Abominable opened at No.1 the US box office this weekend (Sept. 27 – 29) as DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio’s fantasy adventure debuted to $20.85 million in North America, marking the best opening of the year for an original animated film.
Abominable takes audiences on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of Shanghai to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. In the film, when teenager Yi (Chloe Bennet) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.
As the journey of their lifetimes becomes a flat-out race to the finish, Everest will help Yi, Jin and Peng unlock an inner bravery they didn’t know they had and—as they strive to return the mystical creature to the place where he belongs—Everest will help them discover where they truly belong, too.
In Philippine cinemas October 2, Abominable is distributed in the Philippines by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
