“UglyDolls” Movie With Blake Shelton & Kelly Clarkson Is Flopping at the Box Office

The new UglyDolls movie is not performing as hoped at the box office.

After opening on May 3, the flick has reportedly only grossed $14.2 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo, with a $45 million production budget.

MovieWeb.com reported: “Unfortunately, with such a tepid debut, it’s long-term prospects aren’t great, even when factoring in international box office. As such, it’s expected to lose a good chunk of change for the studio [STXfilms].”

The movie has been panned by critics, with a score of 30 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson voice animated charters in the UglyDolls movie, which is based on the UglyDolls toy brand that features “characters who are distinct for their endearing ‘ugliness’ in a wonderful ‘uglyverse’ where differences are celebrated and embraced.”

According to the movie’s press release, “Unconventionality rules in UglyDolls, the new animated family adventure based on the beloved toy brand. In the adorably different town of Uglyville, the free-spirited Moxy and her friends confront what it means to be different, struggle with their desire to be loved, and ultimately discover that you don’t have to be perfect to be amazing because who you truly are is what matters most.”

Blake’s character, Ox, fancies himself the defacto mayor of the UglyDolls, while Kelly voices Moxy, the confident leader of the group.

STXfilms released UglyDolls in theaters on May 3, one week earlier than the initial plan. An animated kids series is also underway with a full series order of 26 episodes from Hulu.
