campaign and teamwork. We are looking forward to working with them on THE NUT JOB

“We’re thrilled that audiences have embraced these characters and it is exciting to
anticipate their return for another adventure in THE NUT JOB 2,” said Karz. “The
entire team behind this movie did a fantastic job and we’re looking forward to
working with them again.”
