overnight sensations, and there can’t have been many people who expected them Troll Breaking records.
Ultimately, the rather unremarkable Norwegian creature film was neither hyped nor touted as a classic, even though it received plenty of critical acclaim with an approval rating of 89 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. And yet the film decimated ratings for weeks, ending its first 28 days on the platform as the most-watched non-English original in Netflix history.
Actually the only surprising thing about it diversity Confirmation that a sequel is in active development is the fact that it took so long and Troll premiered on December 1st last year. So the gang will get back together, although unsurprisingly at this early stage there are no plot details, even if the end of the first part left the door wide open for more carnage from the deepest, darkest depths of the planet the mountains could come to light.
Of course, it would be easy to bring in more trolls and call it a day, but now that expectations are higher than anyone could have expected given its status as a record-breaker and premier in-house exclusive, what’s going on is nothing other than the numbers returning director Roar Uthaug may be trying to upend the norms to avoid second-film syndrome.
